Cyber Preparedness

 

Emergency Preparedness doesn't just include floods, tornadoes, or winter storms, you also need to protect yourself and your family from cyber crimes. Below are some tips that you should keep in mind when using the internet and email.

 

DO:

  • Connect to the Internet over secure, password- protected networks.
  • Limit who you share information with by reviewing the privacy settings on your social media accounts.
  • Trust your gut; if you think an offer is too good to be true, then it probably is.

 

DO NOT:

  • Click on links or pop-ups, open attachments, or respond to emails from strangers.
  • Respond to requests for Personally Identifiable Information (PII); most organizations—including banks, universities, and companies—do not ask for your personal information over the Internet.
  • Use the same password twice; choose a password that means something to you and you only, and change your passwords on a regular basis.
