The need to raise awareness for computer security is still obviously relevant. Therefore this holiday is still celebrated worldwide.

  • Check that you are not logged in to your computer under an admin account that makes it easy for malware to install without needing any confirmation.
    Using a user account ensures that no viruses can install without needing explicit confirmation. 
  • Change your password if it was quite a while ago that you last changed that password.
  • Use a strong password.
    Smart attacks don’t start at “A”. They start at “12345678” or “penis”, which obviously is NOT an original nor a safe password.
    So use protection on/with your password!


“As the world is increasingly interconnected,
everyone shares the responsibility of securing cyberspace.”
