October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Each week we will highlight resources and tips for this year’s message…Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT. The goal is to promote personal accountability and proactive behavior.
We are continuously connected through our Internet based devices. Although this presents us with great opportunities and resources it also opens us up to cyber risks and threats. We need to own our presence online by following security best practices to secure our devices and apps. Check your privacy settings and don’t disclose too much personal information.
We will examine ways that you can ‘lock down your login’. Using strong passphrases and multi factor authentication can assist with securing your information. Do you know how to shop online securely? Can you spot a ‘phish?’
Connecting securely to the Internet means keeping apps and devices up to date. We’ll look at Wi-Fi safety and protecting consumer data and information.
