I hope the following tips will be helpful to keep us away from being victimized through cyber crime.... Avoid giving out any information about yourself in a chat room. Children should never arrange face-to-face meetings or send their photographs online without informing their parents. Use the latest anti-virus software, operating systems, Web browsers and email programs. Check out the site you are doing business with thoroughly. Send credit card information only to secure sites. Use a security program that gives you control over cookies that send information back to Web sites. Letting all cookies in without monitoring them could be risky. If you own a Web site, watch traffic and put host-based intrusion detection devices on your servers. Monitor activity and look for any irregularities. Put in a firewall and develop your content off line. Make sure web servers running your public site are physically separate and individually protected from your internal corporate network. Protect your databases. If your Web site serves up dynamic content from a database, consider putting that database behind a second interface on your firewall, with tighter access rules than the interface to your server. Back up your Web site after every update, so you can re-launch it immediately in case of a malicious defacement.
