Cyber Security Tips


Cyber Security Tips

  • Change your password on a regular basis, and use the same complex password guidelines you use at work.
  • Get in the habit to change your passwords on your personal accounts when you are required to change your passwords at work.
  • Always enable a passcode on your mobile devices.
  • Don't use the same user ids and passwords on all your e-banking and/or favorite shopping sites.
  • Consider using a separate email account for electronic banking business - separate from the one you use for general emailing, internet inquiries, social media, and shopping.
  • Limit the amount of personal information you post on social media.
  • Be sure to have some form of anti-virus protection on your computer.
  • Keep your operating software and anti-virus up to date to take advantage of the most recent updates which address known vulnerabilities.
  • Pay close attention to website URLs. For instance, fraudsters often use common misspellings or may change the URL extension from .com to .net to redirect you to a fraudulent site.
  • If you have a laptop consider investing in an anti-theft software and/or encryption software.
  • Always be cautious of any downloads and hyperlinks - know where you are going.
