As Traders, you would never take a position without knowing what your stops are, so why would you take that same risk with your trading computer data?
Inherently, we are all risk takers to some degree. Successful Traders might be willing to risk more than most to achieve an optimal outcome. The security of your trader computer data isn’t something you want to gamble.

What is the best monitor configuration when it comes to your trading computer?
A simple answer might be that it’s personal preference. You might be surprised to learn there’s more to it. Would you believe that there is actually a science behind using multiple monitors?

Computers make it easy to multitask, or do a lot of things at once. That’s great, but the human brain can really only pay attention to one thing at a time. Lack of focus can hurt your trading. As a trader, your ability to focus is your number one skill. Being distracted by Facebook, CNBC, or even email can seriously hurt your ability to trade.
If you find that you are spending too much time dealing with your inbox, you are not alone.

If you operate a computer, you need a defense system. Having an anti-virus program is good start.  You can protect your trading computer against malicious software.
Your anti-virus system is only one line defense. A second defense is your gut instinct. Your gut instinct can protect you against direct phone call scams about your computer’s software. These scams are an attempt to gain access to your computer and personal info.

Computer hackers know two things to be true:
1)     Humans are predictable.
2)     Many traders like us don’t take computer security seriously.
Even though we know we shouldn’t, how many of us have used an anniversary date, or even a birth date as part of our password? To make matters worse, we use that same password for all our online credit card accounts. Hackers know this. They’re betting they can guess your password.

As traders, we depend on the fastest response times. We expect fast executions without slippage. Your trading software, your computer’s processor, and your internet speed all affect the execution of your trades. Even the most well-designed trading system can hit a bottleneck unless you ensure your network has speed and fluidity.
Obtaining ultra-fast Internet speeds is more than just calling your service provider and plugging in your computer.

Have you ever procrastinated about doing a task that was in your own best interest? Chances are creating a backup of your data is one of those tasks.
We know we’re supposed to, …we know we should,… but many of us don’t create backups. The risk is clear. A simple virus can wipe out hundreds of hours of work in a matter of seconds. How quickly we forget the last time an email from our friend took down our computer system and left us panicked. I know it can be a pain to backup your trading computer system, but you’ve got to do it.

The new trend in computers is to be small, thin, & light.
All these things come at a cost. The smaller a computer or laptop becomes, the more you have to sacrifice in capability to be micro-sized and power efficient.
A number of PC makers have been marketing all-in-one systems that stuff a small motherboard inside of a touch screen monitor in the hopes that a more pleasant aesthetic layout will push sales.

The Internet can still be the virtual “Wild West”. It can offer riches like the Gold Rush, and it can also be a vast lawless land of obscurity for bad guys.
On the Internet, the bad guys can hide in plain sight. Your Internet connection is one such hiding place.
Ninety percent of all U.S. households have some type of direct on-line access. This means we should all be concerned with protecting how our trading computers are connected.

It sounds like Big Brother but it appears to be a consequence of Big Advertising and some faulty software that no one was supposed to notice. Not only are the dates and times of the shows being watched being uploaded to a central server but they also manage to pull out the names of all the media stored on your private local network too. For some reason they felt the need to know the names of your personal photos as well even if you turned off the data reporting options on the TV.
