New Year Cyber Resolutions 2019

1 January 2019

For a wonderful (and secure) year ahead, consider Cyber Resolutions for 2019

1.   I will change all default passwords on my personal and work devices.
2.   I will regularly check for updates to the operating systems of my laptop, computer and mobile phone.
3.   I will install strong anti-virus software and keep it updated.
4.   I will think twice before clicking on unknown links or attachments in emails.
5.   I will authorise payments to new transfer partners via telephone to minimise risk of fraud.
6.   I will not share sensitive information on social media that could be used against me in phishing attacks.
7.   I will back up my entire system at least once a week on an external hard drive.
8.   I will encrypt my mobile phone and all of my other devices.
9.   I will talk to my kids (or parents) about how to stay safe online.
10.   In the event that resolutions 1-9 fail, I'll have a cyber insurance policy in place to save the day!
