Why is security important?

We here at DCT often mention the need for you to be actively involved in your online security, whether it be email, computers, or mobile devices. We also go to great lengths to explain why security is important to you. It may seem like we’re beating you over the head with security at times, but we’re only looking out for your best interests.

While we have touched on the repercussions that are possible if your computer, smart phone, or other device is infected or otherwise compromised I stumbled across this infographic based on the works of Brian Krebs that explains it in an easy to understand manner that everyone should see!

This would be a wonderful opportunity for you to share something worthwhile with your Facebook friends and family members that could save them from monetary loss or identity theft.

David Hartsock

Executive Editor/Owner/Admin of Daves Computer Tips and all-around good guy - Dave's interest in computers began in the early 1980's during the Apple II era. In the early 1990's the PC began to replace proprietary and mainframe devices in Dave's industry so he began to learn and experiment with the PC. Through DOS, Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and now Windows 10. Dave became the "go to" guy for friends, family, and coworkers with computer problems. Daves Computer Tips was born in 2006 in an effort to share these experiences with others in an easy to understand, plain English, form.
