For security, keep in mind a good firewall and antivirus are always important.

Keep your IRC client up-to-date. If using mIRC, always use the latest version.

Don't accept unsolicited or onjoin file requests.

Umm... yep, thats mostly it.


For privacy, i suppose a bouncer or proxy might work, and theres always TOR, though many networks block TOR.
