CyberHygiene For Beginners, Easy To follow Steps For Anyone | Reflexes To Get Used To

We are ALL responsible for the internet


Internet safety is the responsibility of EVERYONE! It isn’t actually THAT difficult to apply a healthy behavior on the internet to stay secure, one needs to have some reflexes, daily reflexes… Let us call them <===> CyberHygiene <===> as they are about care anyway.

WHAT do WE have to take care about!? Check below please:



  • Updates about our “Operating System” (OS)
  • Updates about so-called “Third Party Programs”
  • Back-up from our files and/or the whole Hard Disk
  • Installation of protection-software, anti-malware, anti-spyware tools included…
  • Protection of our privacy
  • Encryption
  • Secure Passwords

MOST of the above mentioned are automated tasks, SO NO way to NOT use THEM 😉 GET used to IT! GET the reflexes!

The PracTICE / How To Get The Right Reflexes To Stay Secure?


          • First of ALL, check my blog ===> Cyber-Security Practice: Learn it in one week <=== and follow ALL the steps.
          • Chose a day in the week where YOU control YOUR updates and YOUR computers & mobiles security! I suggest the Friday, as I created on Twitter the “Friday Security Check Day“, hashtag = #FSCD. Get used to it on any Friday, get THE reflex!
  • On any second Tuesday on each month Microsoft and Adobe publish new updates, install THEM! THEY are a MUST! It’s the Patch-Tuesday!
  • Introduce a pledge in YOUR family, where every family member MUST sign and accept it! It will give a Community feeling and RESPONSIBILITY!
