Use Truecrypt for file/folder encryption. And if you have a mac the best way to secure your os drive enable filevault.

If you're willing and capable, buy an annual subscription to a cloud storage service.
This way you can upload important files when you don't have a local storage device but have an internet connection.
As for security, I agree with the recommendations here to archive the documents and protect them with a password.

another option is to keep your sensitive files in an external drive. encrypted, of course.

Secure important files. Zip and encypt.

 

7zip for zipping. Truecrypt for encyption.

 

And then move files to a USB drive or eternal HDD. Then if truly serious, put the USB/HDD in a fireproof box.

 

I disagree that the cloud is a good idea if security is the issue. As we all know, other people have hacked into the cloud. All they need is to guess your password, and all your sensitive files are compromised.

Secure your sensitive and important files using encryption. Do not use cloud services.

And the authors actually says to stop using it already and move to things like Bitlocker.  Chances are the encryption has already been cracked by sophisticated organizations (like the USA's NSA), but it is still "safe" (not a malware) to use.

User of truecrypt also. Mahirap yung mga online storage. Make sure you properly encrypt your files before uploading. Lalo na yung sensitive.

From a non-hacker, pretty much, unless your password is easy to guess.

I made my password hard to guess. I think it is easier that way but I'll try to explore the truecrypt and see if it is easy to use.

For information security, hindi pwede encryption lang.  O kaya'y back-up lang.  Information security is the preservation of confidentiality, integrity and availability.  

 

Confidentiality is making information accessible for authorized users only.

Integrity pertains to the reliability of information.

Availability is making sure information is available.

 

Yan dapat ang approach to complete information security.  Hindi pwedeng isang aspeto lang.
