Cyber Security Tips

Remote work and cloud-based operations have continued to be a focus for many large companies, even as the COVID-19 pandemic winds down. But with that, the world of cybersecurity has seen an increase in threats. Unfortunately, 95% of cybersecurity breaches are caused by human error and 68% of business leaders feel their cybersecurity risks are increasing.

In order to help combat that increasing threat, here are some tips to help protect yourself:
  1. Make sure your phone and computer are up to date on all software.
  2. When in doubt of a link, do not click
  3. Lock your screens when away from your devices.
  4. Make your passwords unique and complex
  5. Never share your password
