I think isolating our computer from cyber world is not wise solution to avoid our computer from being attack by viruses or hackers. In this era, internet is one of vital needed. Internet is like a double-edged knife. One side provides various facilities and benefits while on the other hand provide various kinds of bad things. The most important thing is understand about it. Protect our computer using anti virus software and firewall is must if we want to surf in the internet safely. Keep up to date with the newest viruses database is absolutely needed if we regularly connected with internet. Always keep an eye on suspicious and unknown email will reduce the possibility from being attack. Stay away from unsafe site by installing secure browser. The last, always backup your data and never save password in computer which connected with Internet.

That sounds nice. but a primary tool in nearly all businesses is email. For that, you need Internet access. Nothing is totally safe.
