In order to protect yourself and help minimise the risk of cybercrime attacks, be careful with personal file sharing and ensure you have the right kind of file storage. You should also keep your important data, files and photos safe with regular and effective backups.
Safe and secure backup
It is imperative that you have the correct support in place for digital photo storage and file backup, with folder security and storage encryption being of vital importance.
Any kind of digital storage is subject to failure, and when it comes to sentimental digital files such as photos, a system failure can be truly devastating. This is why you should regularly backup your digital photos and other files.
An advanced antivirus software program should always include backup features. For example, Kaspersky PURE software automatically backs up data which can then be restored if any data is lost.
For your personal files, use a storage encryption program to ensure that your data stays confidential in the event of malware attacks, unsecure WiFi connections and even if your laptop or storage device is lost or stolen. Encrypted data is only accessible via a strong password that is highly resistant to brute force attacks.
Products such as Kaspersky KryptoStorage securely protect your personal files against unauthorized access and data theft using cutting-edge transparent encryption technology and allows deleted files to be permanently erased from your computer.
Most importantly, storage encryption software safeguards your private life from identity fraud, unwelcome attention and malicious attacks.
