It's not only businesses and organizations that need to worry about protecting their data and legal information. Everyone from individuals to the cybersecurity departments of largest corporations needs to worry about safeguarding sensitive data. Here are five tips for protecting your legal information from hackers.


1. Know What Security Your Computing Programs Require


While there are some omnipresent cybersecurity tools, such as antivirus software and firewalls, there are also some computing programs and systems that require more specialized or powerful tools. Whenever you implement a new program or software solution or an upgrade, be sure to check what its recommended security coverage is and whether you need to add that coverage to your existing cybersecurity infrastructure. For example, cloud computing requires multiple levels of security and you can employ multiple features to achieve proper cloud security, including ransomware defenses, Deep Observability tools and network segmentation.


2. Utilize Strong Authentication


A good rule of thump for protecting your legal information and other sensitive data is to make sure you have the strongest authentication methods possible for every device and account you use. This means utilizing a different, strong password for each account and device, employing multifactor authentication and avoiding using any obvious personal information in your passwords and authentication methods.


3. Update All Cybersecurity Tools Often


It's important to regularly check for updates and patches to your cybersecurity tools and apply those updates and patches as soon as they become available or you become aware of them. It's an unfortunate reality that cybersecurity tools aren't infallible. Sometimes, software will have holes or flaws that can be exploited by cybercriminals and hackers. Even the most airtight security software needs to be updated regularly to continue to compete with hackers, who are constantly improving their skills and finding new ways to circumvent your security. If you ensure your tools have the latest updates, your protection will be far more effective.


4. Regularly Monitor Your Accounts


Most people have many online accounts that may or may not be connected to each other. You should keep an eye on each online account that belongs to you, particularly those that are in any way related to your finances or legal information. These accounts can include retirement funds, online banking, online tax filing, email accounts and ecommerce sites. You can manually monitor your accounts or use a monitoring service, but a combination of both is a good idea. The reason for monitoring these accounts is to check whether there is any strange activity occurring so you can catch it and deal with the cause as soon as possible.


5. Encrypt Your Connections


An incredibly effective method of protecting your entire connection to the internet, including legal and sensitive personal information, is to use an encryption method when connecting to wifi, such as a VPN. A VPN, which stands for Virtual Private Network, is an end-to-end encryption tunnel that keeps hackers and other cybercriminals out of your connection to unsecured wifi. You should use a VPN whenever you access public wifi, particularly public wifi that doesn't require you to submit a password. It's not as necessary to use a VPN when you're connecting to the internet via secured wifi, such as your corporate network or your private home wifi network, but it's a good idea to use it at all times.


There are many strategies and tools you can use to help keep your legal information and other sensitive data safe from cybercriminals. It's a good idea to use multiple tools to create layered security, but you should choose a few security features and strategies you feel comfortable using or ones that make the most sense for your needs.
