This is the second post in a multi-part series on computer security essentials. I am not a computer security expert but there’s some basic computer security essentials that a surprising number of people don’t understand. The aim of this series is to raise awareness of these. I will be covering password vaults, two factor authentication, devices and local encryption.
As mentioned in my last post on passwords, it’s important to use a different password for every service you use and to have long and cryptic randomly generated passwords.
