Solutions to Computer Security Threats
  1. Install Anti-Virus Make sure you have installed
    an active anti-virus on your computer/servers. If
    someone is using a remote control to this device,
    make sure the personal system should also have an
    antivirus installed.
  2. Update Antivirus regularly to make sure that the
    system is safe.
  3. Firewall to protect the network Make sure you
    have a firewall to protect your computer from
    unwanted viruses hidden in emails, Portable
    storage devices, etc.
  4. Filter Email traffic Certain file types are most
    commonly used to spread viruses on systems like
    .EXE, COM, SCR, etc
  5. Ensure that all the users know not to open
    unexpected attachments from emails.
  6. Scan all the downloads before using.
  7. Do not run programs downloaded from unknown
    sources. Using a licensed software/Program can
    reduce the risk of compromising your system with

Solutions to Computer Security Threats
  1. Make regular backups of important files to ensure
    that you have a copy of the data in case your
    computer is infected with any virus. For added
    security, keep the backups offsite.
  2. Develop an information security policy and make
    sure all the users are made aware of their
    responsibilities.
  3. Monitor logs and systems regularly to ensure that
    there is no action made that can compromise the
    security of data.
  4. Develop an incident response plan which outlines
    the responsibility of relevant persons/parties in
    the event of security breaches. The worst time to
    develop such a plan is always in between a
    security breach.
  5. Restrict end-user access to the system and make
    sure no one other than administration can access
    the workstation/servers.
