Many folks put sensitive data on their computers, cellphones and other devices. In fact, someone browsing through one of your devices might quickly find your bank account numbers, email passwords and your child’s Social Security number. This type of vulnerability is a tradeoff you may make for convenience, but there are ways to minimize the risks you open yourself up to. Of course, your device doesn’t have to be borrowed, lost or stolen for sensitive data to be accessed. Hackers, whether they live down the street or on the other side of the world, know their stuff. They are continually learning and adapting. The good news is that you, too, have the ability to refine your data storage techniques and to keep the sensitive aspects of your life private from hackers.
