Cybersecurity threats are constantly evolving and continually emerging. Keeping these threats “at bay” is challenging for everyone: individuals, organizations, and security professionals.


Here are some ways you can help protect your online safety and privacy:


·      Use strong and unique passwords: Use complex passwords that are difficult to guess and avoid using the same password for multiple accounts.

·      Enable two-factor authentication: This adds an extra layer of security to your accounts by requiring a second form ofv erification, such as a code sent to your phone or email.

·      Keep software up to date: Make sure to regularly update your operating system and other software, as updates often include security fixes.

·      Use reputable antivirus software: Install and use antivirus software from a trusted source to help protect against malware and other threats.

·      Be cautious of phishing attacks: Be wary of emails, text messages, or other communications that ask for your personal information or contain suspicious links or attachments.

·      Use a virtual private network (VPN): AVPN encrypts your internet connection and can help protect your privacy when browsing the web.

·      Backup your data: Regularly backup your important data to an external hard drive or cloud storage service.

·      Be cautious of public Wi-Fi: Avoid using potentially insecure public Wi-Fi for sensitive activities such as online banking.

·      Limit personal information online: Be cautious about sharing personal information online and adjust your privacy settings on social media and other platforms to limit the amount of information that is publicly available.
