In last week’s Common Sense Security post we looked at some of the general rules of thumb that can help minimise damage.

Your browser can be one of the biggest weaknesses both in a corporate environment and in a home environment.
To lower your vulnerability it is important to ensure your browser is updated to the latest version and choose the option NOT to save any credentials. Yes I know this is a pain, but if you struggle to remember passwords, utilise something like keepass which with 1 password, will store all of your passwords in a password database encrypted with AES. Just don’t loose the file!
You can find these under Tools>Safety, also block physical location information gathering.
Tomorrow we’ll look at antivirus and password policies.
