What is the best tool (hardware or software) to protect people who do lots of financail transactions online?
For people who trade stocks online, how do you protect your assets? I have heard of encryped hard drives and softwares to encrype your existing hard drives, but I think that's more like protecting data being stored into the drives. Since financial transactions involves sending and receiving data online, the encryption hardware and software don't really help, am I right? If yes, what are the right tool that we should use
I heard there are malicious software that record your key strokes, gather similar information and send it back to identity thieves. How can we protect ourselves?
Use a trojan search occasionally as well, there are several free online.
Use a firewall on your internet connection, either physically, with a router, or software, via windowsfirewall or other software.
If you have a wireless router, make sure you have WEP encryption or stronger turned on.
