Cyber Security Tips & Reminders

Anti-Virus Software

Cyber security
  • Keep your software current by having the latest security software, web browser, and operating system in place. This will help decrease the chance of a virus, malware or any other online threats.
  • Set up automatic software updates on all of your devices. (Computers, Smart phones or any other web-enabled device)

Passwords

  • Your password should be long and strong and contain at least 3 of the following: upper-case letter, lower-case letter, number, and symbol. Longer passwords are more secure than shorter ones because there are more characters to guess.
  • Do not share your password.
  • Choose a strong password that is unique to your life and not something that can be easily guessed.
  • Avoid using words that can be found in the dictionary, and consider using paraphrases. (Example: This passwd is 4 my Email)
  • Use a different password for each online account.
  • Change your password several times a year.
  • Protect your password. If you write it down do not leave it out in the open, make sure it’s in a secure location.

Cyber Security Questions

  • Do not share the answers to your security questions.
  • Choose strong questions that are unique to your life and not questions that can be easily answered.
  • Change your security questions several times a year.
