Submitted by on 16 December, 2017 – 4:32 pm

CyberDefender Corporation / quotes/comstock/15 *! Cyde / Sales / nls / Cyde (Cyde 4.00, 0.00, 0.00%), a provider of security software, utilities, and direct support services for PCs that work in tandem to provide greater security to the home PC users, has issued a set of guidelines to keep families safe online.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has declared October National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). According to DHS, “The cyber threat has become one of the most serious security challenges and national economic problems we face. U.S. competitiveness and economic prosperity in the 21st century will depend on effective cybersecurity. Each Internet user has a role to play in securing cyberspace and ensure the safety of ourselves, our families and our online communities. ”

Gary Guseinov, CyberDefender CEO, said: “In honor of NCSAM, CyberDefender has created a set of guidelines designed to help parents set a standard for information security to ensure security for the whole family. Access to the Internet and computers used at home is an increasingly risky proposal, and we believe that public education is key for maximum online security. ”

CyberDefender security guidelines online include:

  – Teams need shared user accounts. The use of unique user accounts
      
allows different security settings based on user age and computer
      
literacy. Browsers and search engines have custom security
      
standards. Learn them and apply the appropriate settings for each member
      
family.
  
– Make sure your anti-virus security and other software are up
      
date. With the proliferation of personal computers – one per room in many
      
homes, connected through a network – which is more important than ever
      
make sure your security software up to date with all systems. Make sure
      
All security programs are configured to allow automatic updates. As a backup,
      
make a list of expiration dates for all systems and check regularly.
  
– Establish a weekly hour for her to do a virus scan on every PC in the house.
      
Regular scanning is necessary to keep any PC or laptop into optimum
      
condition, especially if several people share the team’s home.
      
Using a web browser to search the Internet, clicking on ads or links to
      
popular sites or downloading files are all activities on your PC
      
vulnerable to malware. Most suites anti-virus software come with an analysis
      
function. Schedule one hour a week to run on each PC.
  
– Spend time with each family member online. Take time to talk with each
      
family member about smart computing practices. The basic
      
are as follows: Do not give personal information to anyone, including friends,
      
in the forums or Facebook, do not talk to strangers online, and not
      
drop emails that offer money or free products. CyberDefender of
      
Threat Center has updated information on current threats:
http://www.cyberdefender.com/internet-security-center/early-alert-center.html – Children under 10 must navigate the Internet with an adult. Youth
      
children need a parent to monitor your Internet surfing and
      
teach computer literacy and online threats about possible. Make
      
make sure they understand that any purchase should be approved by a parent.
  
– Use parental controls. Parental controls help protect children by limiting
      
what games they play what websites they visit. All major operating
      
systems, Internet browsers, email and search services have parents
      
controls and / or security settings that will protect users from data
      
theft, computer infection, and worse.
  
– Keep your security software suite running at all times. No matter how
      
Computer users are well-taught or a virus or trojan
      
can accidentally infect any computer. The security software can stop threats
      
before they infect your computer or, if the malware gets through,
      
eliminate the system.
  
– Consider having a personal coach can call the family have
      
a problem. These days, the software alone is not enough. Many problems can
      
case with computer hardware, network or data not related to
      
software. Having someone available that can be called to help resolve your
      
technical issues and questions, and get an education on the optimal
      
security settings for the computer, is a valuable addition to your
      
digital life. CyberDefender offers a service called Remote PC repair
