The internet has become an essential part of our everyday lives, but using it doesn’t come without risk. We share more of our personal data online than ever before, and your information could be compromised.
That’s why it’s more important than ever to understand what kind of cyber threats are out there, and how to protect yourself against them.
Our computers, phones, and tablets are useful devices that can help us connect, but they often contain personal information. That personal information could be compromised if our devices are vulnerable to cyber threats. The best and easiest way to protect yourself? Update your software regularly.
Phishing is a common tactic cyber criminals use to trick you into sending money or giving up sensitive information. Phishing messages are typically sent by email or text (also known as smishing ).
Devices and accounts are important tools that help us stay connected. But they also contain a lot of personal information that you don’t want to fall into the wrong hands. So how do you ensure your private information stays private? Go beyond just a password by enabling multi-factor authentication , which requires additional verification (like a PIN or fingerprint) to access your devices or accounts.
