Hacking has turned into a very common act nowadays. My child is just 13 years old. Even he knows how to hack the computer. I think we should be really careful when we take our system somewhere outside. Last day one of my colleague's system was hacked. All the data in it was removed. Now I am tensed. I am planning to install a hack-proof security system. Recently I went through an article that speaks on how to make your wireless security systems hackproof
http://cspalarms.ca/blog/wireless-security-systems/how-to-make-your-wireless-security-system-hack-proof/
It advises one to change the password very often and to ensure encrypted signal for a wireless security system.Will it be useful? What are all the factors to be noted while installing a hack-proof security system? Do you have any tips? Has it got any drawbacks? Has anyone experienced using them? Please share your valuable suggestion.
Thanks in advance

One way to totally secure your computer would be to turn it off, stick it in a safe, encase the safe in concrete and then dump the whole thing into the deepest ocean. ;)

Yes, you should secure your WiFi. Using unencrypted WiFi is dangerous.

Nothing is ever hacker proof. Best you can do is make it tough and even annoying to gain access to your systems.

maybe we should have a sticky thread "Prevention from hacking" and in it simply have a line that says "Nothing is safe, nothing can be guaranteed to be 100% hack proof.....the end."

And like the FBI Director said today...."There is no such thing as absolute privacy in America."
