  • Using outdated software, such as Windows 7 and Office 2010
  • Not applying regular security updates to modern software, such as Windows 10 and 11
  • Not using virus protection
  • Using old and outdated IT equipment
  • Using simple, easy to guess passwords
  • Not using a password manager to generate long random passwords, and remember them
  • Not using other security basics such as multi-factor authentication, where you generate a login code on another device
  • Using non-standard devices, such as smart TVs or other gadgets, on the company network
