Web and Security from Tips Galore will feature contents with a focus on security. With recent demands for Compliance and Data protection, with menaces from viruses and unknown cyber attacks,

knowing what is out there and how it works and what you can do to secure your data, website or blog is of the utmost importance.

While being a 100% secure is impossible, there are steps you can take, with knowledge from the information that you get here, to secure your good works from being ruined. When you put in so much time and effort to build something, seeing it go down due some security issues is heart-rending.

Should you be worried? of course, you should! But this is part of the reality of the web as it is right now. And so having enough information and knowledge is essential. Here at Tips Galore, you may find just that.
