It’s October and that means more than just pumpkins, sweaters, and fall-flavored coffees – it means it’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month!
Now’s the perfect time to ensure your IT systems are secure as this month is all about bringing attention to digital security and empowering people to protect their personal data.
To prevent cybercrime, it’s crucial to know what to be on the lookout for and why.
- Secure passwords: Don’t get caught using the same password for everything – that’s exactly what hackers are hoping for! Ensure your passwords are strong enough to combat attackers. Keep track of your passwords with password management tools that can help keep passwords safe, secure and all in one place.
- Click with caution: Don’t trust just any link! Since many cybercrimes happen by simply clicking a link, it’s always best to think before you click. With cybercrimes becoming more sophisticated daily, it’s crucial to know what you’re clicking on.
- Device security: Don’t keep putting off those update alerts! To ensure your systems are running smoothly, it’s important to ensure your system has the proper updates to work effectively. Be sure to turn on automatic updates to ensure your systems are up-to-date and running properly.
