Why is it so important? This is because the trigger of a cyberattack strategy very often occurs through the use of malware. Malware can steal sensitive data from your computer, slow it down progressively, or use your email accounts, without your knowledge, to send infected emails.
To install themselves on our computers, however, they need the “unwitting” cooperation of the victim.
Some measures can therefore help us to prevent difficult situations:
- Do not open any attachments or links in emails with an unknown sender or with a suspicious subject line or text
Do not “blindly” click on advertisements, banners and pop-ups on the Internet that promise special discounts
Do not enter sensitive data such as login data, bank account, or passwords, if you are not sure of the authenticity of the request
Download apps and files only from reliable sources and avoid downloading unwanted apps or programmes.
