5 Security Resolutions for the New Year

Wired has put together a list of 5 totally achievable security resolutions for the new year. I'm not sure why they think basic security is "overwhelming," everything on the list is pretty much common sense.

The challenge of protecting yourself can feel so overwhelming that it’s tempting to give up on security altogether. There’s no disputing that adding more protection to your life does require some work and inconvenience. But emphasis is on some. Just like locking your bike instead of simply leaning it against a tree, taking digital security precautions is slightly annoying but very doable. So do it! The first step is to check off the really simple stuff that only takes a few minutes (do it for your relatives or a friend, too). Once you’ve got that baseline read on for the slightly more time-consuming stuff.
