  • Patch Lady – are you safe online?

    Just spotted this…

    It’s a series of 30 minute webinars next week put on by a company that normally does security assessments for companies.  Their site walks you through a series of questions to review your personal computer risk.

    Some of the questions…… I never log into websites from links in emails. True or False? …. I never open a file attachment in an email unless I am specifically expecting one. True or False?

    So how secure are you?

    (edit:  I received a score of 812 – it was lowered because I have too many Windows devices (well duh), and I don’t encrypt all devices.  To be fair some of them are laptops I use for streaming needs and thus I don’t use them for sensitive tasks nor keep sensitive info on them)
