6 New Year's Tech Resolutions Everyone Should Make in 2020 and How To Keep Them

Happy New Year everyone! With the new year, I'm sure you want to make positive changes in your life. With resolutions, we always tend to focus on improving our relationships, finances, and health. With technology playing a big role in our lives, you need to consider changes to your digital life as well. The good news is that you don't have to be a technology expert to resolve to get better with the tech in your life. Not sure where to start? Well, I've put together a list of tech resolutions that will help you get more from the technology you use at home and work.

1. Get Serious About Cyber Security. Cybercrime was huge in 2019 and it's only going to get worse in 2020. First, understand that all of your devices have the protection you need against threats on the internet. As long as you keep your devices up to date, you are protected. Most of the scams and viruses require user interaction in order to cause problems, so be cautious of web sites you visit and emails that show up in your inbox. If your information was leaked in a data breach, make sure you take action immediately, by changing your passwords for your online accounts. If you don't, your accounts can become susceptible to 'credential stuffing' which is where criminals use your information leaked in data breaches to take over your online accounts.
