General IT Security Guidelines
Identity thieves are constantly trying new ways to compromise your devices and to steal your personal information. Phishing schemes have increased significantly and are getting more sophisticated. Users need to be extra vigilant when checking email or going online. The steps below can also help you stay more secure.
- Make sure you have the latest patches and antivirus updates on your computer and other mobile devices; including smartphones, tablets, and laptops.
- Never give anyone your username, password, or any other personal info.
- Do not open emails, attachments, or links from unknown sources.
- Do not visit untrusted websites; this will reduce any chances of your computer or device getting infected with malware.
- Physical security of your devices is also important; make sure you enable password PINs on your devices, in case they are ever lost or stolen.
