Cybersecurity in the Workplace is Everyone’s Business:
Protect your data In your daily life, you probably avoid sharing personally identifiable information like your Social Security number or credit card number when answering an unsolicited email, phone call, text message, or instant message. It’s important to exercise the same caution at work.
Avoid pop-ups, unknown emails, and links Beware of phishing. Phishers try to trick you into clicking on a link that may result in a security breach.
Use strong password protection and authentication Strong, complex passwords can help stop cyber thieves from accessing company information. Simple passwords can make access easy.
Connect to secure Wi-Fi Office Wi-Fi networks should be secure, encrypted, and hidden.
Enable firewall protection at work and at home Having a firewall for the company network and your home network is a first line of defense in helping protect data against cyberattacks. Firewalls prevent unauthorized users from accessing your websites, mail services, and other sources of information that can be accessed from the web.
