Cybersecurity Awareness Month: Online Safety Tips

At L&P, we strive to promote good cyber practices within our company and want to recognize Cybersecurity Awareness Month, which is celebrated every October. With cyber threats and crimes becoming more common, it’s more important than ever to know how we can help protect ourselves from them. In honor of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) shared four actions we can take to be safer online:

  • Create strong passwords. For each account you have, use a unique password. Ensure passwords are long and complex.
  • Keep software up to date. When updates become available for your devices, web browsers, and applications, update them as soon as possible. Consider enabling automatic updates, if possible.
  • Think before you click. Cyber criminals may send you malicious links and attachments with the goal of installing malware or stealing login credentials.
  • Use two-factor authentication. Two-factor authentication adds another layer of security to your accounts by requiring an additional verification step when signing into them.
