As more remodelers use the Internet to speed up their businesses, the need for Internet security increases. Here are Internet safety tips from Mike Fast, CGR, president and CEO of MRF Construction.

  • Isolate your financial software with a firewall or other security program.

  • Keep your design programs on a machine that has only limited Internet access.

  • Do not open e-mail from strangers, and keep your e-mail address semiprivate.

  • Use search engines you trust and that you’ve verified.

  • Block any Web sites from taking "cookies" (identification information) from your computer.

  • Back up all your files, as a measure of common sense.
