How to Secure Web Browsing

The web browser is a complex piece of software. It can be used to display web pages, videos, images, forms, games and much more. The original purpose of the program was to display documents written in text, it currently handles all the different media that are accessible through the Internet. This makes it more challenging for security teams to secure because it is brimming with “weak points” that attackers could attack.

It is important to ensure that your security settings are set to the highest level possible, whether you are using the default software installed on your PC or an alternative browser you have downloaded. This will reduce the risk of malware getting through and settling into your system. It’s also an excellent idea to run the web browser in an account for users with limited access that doesn’t have administrator rights. This way, even if malware does get past your browser’s security settings it won’t be able to alter your system as easily.

It’s also a good idea for you to inform your users about safe web browsing practices and habits. You can help them disable auto-complete and to clear passwords often and always select the highest level security in the web browser. You should also remind users of the importance of websites that clearly state how their data will be utilized and stored. Usually, this information is found in the privacy policy or the agreement of the website. Browser security solutions remove blind spots by looking over and analyzing web sessions for threats and risks. These solutions are device agnostic that protect managed and unmanaged devices including BYOD and third party unmanaged devices.
