Are you secure?
October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month
October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). Since its inception under leadership from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance, NCSAM has grown exponentially, reaching consumers, small and medium-sized businesses, corporations, educational institutions and young people across the nation.
By raising awareness and understanding of basic cybersecurity practices, we can all work together to combat cyberthreats.
You have a role to play in ensuring the security of your personal and professional data. Use the tips below to safeguard your computer:
- Keep all software on internet-connected devices – including PCs, tablets and smartphones – up to date to reduce risk of infection from malware.
- Create long passwords that only you will remember, and change them every six months. Remember, a strong password is at least 12 characters long.
- Avoid the use of thumb drives and other portable memory devices.
- Don’t click on weblinks or attached files in emails when you’re not certain of who the sender is.
