Secure Yourself


How do you handle remote threats or malicious attacks from bad threat actors? 

  • Use a secure, reliable gateway, such as a reputable firewall or proxy, to protect you from outside threats.
  • Block all connections or communication from malicious sources.
  • Ensure that all of your security solutions are updated.
I’ve learned the hard way that the same security best practice can also be applied in real life.
  • Always look out for warning signs and never ignore them.
  • Trust no one, always verify.
  • Surround yourself with good people.
  • Avoid people of ill repute at all cost.
  • Use the principle of least privilege.
  • If all else fails and you go down, it’s always good to have a backup plan and recover from there.
