1/3 of people say they sometime, rarely, or never install software updates.
At the end of the day, protecting your data and devices from malicious actors is what cybersecurity is all about. To accomplish this, make sure your security software is current. Obviously, investing in the most up to date software, web browsers, and operating systems is one of the best defenses against a host of viruses, malware, and other online threats.
Don’t task employees with manually updating devices by making sure these devices have automatic updates turned on. Additionally, back up all data either in the cloud or via separate hard drive storage.
Watch for fakes!

These are always fake and should not be followed. Also, a browser will only warn you not to move forward or stay on a specific web address because it might not be secured, or it could contain malware.
