WhatsApp



Change Passwords Every 60 Days


Seems excessive,huh? Well it is—but for good reason.


It might be annoying but It’s quick, it’s easy easy, it costs nothing and it’s actually effective! 


Just because you haven’t been a victim of a hack before doesn’t mean you’re safe. Be preventative and change your passwords!

Install an AntiVirus Software


Antivirus software is not 100% fool proof buts is a great first line of defense. Further, it’s always running in the background to provide active protection on things you might overlook.


Access Your Work and Private Accounts from Trusted Devices and Trusted Networks Only


Anytime you type in a password, you’re a potential victim of a keylogger, spyware or packet sniffer.


If you don’t know what those are then definitely make sure to stay away from logging into your work email from a local coffee shop.
