What’s the best way to defend yourself from online attackers?
A new article offers suggestions for different kinds of protection that are tailored to the types of attacks you’re likely to face.
The article from ThreatConnect, a threat intelligence company, offers a number of different tips for how to protect against attacks that may come from your online activities.
For example, the article suggests the following: Using VPNs to hide your identity If you are the target of an attack and you have set up a VPN account with a VPN provider that you trust, you can hide your IP address and other identifying information from your ISP, while still being able to access your internet connection.
For instance, you might set up an encrypted connection that uses a public-key encryption protocol, which is used to encrypt your traffic.
This will help your ISP identify the traffic being sent to your computer.
