Our mobile device is the digital version of who we are: Data Privacy Day
Data protection is a key enabler of the digital transformation of an economy.
We celebrate this day #DataPrivacyDay by spreading awareness about respecting privacy, safeguarding data, and enabling trust.
We will be sharing data protection tips on how to protect your data.
Use anti-malware protection.
Malware includes computer viruses, trojan horses, spyware, and more. It is important to use data protection because they are known to be present in inconspicuous places. The best way to avoid getting infected is to run a good anti-virus protection program.
Secure your wireless network.
Always secure your wireless network with a password. You don’t want to accidentally share private information with other people using or connected to your network without permission.
Read the Terms and Condition.
Please ensure to read the ‘Terms and Conditions’ of any agreement -including online- before clicking on “I Agree”. This is an important data protection tip that many often ignore. You may not want to share or grant explicit access to your sensitive data.
Protect your Mobile Device.
Our mobile device is the digital version of who we are. It must be protected by using a secure password, disabling Bluetooth connection when not in use, backing up data on the cloud, and be mindful of the Wi-Fi network you connect to.
Use encrypted services and encrypt your data.
Data encryption has become a marketing tool by technology companies, in a world conscious about its data. However, it is an important security method to ensure user data is protected.
