Cybersecurity is a vital part of a strong and secure digital world. It keeps us protected from hackers, cybercriminals, and other sources of fraud. And it is essential that we should know about the different cyber threats and cybersecurity.
October is cybersecurity awareness month. The first tip I have for you is “Think Before You Click”. Hackers depend on catching you off guard and hope that you click on their phishing attempts and obtain access to your personal information.
Think Before You Click
Email allows a fast and convenient way to send and receive information. But it’s not always the safest option, especially when it comes to sensitive information. Email is frequently used for scams, phishing and to spread malicious software, so it is essential to be on guard while using email.
Assess the email or document you are clicking on. Is it from a stranger? What are they asking for? Is the grammar and spelling ok? Take a good look, and think before you click.
By using personal information, current events, hot-button topics, and more, cybercriminals will create enticing headlines to try to trick you into clicking on a malicious link. Inspect every link and stop and think before you click. #CybersecurityAwarenessMonth
