Having your own Cloud is undoubtedly a great thing and we understand this. It’s the place you can store hoards of data without any one having access to sneak inside, but does that mean your data is not visible at all.
For all we know, hackers are smarter than you and gaining access to your Cloud is just another past time for them. They can harm your files and leak confidential content to your competitors. Therefore, keeping the Cloud safe against hackers is a must, no matter the expense.
Create Solid Backups for Everything
If your data gets hacked, you must understand two basic things. The hacker was smarter than you and you were too lazy to protect it. However, you can interrupt one possibility with a backup as a protection against the hackers by securing your data in multiple locations and if possible in different hard drives.
Password Protection - Use as Many Passwords as Possible to Barricade Every Point of Entry
I know you do protect your account and the details within with a secured password. However, passwords are like security gates, which can be passed by professional hackers. Therefore, you need to protect your data with different passwords with every single online account. Moreover, you can also protect the data in your accounts by using additional passwords to reduce the security risk of account hacking.
Use Two-Factor Authentication
This one is certainly an important security step that is offered by both Facebook and Google. With this step you can protect your data with a password and security question. It is quite similar to login approval with Facebook and is quite protective against unfamiliar authentications.
Avoid Linking Accounts Together
We all love sharing data on social networking sites, but this is one common mistake hackers exploits the most. Never link all your accounts together. Not only does it increase the chances of hacking your Cloud account, but also confines your social networking accounts which can result in loss of personal information and even collection of your bank account information.
