Happy Cyber Monday!

Here are 5 Tips to Stop Cyber Monday Pirates:

  • Create unique passwords – Millions of people use easy-to-guess passwords on sensitive online accounts with 123456 topping the list.
  • Public WiFi poses major security risks – Be cautious when using it and avoid online shopping while using public WiFi as it is a hacker’s paradise.
  • Estimated, every 14 seconds, organizations fall victim to cyber-attacks – Think before you click! Delete emails that are suspicious.
  • Be aware of online offers – If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is…!
