Quick Wins. Tips #1. February 2022. Verify your BC-owned computer is backed up.

When a computer is not up-to-date with software updates, it is more vulnerable to ransomware attacks, malware, and data breaches. Updates for your operating system, browsers, antivirus program, and any other program you run on your computer help protect your devices (and your files) from the latest threats.

We recommend you set your operating system and software to update automatically to ensure the latest security vulnerabilities are addressed:

Enable auto-update for your devices:

**Restart regularly. Get into the habit of shutting down and restarting your computer and devices on a regular basis so that any updates can be installed at restart.

Enable auto-update for your apps/programs.
