Cyber Security is our Shared Responsibility 

Security Tips

  1. Make your passwords long, complex, and difficult to guess.
  2. Check the privacy settings on social networking sites. Know who you're sharing your information with.

  4. Don't take the bait. Do not open attachments or click on links from untrusted sources. Never send personal information in an email.
  5. Configure mobile devices to lock the screen automatically after a brief period of inactivity. Use passcodes.
  6. Think your Google account has been affected by a phishing email? Run a google Security Checkup to review your Google settings.
