The unveiling of previously classified information relating to the NSA and its PRISM surveillance and global data mining program have only highlighted the fact that internet security and privacy is a valid concern, and not to be taken lightly.
While governments collect staggering amounts of personal data on internet users the world over, hackers, data miners and identity thieves are also hard at work, trying to steal sensitive information like credit card numbers, insurance information, online banking passwords and much more.
How do I Protect Myself Online?
Online security begins when you make the decision to protect yourself at the source. Installing trusted antivirus and anti-malware software goes a long way to ensuring that your PC itself is safe, but what about your data?
When you view bank statements, pay for items online, enter passwords, or sign up for a mailing list, sensitive information is sent from your computer over the internet, where it becomes vulnerable and at risk.
IronSocket's secure VPN connections provide a safe tunnel for your encrypted data, ensuring it reaches its intended destination without being intercepted.
