Common Sense

You don’t have to be obsessively conservative or paranoid to avoid a lot of problems and risks. Applying a little common sense will do, a my fellow CISSP, Martin McKeay points out in his blog entry:

Use common sense Anything that sounds too good to be true probably is. Don’t follow the link from an anonymous email promising quick riches or cheap products. Most of those are just attempts to get your money, and some are going to try and install software on your computer or get information from your computer.”

The post may be a few years old, but this advice, along with his other points, is current.
