computer securityToday marks the annual National Computer Security Day. This day provides businesses and households a reminder to change passwords, check their computer settings, delete unnecessary files, and confirm the overall security of their various technologies and devices. With millions of households effected by viruses last year and billions in lost finances, use this day as an opportunity to protect yourself and your company.

Google seems to be going with the trend of the month too, security. The search engine giant recently announced a feature to assist webmasters in recovering from website hacks. In some cases you may already be aware of a malicious file and Google can help you troubleshoot it. However, the tool is well enough equipped to understand malicious files that it may notify you of problems that you didn’t even know existed.
