Malaysian oganisations must adopt a proactive security posture: Symantec survey

AvantiKumar | April 25, 2014
Know your data and where it is going, advises Symantec's Eric Hoh during the unveiling of an 'era of mega breaches' in the latest Internet Security Threat report.

For Consumers:

  • Be security savvy: Passwords are the keys to your kingdom. Use password management software to create strong, unique passwords for each site you visit and keep your devices - including smartphones - updated with the latest security software.
  • Be vigilant: Review bank and credit card statements for irregularities, be cautious when handling unsolicited or unexpected emails and be wary of online offers that seem too good to be true - they usually are.
  • Know who you work with: Familiarise yourself with policies from retailers and online services that may request your banking or personal information. As a best practice, visit the company's official website directly (as opposed to clicking on an emailed link) if you must share sensitive information.
