Our final week of IT Security focuses on Safe browsing and how to avoid viruses when using the internet.
In order to keep safe when browsing, be careful what cookies you accept and also use a pop up blocker. Pop up blockers are designed to improve your web experience and protect you from the nuisance of constant ads.
To further secure yourself, you can enable two-factor authentication which is often offered on popular websites such as Facebook and Amazon.

This week’s focus is on the need to back up your data. Backing up data allows you to recover faster if your data is accidentally deleted or becomes corrupt.
Backing up data refers to having a copy of your data stored in another location. It also has the benefit of allowing you to access your data from different locations.
During your time at Loughborough University, you have access to a free Microsoft OneDrive account.
