Being the new normal, many of us are working from home. Unfortunately in the rush to set up our home offices, security and protection often get overlooked. The current situation has cyber-attacks on the rise which poses the risk of stolen identity, passwords, and personal information.
Recently Dell Technologies released a utility that protects the vital part of a computer system, the BIOS. The utility, called Dell SafeBIOS, relies on behavior-based threat detection to spot imminent attacks and provides a visual analysis of BIOS alterations before and during threats. System administrators can then isolate the targeted device and deploy countermeasures. Dell SafeBIOS is available for download at the Dell web site.
Some common sense things you can do to help protect yourself is keeping your anti-virus up-to-date, download the most recent security updates for your router, and your operating system.
