Cyber Security Awareness Month

Cyber scams are nothing new. Every day, con artists are looking for ways to steal your personal information. Here are 4 simple things you can do to keep yourself cyber safe.

  1. Use strong passwords – Strong passwords are critical to protecting data. They are long, random, unique, and include all four-character types (uppercase, lowercase, numbers, and symbols).
  2. Turn on multifactor authentication (MFA) – You need more than a password to protect your online accounts and enabling MFA makes you significantly less likely to get hacked.
  3. Recognize & report phishing – Phishing emails, texts, and calls are the number one way data gets compromised. Be cautious of unsolicited emails, texts or calls asking for personal information.
  4. Update software – Ensuring your software is up to date is the best way to make sure you have the latest security patches and updates on your devices.
