Time for your Security New Year's Resolution!

It's not too late to make a New Year's Resolution to keep you Cyber-Safe in 2022.

WeLiveSecurity outlines ten bad habits to improve your cybersecurity this year. They include:

  1. Updating your software regularly by using the automatic update functionality
  2. Update your passwords, so they're strong and unique. Also, switch on the 2FA (two-factor authentication) if offered.
  3. Avoid using public Wi-Fi; if you need to use them, don't connect to any essential accounts.
  4. Think before you click! Does that ad look "phishy"? It may be a phishing scheme.
  5. Use security measures across all of your devices.
  6. Use secure websites.
  7. Avoid using personal devices for work purposes.
  8. Receive a call you don't recognize? Avoid giving out details over the phone that only you would know.
  9. Back up your data!
  10. Protect your smart home.

Review these good tips and make a plan to keep your information protected throughout the year!
