October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM)! Help spread cybersecurity awareness and encourage everyone to own their role in protecting Internet-connected devices.

What can you do to help?

  • Keep software up to date
  • Consider what personal information you share online
  • Use multi-factor authentication when offered
  • Set long, different passwords with multiple types of characters for each account
  • Use a password manager to help you remember complicated passwords
  • Avoid using free, unsecured wi-fi, especially for sensitive activities like banking
  • Always assume someone has seen your posts, even if you delete them (act like there is no delete button)
