Are You CyberSecure?

Here are a few tips to help you and/or your organization in an effort to prevent a breach:

  •  Email Fraud
    • If it seems to good to be true, it is probably fraud.  Don’t believe the lottery awards staff or princes from a foreign country will contact you by mail.
  • Fraudulent Payments
    • Be on guard against fraudulent checks, cashier’s checks, money orders or electronic fund transfers sent with a request for you to wire back part of the money.
  • Unsolicited Offers
    • Be wary of unsolicited offers that require you to ‘ACT FAST’.
  • Stay Up-To-Date
    • Make sure your device (computer/phone) is up-to-date with the latest security updates for its respective operating system (Windows, Apple IOS, mobile phone IOS (Apple, Android, etc.).
  • Warning and Errors
    • Do not trust websites with certificate warnings or errors
  • Beware of Email Attachments
    • It’s never a good idea to click on an email attachment or free software from unknown sources; you could end up exposing your system to online fraud and theft.
  • Sharing Online
    • Watch how much your share online.  The more you post about yourself on social networking sites, the easier it may be for someone to use that information to access your accounts, steal your identity and more.  Protect your personal information by maximizing your privacy settings.
  • Financial Scams
    • Be aware of disaster-related financial scams.  Unfortunately, con artists take advantage of people after catastrophic events by claiming be from legitimate charitable organizations when, in fact, they are attempting to steal money or valuable personal information.
