Sure, why not?

I tend to agree with another person who has responded that it is quite
easy to get too paranoid. I was trying to get that way for a while
then backed off. Doing backups of critical data and checking for
unsavory activity once in a while seems to work fine for me. I don't
think I'm doing anything that makes me a particularly better target
than anyone else, fortunately.
