If you’ve been using a computer for any extended period of time, you probably don’t need to be reminded of the risks of treating your data with anything less than your complete attention. If you neglect it, you can be sure that soon enough you will see your computer start to behave in the weirdest ways. That’s usually when you realize your data has been compromised. The top 5 mistakes people make when securing their stuff are serious enough that you should be sure you aren’t making them.

Computer security is the one thing you should always spend enough time and money on in order to make sure your data is not compromised in any way. There have been many cases where people have brushed the dangers off only to find they have been hacked and lost both data and money. It’s not a pleasant feeling having someone poke around in your confidential information when you know your entire business is based on it. Maybe we all don’t make these top 5 mistakes, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be aware of them. All it takes is a moment when you’re not focused, and you can miss a vital security hole which is certain to turn a good day into a bad one.

Did you know that 61% of malicious websites are actually genuine websites that have been compromised? That means the website owner hasn’t spent enough time to patch the security holes present and thus allowed malicious code to enter the code structure. This is just one of the top 5 mistakes people make. The most common form of malicious code is injected through SQL injections and insufficient form security. When this happens, it can be a nightmare to try to find and clean out any code that might have found its way into your website.

Furthermore, you have to remember that it’s not always threats from the outside that are the culprits. You have to be aware of the internal threats as well. If you have a “rogue” employee that has access to sensitive information, you’d do good in keeping an eye on that employee in order to make sure he or she doesn’t leave the company with sensitive information or poke a hole in your web based security measures. That could lead to as big of a disaster as it would be if your data were compromised over the Internet. Have a look at these top 5 mistakes people make which leave them open to malicious attacks and remember them. You can never spend too much time making sure your stuff is safe. It’s just how it is.
