Four Tips for Cybersecurity Awareness Month

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month—a time to remind ourselves of the importance of cybersecurity and to ensure we’re taking steps to protect ourselves from cyber threats.

To recognize this important topic, we want to share some cybersecurity tips with you:

  • Stay informed. Keep an eye out for news about online scams and tricks.
  • Be careful who you trust. Don’t give out personal information unless you’re sure you know who you’re communicating with.
  • Keep your devices updated. Make sure your computer, phone, and other devices have the latest security updates.
  • Protect your phone. Treat your phone like your wallet — don’t leave it unattended — and lock it when it’s not in use.
