A New Year Means New Security & a Google Nexus 7-Inch Multi-Tablet Twitter Party Giveaway with Trend Micro – #SecureNewYear


I am hoping that this New Year is already off to a great start for all of you, apart from my plumbing issues and a flu-ridden child, our family has been enjoying 2013 thus far. And as most of the celebrations should have died down by now, here’s one more that you might want to attend.

For the past year, I and several other families across the country have been participating in a program with Trend Micro, a leading global internet content management and threat security firm, called the Digital Joneses. During this year, we completed various security challenges and awareness programs where we learned new ways to protect our family’s technological assets and then shared our knowledge with our readers, friends, family and co-workers via regular articles. This past month, I wrapped the highlights of the program up in my post “13 Security Resolutions for 2013 – Follow Them or Get Hacked!” You can see my other posts from the program here.

Getting Secure for the New Year

Ok, back to me and my voice now. It’s important to understand and utilize security on your mobile devices and computers. And, since many people get gadgets and devices during the holidays, sometimes the security aspect is overlooked. I hope that you will spend some time reading through some of my suggestions and recommendations and will implement them in the coming year with both your new and old gadgets.
