What is good cyber security hygiene?
Cyber hygiene is compared to personal hygiene.
Much like, an individual engages in certain personal hygiene practices to maintain good health and well-being, cyber hygiene practices can keep data safe and well-protected. In turn, this aids in maintaining properly functioning devices by protecting them from outside attacks, such as malware, which can hinder the functionality and performance of the devices. Cyber hygiene relates to the practices and precautions users take intending to keep sensitive data organized, safe, and secure from theft and outside attacks.
