With data-breaches almost continually in the news, it seems a good time to describe some simple steps you can take to help keep your data as safe as possible. While we at RSpace take a great deal of time and effort to keep data safe on the server, you can also make a big contribution to minimizing risk.
This is the easiest and most effective way to improve your security and is your main line of defence against adversaries that may wish to capture your data or impersonate you. There are many excellent advisory pages on the web about this; here are a few pointers.
RSpace requires modern browsers to work in, but it is always a good idea to use the latest version which will contain the latest security fixes and use up-to-date best practices in client-server communication. This is easier than ever now as most browsers detect when updates are available and prompt you to do so.
This is pretty standard advice, but if you’re using a public computer, always log out of RSpace when you’ve finished working and close the browser.
Here at RSpace we have no idea what are your passwords, and we don’t want to know! We will never contact you to ask for your password. If you do get any suspicious e-mails requesting information, please don’t reply, and forward them to us.
Thanks for reading – taking a few minutes to follow these guidelines will help protect your data in RSpace.
