Personal Data Protection

Network security is one of the most important aspects to consider when working over the internet. Your privacy is of utmost importance.

How about you? Do you want to increase the level of security and data privacy on the web by encrypting all of your files on all of your devices? Check out Mozilla’s website to learn more about HTTPS and consider how you can help protect against spyware, hackers, and online scams.

To learn more, check out this post about Firefox being one of the first browsers to implement secure sockets layer (SSL) in all browsers, along with the EFF’s stance on browser crypto.

Protecting Your Health online

Our smartphones and computers are our primary connections to the internet. When we browse the web, we expose the personal information that comes with our identities to whatever other apps we install, whether it’s a chat application, dating app, or any other application that may offer a dangerous service.

Healthcare websites on the web include some of the most common healthcare information services on the internet. Not only can you expect to see a medical provider’s name, home address, and phone number, you can also expect to find information about your insurance and what services are included with each service.

There’s really not a lot you can do about websites like this, unless you’re savvy and plan ahead. Data centre interconnect is available if you need data from a region. We need to think about the types of information we leave to our devices, how we’re sharing our data, and how we can take care of ourselves before we become dependent on gadgets, so using the right security systems is important, to protect your computer and data, and you can find more information on how to do it in sites such as https://www.fortinet.com/resources/cyberglossary/sd-wan-explained.

What can you do to protect yourself?

First, ask yourself: What are my options for protecting myself?

Secure your connection to the internet in your browser using a VPN (Virtual Private Network).

Use a proxy server like WeQuit.Net. It blocks your ISP from determining your actual location, but even better, it prevents your ISP from knowing where your device is located as well.
