Q

Keeping hackers away

Can you list some ways to help keep hackers from accessing and damaging my data?

Apply all known fixes to your systems and install a firewall. The next few steps may be:

  • Perform an ethical attack (e.g. war dialing) on your system to find vulnerabilities.

Baseline -- develop a sound security policy, implement it and enforce it.
