In the era of the cyber world, computers have become an essential part of our daily life. The computers revolutionized our way of communication and made problem-solving easier and faster. But along with the increase in positive use of computers, the negative side of it flourished as well. Hackers and cyber criminals became more prominent, and it is very important for us to keep all our data from getting hacked.

Let us check out the different ways in which we can protect our computers from hackers.

Keeping the Operating System up to date
Keep the Operating System up to date. Hackers use the vulnerabilities present in the older versions to extract our data. To prevent such cases, Microsoft uploads smaller Windows update every Tuesday and more massive Windows update once/twice a year which keeps the windows in-built security features updated.

Installing an Antivirus Package
Installing an Antivirus package is very important to protect our computers from all sorts of hackers and malware. There a lot of powerful antivirus packages available in the market like Avast, Quick Heal, Bitdefender, etc. You should perform regular scanning of your computer and keep the antivirus package up to date to ensure overall protection.

Installing an Anti-Spyware Package
Spyware is a type of software which stealthily collects the user's data and then redirect the same to third parties. Anti-Spyware system ensures real-time protection against spyware to protect the user’s data from being extracted illegally.

Keeping a Back-up of all your data
It may happen that instead of all the protection, some advanced hackers are successful in hacking our computers. For such extreme cases, we should always back up our data using cloud storage or using an external storage device.

Activating Firewall
A firewall is computer software which creates a wall between our data and the external world. Almost all the computers have in-built Firewall to protect our data from attackers.
Moreover, you can also use a hardware firewall system like Cisco, Fortinet, etc. to improve the firewall protection.

Encryption
In cases where the hackers are successful in extracting your data, keeping your data encrypted can prevent them from accessing any of that.
You can use encryption systems like BitLocker, FileVault, etc. for encrypting critical data stored in flash drives and use VPN to encrypt web traffic.
