SE­CUR­ING EMAILS AND CLOUD STOR­AGE

Distinguished Magazine - - CYBERSECURITY -

It’s not for noth­ing that cre­at­ing a strong pass­word for emails is manda­tory for all. Though en­cryp­tion is used by most email providers, it is not im­pos­si­ble to hack them. Hence cre­at­ing a strong pass­word is strictly ad­vis­able which di­min­ishes the pos­si­bil­i­ties of get­ting hacked. Also, there are a num­ber of email providers which are pri­vacy-ori­ented, like Pro­ton Mail.

As the use of cloud stor­age is in­creas­ing with ev­ery pass­ing day, it has to be kept in mind that they can also be eas­ily hacked. In or­der to pre­vent that, users can use au­to­mat­i­cally en­crypted cloud stor­age ser­vices, which en­crypts all the files kept in them. Also, one can man­u­ally en­crypt their files with the help of tools or soft­ware be­fore up­load­ing them on cloud.
