Data security at ElliNet

What should I take into consideration relating to data security?
As a default, Windows operating systems have several unnecessary remote services and partitions. If you do not need these remote access features or partitions on ElliNet, it’s better to disable them.

Do not use empty or easy-to-guess passwords. A good password consists of at least eight characters and includes lower case and capital letters, as well as numbers and special characters. The password of the main user of the computer (administrator, root) must be particularly strong.

We recommend that you also use personal firewall software. Correctly configured, it prevents unauthorised access to and from your workstation (malware and spyware often try to send data from a workstation to the internet). Also use anti-virus software.
Update your operating system by downloading any security updates when they are published.
