Protecting yourself and your business from becoming cybercrime victims
To protect yourself from becoming a cybercrime victim, you must understand, secure, and maintain your digital profile.
Your every click, share, send, and post creates a digital trail that cybercriminals can exploit. Limit public Wi-Fi use whenever possible and be familiar with and routinely check privacy settings to help protect your privacy and reduce cybercrimes.
Protecting yourself and your business using multi-factor authentication to secure your devices and accounts
Protect against cyber threats by learning about security features available on the equipment and software you use.
Cybercriminals are skilled at getting personal information from unsuspecting victims, and their methods are getting more sophisticated as technology evolves. You can apply additional layers of security to your devices and accounts—like multi-factor authentication (MFA)—to better protect your personal information. Where MFA is not an option, ensure your passwords are easy to remember and hard to guess, and use a different password for each account.
Understanding how you can protect yourself, your information, and our business from cybercriminals
Internet-based applications and devices are present in every aspect of our lives—at home, school, work, and on the go. Constant connection provides opportunities for innovation and modernization, but also presents opportunities for cybercriminals to steal your private information by exploiting you or purchasing stolen information from previous breaches for profit or leverage.
