Ask an MVP about: Home PC Security

Quote:
Corrine Chorney is a Microsoft Consumer Security MVP and I asked her to answer a few questions about the state of home PC security. You can see her complete MVP profile here and you can scroll to the end of this article for more information about her website as well as her social networking links.

Q. What changes have you seen on the home PC security front over the years?

A. The primary change I see with the people I have contact with in the forums, on Twitter and Facebook is the awareness of the necessity for an up-to-date antivirus software program and a software firewall. That was not the case as recently as five years ago. Another positive point is that, in most of the logs I analyze, it shows that people are also much better at installing Microsoft security updates. That said, there are an ever-increasing number of PCs in homes today, with at least one or two being laptops. This suggests the need to continue knowledge sharing on properly securing a home network.

Thank you.

The topic was so popular, James said that things are in the works for another installment -- although not on security.
