What Is The Importance of Anti-Virus Software?

Friday, March 21st, 2014

Most computer users blindly download, install, and ascribe to an anti-virus program without actually fully understanding the necessity of such software. At DHA Group Inc., we care about your safety and want to ensure your business, files, and computers remain safe and functioning smoothly.In between spaces

What are threats?

Malware, short for “malicious software,” is the catchall phrase for potentially damaging threats to your computer: viruses, trojan horses, worms, spyware, and the like. Generally this software is created to either disrupt or worse – destroy – files and programs on your computer.

What happens when malware infects your computer?

Without a reliable anti-virus program, your infected computer often becomes unusable, requiring the hard drive to be wiped clean, and your computer’s operating system reinstalled. To avoid lost data and a dysfunctional system, effective malware-combatants are necessary.

What does Antivirus software do?

Antivirus software serves double duty, both removing preexisting malware and working to prevent them from occurring in the first place. Taking the precaution against harmful viruses will save you money and time in the long run, protecting your computer and by extension, your business. Let the Information Technology professionals at Working Nets, Inc. help you do just that, by outsourcing your computer support needs from our company.

The Importance of Antivirus and Security Software

What is a Cyber Attack?

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Cyber SecurityThe past few months have been rife with cyber attacks and hackings. As technology evolves, people find ways to evolve with it and learn to overcome security features. A cyber attack is defined as “an attempt to damage or destroy a computer network or system,” by Google. Cyber attacks can come from individuals or even groups that have organized together to attack a specific person, company, or group. Some of the most recent cyber attacks include:

  • Target – With over 40 million credit card numbers stolen from Black Friday through the holiday season, Target’s security breach is one of the worst that has occurred so far.
  • Email breach – 360 million email addresses were recently hacked and include all the big platforms such as Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft. Emails can contain any number of personal details that can lead to identity theft.
  • Snapchat – Most people use Snapchat because you can take pictures, send them, and have them self-destruct within seconds. I’m sure you can see the issue with a cyber attack into Snapchat’s system, since they keep records of all of the pictures sent.

With all of the big companies and social media sites that have been hacked lately, it is becoming more and more important to understand cyber security and how to protect yourself and your information from the skilled hands of hackers. As a business, if your information is privy to a cyber attack, information from not only your business, but from other clients and companies can easily be stolen and preyed upon. Credit card numbers and other important personal information can be taken from your email address or social media sites if you’re not careful. Learn more about the importance of cyber security and consider hiring a consulting service to help keep your personal and professional information safe.

Cybersecurity Includes Staying Safe From Computer Viruses

Friday, March 7th, 2014

Viruses and spyware are probably the worst things that could infect your computer. Not only will they slow down your machine, but they will cause great security threats to your personal data. So how can you keep your data safe and protect your computer?Virus in program code

Fortunately there are a few easy ways:

  • Install an antivirus program – an antivirus program needs to be kept up to date to do its job well. There are a variety of options available that vary on price and amount of coverage. It is best to do some research about each antivirus program to identify which one is right for you.
  • Be mindful of which emails you open – if you do not recognize the email sender, it may be a scam or include a harmful attachment. If you’re not familiar with the sender of the email, don’t open it. Potentially it can be dangerous and cause a lot of harm to your computer system.
  • Use a pop-up blocker- pop-ups are smaller browser windows that can appear on any website you are using. While many are advertisements, others can contain malicious software designed to give you a virus. A popup blocker can prevent this type of window from appearing.
  • Keep your software system updated – companies such as Apple and Windows periodically send out security updates. It is important to keep your computer updated to protect it from the latest security threats.
  • Clear your browsing history – when you’re using a public computer, consider clearing the browser history when you are done. This will protect you from leaving any personal information behind.
