October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Created by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance, Cyber Security Awareness Month serves to bring awareness to the increasing risk of your personal data being hacked online.

 

Living in an ever-changing digital world, it is crucial you take steps to guard your personal information online. Here are some tips for increasing your cyber security:

  • Be cautious about what you click on
  • Avoid sending or storing personal information on your cell phone, tablet, laptop, and computer
  • Do not use untrustworthy public wireless hot-spots
  • Never leave your devices unattended
  • Update your computer software with the latest security
  • Avoid suspicious emails and phone calls
