Security threats constantly change and evolve. We take extra precautions here at DPFT to
ensure that your information is kept safe and you should too! #BeCyberSmart during National Cybersecurity Awareness Month and beyond with these tips:
Own It. • Limit the personal information you share on social media and think carefully before accepting new friend requests. • Update privacy settings so your social networks are only accessible to people you know. • Download apps from reputable sources, review user agreements and delete apps you don’t use.
Secure It. • Create strong, unique passphrases. • Use multifactor authentication like text and email notifications or biometric identification. • Stop and think before clicking links or opening attachments in emails, instant messages and online posts. • Shop safely online. Before entering personal information, be sure the company is reputable and encrypts your information. Be alert for auction scams and too-good-to-be-true offers.
Protect It. • Update your devices with the latest security software, web browser and operating systems. • Avoid using public computers and Wi-Fi networks for private or financial matters.
