MessageLabs, a web security company, now part of Symantec [link] recently released a good whitepaper looking at the Top 5 Security Tips for 2009.  

The whitepaper primarily targets IT professionals, however, it’s worth applying the information to your home or business computer.  One note, to access the paper you have to fill out an online form before you can download it for free.

Taking proactive steps to protect your computer and network, should be a central part of your business continuity planning.  Back in 2006, Sheldon Eveloff, a now retired partner from Amper, Politziner & Mattia, wrote a guest spotlight for us discussing this very topic. 

What steps does your company take to ensure network and data security?  How have you been able to combat threats to your system?  What advice do you have pass along to those looking to secure their systems?
