    n an era where the internet plays a pivotal role in our daily lives,

    ensuring cybersecurity is more critical than ever. As we navigate

    through the digital landscape in 2024, the risks and threats continue to

    evolve. To safeguard your online presence and protect sensitive

    information, here are essential cybersecurity recommendations for

    browsing safely on the internet.

    1. Keep software and systems updated

    One of the fundamental aspects of cybersecurity is regularly updating your software and operating systems. Developers frequently release updates to patch vulnerabilities and enhance security. Ensure that your operating system, antivirus software, browsers, and other applications are up-to-date. Enable automatic updates when possible to stay protected against the latest cyber threats.

    2. Use strong and unique passwords

    Passwords are the first line of defense against unauthorized access. Create strong, complex passwords for your online accounts, combining uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters. Avoid using easily guessable information such as birthdays or names. Additionally, consider using a reputable password manager to generate and store unique passwords for each of your accounts.

    3. Enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

    Two factor authentication adds an extra layer of security by requiring a second form of verification, typically a code sent to your mobile device. Enable 2FA whenever possible, especially for critical accounts like email, banking, and social media. This additional step makes it significantly more challenging for unauthorized individuals to gain access to your accounts.

                  Top ways how AI makes the internet safer

                  Here are the top 9 ways how AI makes the internet much safer.

                  1.AI keeps learning with time and becomes better.

                  AI is smart already, and what makes it even better is that it learns with time. AI, when implemented, is based on machine learning and deep learning techniques. So, it uses the habits of your business network.

                  As AI learns about entities on your network, it easily detects whenever there is an outlier present on the network. Thus, the network and data can be secured before users exploit anything.

                  2.AI improves threat detection and response time.

                  If not detected at the right time, a threat can do huge damage to a business. So, detecting any bad actor on the network before it is too late is essential. While that is not possible manually, AI can do that very efficiently.

                  AI keeps on checking the whole system for any security threats, and whenever it finds a potential threat, it saves the system from any irreversible damage that your system may face.
