There are many benefits to being a freelancer. But, as a mobile worker, you likely have volumes of client data on your computer, and that information is attractive to cybercriminals.
As a freelancer, you might be targeted by online criminals, so you have to take precautions to avoid a costly data breach.
Freelancers do most of their work online, creating and compiling data. They may not realise that they are a primary target of hackers because they assume they are a tiny entity.
Hackers can use almost any piece of personal information they obtain to harm the owner. For example, social security and credit card numbers can be used for fraudulent purchases and for taking out home loans. Even email addresses can be used for phishing messages to steal data from others.
Freelancers often work in public spaces like coffee shops and libraries.
Ensure to validate new clients. Ask for an upfront payment or do a background check.
It's vital to implement standard security methods so you don't fall for commons scams.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
