Our world has become increasingly digital and increasingly interconnected. Keep yourself cyber safe and protect yourself from a cyber-attack. According to FEMA, cyberattacks can lead to loss of money, theft of personal information, and damage to your reputation and safety.
Keep software and operating systems up to-date.
Use strong passwords and two-factor authentication.
Watch for suspicious activity. This could be any message that asks you to complete a task immediately, offers something that seems too good to be true, or asks for personal information.
Use encrypted (secure) internet communications.
Have antivirus and firewall solutions to block malware and other threats.
Regularly back up your files in an encrypted file or encrypted file storage device.
Limit the personal information you share online. Change privacy settings and deactivate location features.
Protect your home network by changing the administrative and Wi-Fi passwords regularly.
