Internet Security

Are you taking the right steps to safely browse the internet? Data Mining, data breaches, and stolen identities are very likely possibilities whenever you store your personal information online, but the Lebanon IT Department Supervisor Jarrad Schomaker says there are steps you can take to keep your browsing secure.

Using the incognito mode on your browser is a good first step, which will help prevent the storage of cookies, or traceable data on your device. However, using a VPN, or virtual protection network, and encryption can further protect your data. Schomaker also stresses the importance of keeping your internet browser and system up to date.

 

Remember, most reliable VPNs, encryption services, and third-party browsers will have a fee. Do your research, and protect yourself in a way that works best for you.
