Don't just turn off your antivirus program because you believe it hinders the performance of your system or device. It is doing its job by preventing malicious files/software from being installed.
It is important to frequently back up your data. If there is a lesson to be learned from ransomware attacks, backing up all of your data onto an offline server can help recover lost files and save you money.
Too many privileged users with access to sensitive data can be a recipe for disaster. Instead, use the Principle of Least Privilege: assign each new account the fewest privileges possible and only escalate privileges as necessary.
Cyberspace is always changing, so keep on top of cybersecurity issues with continuous education and awareness.
