If a burglar breaks into your house, will she find your valuables lying around in plain sight? Or have you hidden them away safely? By the same token, even though your security suite or antivirus really should fend off data-stealing Trojans, protecting your personal data on the chance one might get through is just common sense. Having your data locked down will also help if that burglar makes off with your laptop.
When you need to dispose of papers that contain private information, you don't toss them in the recycling bin with the newspapers. Rather, you put them through the shredder. When deleting sensitive files, you should likewise avoid Windows's Recycle Bin.
A data-stealing Trojan will grab what it can get easily. Unless you're the target of a personally directed hack attack, you can figure that even simple encryption will defeat the Trojan. Got a sensitive file you need to keep, rather than shred? At the very least, copy it into an encrypted ZIP file and then shred the original.
PCs break down, laptops get stolen, files get lost. A backup copy is the ultimate security for your data, but if you keep the backup with the computer a single disaster can take out both at once. A hosted online backup service encrypts your data and keeps it in a safe location far, far away.

The revelation comes two days after the US government tentatively withdrew its demands that Apple write code and assist the authorities to unlock a seized iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino County shooters. The FBI told a federal judge that an "outside party demonstrated to the FBI a possible method for unlocking (Syed) Farook's iPhone." A federal magistrate then tentatively stayed her order demanding that Apple assist the authorities in unlocking the phone.
That same day, according to public records, the FBI committed to a $15 278 "action obligation" with Cellebrite. An "action obligation" is the lowest amount the government has agreed to pay. No other details of the contract were available, and the Justice Department declined comment. Cellebrite, however, has reportedly assisted US authorities in accessing an iPhone.
For now, US-based security experts believe that Cellebrite does have the wherewithal to perform the task.
"I'm really not at liberty to confirm the third party, but based on the techniques I've described in my blog on the subject, I think Cellebrite, as well as many large forensics firms like it, have the capability to perform such tasks," forensic scientist Jonathan Zdziarski told Ars in an e-mail. "DriveSavers, for example, has released statements yesterday suggesting they're almost there. I think the techniques are pretty straight forward for firms like these now that the tech community has had a chance to comment."
