A couple weeks ago, I wrote about the Avast Red Team’s top 5 security tips for businesses. The Red Team specializes in protecting users on company-wide levels, and our key to success is the way we use offensive techniques for defensive purposes. You could say we’re always actively defending. This approach of staying on guard is beneficial not just for businesses, but also for the individual. With that in mind, I’d like to lay out some basic advice anyone can use to stay on the defensive. But while these tips can (and should) be practiced by everyone, I’m offering them now with particular concern for our senior users.
