October 29, 2019
For our last National Cybersecurity Awareness Month blog post, we're sharing our top takeaways from this year.
We'll start with the 2019 theme for National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, “OWN IT. SECURE IT. PROTECT IT." A pretty simple reminder that your online security depends on your own actions. It is crucial to your own safety that you take proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity at home and in the workplace. We can't stress this enough.
Another important takeaway is understanding your digital profile. You must understand the devices and apps that you use every day if you want to keep your information safe and secure.
Next is secure your digital profile. Change your passwords regularly, set up Multi-Factor Authentication to better protect your personal information, and know where your personal information is going when you purchase items online.
Lastly, you must maintain your digital profile. To protect yourself from becoming a cybercrime victim you must understand, secure, and maintain your digital profile. Be familiar with and routinely check privacy settings to help protect your privacy and limit cybercrimes.
