Being mindful and informed of cybercriminals is the best method of preventing an attack. Arming yourself with knowledge about deterring a cybercriminal and their practice benefits your online health for the future to come. We’ve compiled a checklist to see if you are following the correct protocols.

Are you:

Communicating important data with those only allowed to receive it?

Destroying or securing sensitive documents when they are no longer necessary?

Encrypting files that contain authorization information or safety protocols?

Keeping up to date with the most current information in cybersecurity?

Finally, the most integral aspect of cybersecurity – do you think before you click?

Anybody could create emails, landing pages, or websites that look real – yet gather your information as you input it into them. Are you checking links are for legitimate brands, or if any concerning attachments featuring malware?

It’s imperative to thoroughly read through your emails. You never know what may be lurking underneath the surface.
