Though not directly related to digital marketing, you probably do your work on a computer at some point during the day.  So your computer is a very important tool for your business and you should protect it.

The first way is to make sure all security updates have been installed recently and run a virus or malware detection program.

The second way is to not to run as an “administrator” for the user account that you use on a daily basis.

Another thing to consider if being carefully about emails you aren’t expecting and websites that act strange.  There are many techniques that are used to try to get control of your computer by you clicking on something or typing in personal information.

Finally, mistakes will happen or stuff will break so having a good backup of your data is very important.  The best backup is one you install on your computer that automatically monitors for changes to your data files and backs them up to the Internet.
