There might be a thread about this subject out there but couldn't quickly find it. Lately I've been wondering about cyber security/computer security and how to go about it in a smart way. I have a desk top, laptop and now a smart phone and I'm not an expert on how to go about securing them. One problem might be that I rely on freeware programs such as Avast and Malwarebytes but I've now read that they might not be sufficient by themselves. Some people advocate certain anti-virus softwares, some do full regular re-installs of the system and keep their stuff on separate storage devices. Regular re-installs might be quite a hassle with all the updates etc. but it might be the best way to go about it. There's probably a lot of stuff about network security etc. that I have absolutely no clue about. How do you guys go about securing your stuff, got any tips for a relative IT-noob?
