Online Security for You and Your Family

Anything posted online can be gathered to gain more details about you and your family.”



Thanks to the Internet, we enjoy having rich, digital lives. Simple and complex tasks can be done with a click of a button. Information can be accessed within a few seconds. But this level of connectivity has also made it easy for cybercriminals to take advantage of us. This sobering fact is all the more highlighted by the threats raised during the National Cyber Security Awareness Month.

Cybercriminals often target users through their online activities. For example, they create phishing pages that look like banking sites because people bank online. Bad guys create spam and phishing emails to victimize email users.

Cybercriminals create these threats to steal your personal information. This is why you need to be careful with the amount of information you share online. Anything posted online can be gathered to gain more details about you and your family.

Protecting You, Your Family, and Your Devices

Safety means being mindful of several things. You should catalog every device your family owns so you know the types of threats you might encounter for each device. Also, always check the level of security a network offers before you or anyone else connects to it.
