Security, Malware and my Mac


From identity theft to ransomware, cybersecurity is in the news on a daily basis. Criminals targeting organizations and individuals alike, take advantage of the lack of security measures that are being taken to protect our digital systems. More and more we hear from clients concerned about what they can do to secure their computers and accounts to protect against malware, identity theft, and a variety of other threats.

Here are a few quick precautions you can take to immediately upgrade your Mac’s security:

  • Make sure you upgrade to the newest available version of OS X
  • Make sure your firewall is active
  • Install anti virus software
  • Fully encrypt your hard disk using the built in utility
