October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Topics: Cyber Liability

As a partner for Stay Safe Online, we are providing weekly tips throughout October to help you protect yourself and the company from cybersecurity threats. Online safety is our shared responsibility.

Own your online presence

Set the privacy and security settings on websites to your comfort level. It’s OK to limit how and with whom you share information.

Personal information is like money. Value it. Protect it.

Information about you, such as purchase history or location, has value. Be thoughtful about who gets that information and how it’s collected by apps and websites.

Keep a clean machine

Keep all software on internet-connected devices – including PCs, smartphones and tablets – up-to-date to reduce risk of infection from malware.

Share with care

Think before posting about yourself and others online. Consider what a post reveals, who might see it and how it could be perceived now and in the future.
