Here are tips 13 – 16 for cybersecurity month. These are the last tips for this month. After this, I will give you the myths, which are my favorite!

Tip #13: Don’t underestimate a hacker’s interest in your data

Whether it’s your company’s data or your personal data, it’s worth something to a hacker. For example, if your password is compromised, a hacker could have easy access into your account, where they could steal more info or cause serious damage. #CybersecurityAwarenessMonth


Tip #14: Virtually & physically secure sensitive information

Make sure you take the appropriate steps to safeguard sensitive information whether it’s virtual or physical. Keep your devices and workstations locked any time they’re left unattended and lock physical locations storing sensitive information as well. #CybersecurityAwarenessMonth


Tip #15: Delete old accounts that you no longer use 

The more accounts you have online, the greater your security risk. Many of our old accounts contain outdated and potentially breached passwords. If you’re no longer using an account, it’s best to delete it to help protect your personal information. #CybersecurityAwarenessMonth


Tip #16: Encrypt your devices & data

Encryption helps you securely protect the data that you don’t want others accessing and is a great way to add an extra layer of security in the event your device or data falls into the wrong hands. #CybersecurityAwarenessMonth
