Security

Security is a complex but very important area, which is often neglected. In worst-case scenarios, a single computer virus can shut down your entire system while it erases your hard drive. Perhaps the simplest way to think of security is to consider your computer as if it were your home and ensure that you take the necessary steps to protect it from intruders.

Your personal data may only comprise of a few documents and photos but think of all your on-line activities such as email, internet banking and shopping. By carrying out our intensive Computer Health Check, we can make sure your system is running all the necessary anti-virus software and that your Firewall is configured correctly.

Most new computers are supplied with basic anti-virus software on a 30-day free trial basis. It is important that you use this time to decide upon a security strategy that is appropriate to your needs. For example, if you are considering using a wireless connection, or are doing so already, your security requirements will be different as your computer is potentially more vulnerable to hackers.
