1. Enable two-factor authentication: Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security by requiring users to provide two forms of identification, such as a password and a one-time code sent to the user’s device or email address, before being able to access their account.
2. Enable encryption: Encryption of data and communications is an important security measure and Windows 11 provides several options for both full-disk and file/folder level encryption.
3. Restrict user permission and control access rights: Restricting user permission and setting appropriate access rights on files, folders and devices are important steps to secure your system. Windows 11 includes built-in features to help you manage user rights.
4. Disable unnecessary services: Unnecessary services can expose your system to potential vulnerabilities, so it is important to disable them when not in use. Windows 11 includes a feature called Service Hardening, which allows you to restrict only the services that are necessary for your system to operate.
5. Use a strong firewall: A firewall can provide an additional layer of protection against malicious networks and other threats. Windows 11 comes with Windows Firewall, which provides basic security protection from external threats.
6. Install a reliable anti-virus program: Installing a good anti-virus program is essential to protect your system from malicious software. Windows 11 comes with Windows Defender, which is a free anti-virus program that provides basic security protection.
