Cybersecurity Tips

Serious threats to personal data are at an all-time high. Now more than ever, we all need to remain diligent in protecting ourselves from hackers and privacy breaches. Scammers of all sorts bombard us through pop-ups, viruses, emails, phone calls, text messages and even the businesses we visit every day.

Here are some steps you can take to protect yourself.

Use strong passwords – and keep them secret!

  • Avoid dictionary words, common phrases, and personal information when creating passwords.
  • When using apps on your mobile device, use a different, secure password for them different from the one you use for your phone’s device lock.

Regularly monitor your accounts.

  • This not only includes your bank account, but all accounts like email, social media, delivery services, shopping, etc., that way you can spot and report fraud right away.

Verify who you are communicating with.

  • If someone contacts you via email, text message, phone call or even through social media and claims to work for your financial institution, creditor, or any company you've done business with, contact the company directly to be sure the person is actually a representative.
  • Remember, clicking unknown links can place your devices at risk. This includes strange friend requests, messages, and even innocent-looking videos.

Check your privacy settings.

  • When using social networks, use the privacy settings to regulate what you share and protect your personal information.

Always use a secure internet connection.

  • Websites using SSL (Secure Socket Layer encryption) always show a web address that starts with “https://” which indicates that you are on a secure site.
  • Never visit unfamiliar websites and beware of look-a-like links (especially in emails and text messages). These links will have a similar spelling or will end in .net versus .com and  could be an infected link just waiting to attack your computer.

Use other resources to stay safe.

  • Choose top rated antivirus or anti-malware software to protect devices. Malware is software or viruses designed to damage or disable computers or systems
  • Laptop owners can also install software to ensure the laptop can be tracked if stolen or remotely accessed to erase files or transfer files securely.

Scammers are always looking for new ways to con people out of their money. Do your part to protect yourself, stay alert and keep up on prevalent scams.
