How to improve your risk profile
- Conduct an audit of all your passwords to check their strength.
- If your passwords are weak, be sure to change them.
- If you use only one password, at a minimum, choose unique passwords for sensitive sites and accounts.
- Assess your social media presence - how much about you is easily accessible to the public, and is this information a cyber security liability?
- If you need to use file sharing software or are unsure how to share files securely, check with the IT department for the best way to access information remotely.
- Consult with IT about if, how, when and where your data is backed up in the event of cyber attack and loss of information.
