Install up-to-date anti-virus software
Anti-virus software protects your computer against:
- Viruses infecting your computer.
- Trojan horse software gaining control of your computer system remotely, without your knowledge or consent.
Use a personal firewall
A personal firewall acts as a wall between your computer and the rest of the internet. It can be in the form of a hardware component, a software application or a combination of both. Firewalls stall malicious attacks and act as a filter for unwanted data entering your computer or private network.
Update your software regularly
To avoid any adverse effect on the software and web browser you are using, it is crucial to visit the websites of your operating system and web-browser vendors for software "patches" and "updates". Updates can be automatically made on your system if it is so configured.
It is highly recommended that your computer and internet connection be appropriately configured to ensure a secure internet banking session.

Regularly scan your computer for spyware

As a precautionary step, you should shut down your computer or internet connection when not in use.
