Six easy tips for securing your Windows 8 device
(BPT) - It’s no coincidence that Microsoft chose to launch Windows 8 in late October – just weeks before Black Friday and the holiday shopping season. Nearly 60 percent of shoppers intend to hit stores in December, when dozens of new PCs, laptops and tablets loaded with Windows 8 will be available.

“When consumers rush to adopt the latest high-tech gadget, security is often an afterthought. It’s important to secure your device to protect your investment as well as your personal data,” says Marian Merritt, Internet safety advocate with Norton by Symantec.
