Ensure Safe Networks; Free from Hacking

Incidents of security breaches in corporate firms have become too frequent these days that it has paved way to the critical importance of taking effective measure to ensure cyber security. There have been several cases where the data of the customers has been stolen or their passwords have been leaked online. These hacks do not only bring the embarrassment to the companies but also make them sustain significant financial losses. Of late, securing corporate data has become more of a duty rather than an option.  
So let us tell you some of the measures to protect your network from hackers as told by experts and trainers from ACIT Institute.
·         Maintain a strong firewall – The PCI data security standards prescribe firewalls for compliance. Make sure your firewall is hardened and is supported by virus protection software.
·         Limit remote access – Create strong passwords instead of using the default codes. Change these passwords often. Always change default firewall settings to allow only essential access and limit remote access to secure methods such as VPN.
·         Segment your network – Make sure your POS data traffic is separate from your Wi-Fi system, security cameras or other digital connections. If you want to connect POS via Wi-Fi, connect it through a virtual LAN that separates authorized traffic into a security zone.
·         Conduct regular scans of your network – Scan your system regularly to check for vulnerabilities. For relatively low annual fees, a security vendor will remotely scan all of your external systems access points to determine if any are vulnerable to intrusion.
·         Keep your software updated – Manufacturers frequently update operating systems and POS software to tighten security and eliminate weaknesses vulnerable to hackers. Make sure you download the latest operating system patches and keep all POS software up-to-date.
We hope that you implement these tips to ensure safe and secure networks and protect your systems from hacking. ACIT Education Pvt Ltd has years of experience in helping students clear high certification exams.

Secure your Computer with these Tips

Computers, Laptops, Smartphones or Tablets for that matter are those electronic devices around which our whole life revolves. Imagining our day without these gadgets just make us question our very existence on this planet. These wondrous devices have multifarious uses ranging from completion of that office presentation to trying that newly launched game to texting that childhood friend of yours whom you just found on Facebook.
With every single person using desktops and laptops on day-to-day basis, they are exposed to bugs and threats becoming more vulnerable to cyber criminals and hackers. Hence, we are telling you about discrete ways to keep your systems safe and secure.
·         Switch off your internet router when you do not need internet connectivity. Hackers mostly tend to target connections that are “always on.” If your internet connection is intermittent, then you will be less attractive to them.
·         Ensure that your router has a decent firewall. A firewall is a system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network. Most internet service providers offer a free router and modem when you sign up with them. Make sure that both your router as well as computer has a decent firewall.
·         Keep your computer system up-to-date. Check your computer for updates. There have been many computers where no updates have done to their operating systems. These updates are important significant patches and you may be compromised if you do not install them.
·         Stop visiting porn sites or any other dodgy or affected site. These sites are solely there to get you. They may have been affected by a worm that modifies the website with the intention to infect your computer with virus.
·         Keep your password safe and hard to guess. Use discrete password for every website you sign up to. Also, be prudent about saving passwords on applications on your computer.
·         Most people still prefer internet explorer for browsing. We strongly recommend you to use a decent browser such as Google Chrome as it has been deemed as the most secure browser.
