Use Strong Passwords
A strong password is one that cannot be easily guessed, or broken by a brute force attack in a reasonable amount of time. That means no words likely to be found in a dictionary, no common names, and nothing too short. A 15-character password may be 90 times harder to crack than a 14-character one.
Control Your Keys
Only you have your keys, and that’s the only way to decrypt your files. On your computer, with your password and key. You alone have access to and can manage your keys to all your most important files.
Erase Your Hard Drives
First you need to clean the data off your old drives so you don’t become a victim of identify theft. Simply deleting the data off your hard drive doesn’t actually delete it; it basically just hides it from immediate view. To truly hide the data on your storage device and protect yourself against identity theft, you need to take much more drastic (and time-consuming) measures that overwrite your drive space with ones and zeroes.
Use Security Cameras
Security cameras are used for two basic purposes: investigation and deterrence. The images that you collect with your security cameras will most often be used to review a crime or accident so that you can understand what really happened. But the cameras themselves also have a deterrent value since people who know they are being watched are usually on their best behavior.
