Link of the Day – Protect Yourself Online

The San Jose Mercury News recently had a nice collection of tips for safer Internet use. Most are common sense, but it never hurts to review the basics:

  1. Make sure your operating system’s automatic updates and firewall are turned on.
  2. Use security programs including anti-virus and anti-spyware software, and subscribe to security updates.
  3. Run a full system scan at least once a month.
  4. Don’t open attachments or click on links in e-mails from people you don’t know.
  5. Use passwords with at least eight characters and numbers and symbols, and change them regularly.
  6. Access the Internet through a router – it creates an implicit firewall for you, so bots can’t reach your machine directly.
  7. Don’t use the same password for every account – and use more complex passwords for “important” transactions, such as with your bank.
  8. Don’t connect to the Internet using a wireless connection without a password.
  9. Don’t send sensitive information to a Web site that does not begin with “https,” which means it’s secured.
  10. When you receive an e-mail, think about whether it’s really from the purported sender, rather than an impostor, before taking action.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
