There are many ways to configure each of the programs that you use every day. Your email applications, Internet browser, and more advanced programs such as IIS and SQL, all contain security settings that aid you in establishing a level of protection that you can be comfortable with.
Many programs need "tweaking" to be safe from malicious code writers and hackers who surreptitiously attempt to infect your system.
Learning the proper configuration for your systems is the first step to ensuring a safer cyber space.
Many hardware devices also have security settings that the user can configure. Even common household computer devices have security settings that can be critical to ensuring your safety and privacy on the Internet.
Many of these devices ship with the lowest level of security in place, so leaving the settings at the factory-set level could leave your system vulnerable.
