Hackers are getting more savvy. It is imperative to evaluate how we are protecting our personal information. We must make changes to ensure 2021 is the year for cybersecurity preparedness. New risks in 2021 require constant personal data protection measures to keep you safe. Assess the security measures you already have in place. Just because they were secure at a point in the past, doesn't mean they still are!
According to a recent cybersecurity report by TechRepublic, the average household is hit with 104 threats each month. Here are the top five things on our data privacy checklist.
✅ Email safety - be suspicious. Social media provides a great outlet and place to find distraction, but with volumes of information out there, hackers can easily find ways to reach you.
