BUSINESS INSIDER-COURTESY OF MATT STUTES-CORNERSTONE WEALTH MANAGEMENT- - BUSINESS INSIDER-courtesy of Matt Stutes-Cornerstone Wealth Management- Cybersecurity is present in every aspect of our lives, whether it be at

home, work, school, or on the go. Regardless of one's technical ability

or background, there are simple steps everyone can take to stay safe

online.

SIMPLE TIPS

Protect yourself online and help to make the Internet safer and more

secure by following these simple tips:

Enable stronger authentication. Always enable stronger

authentication for an extra layer of security beyond the password

that is available on most major email, social media and financial

accounts. Stronger authentication (e.g., multi-factor authentication

that can use a one-time code texted to a mobile device) helps verify

that a user has authorized access to an online account.

Make your passwords long & strong. Use complex passwords

with a combination of numbers, symbols, and letters. Use unique

passwords for different accounts.

Change your passwords regularly, especially if you believe

they have been compromised.

Keep a clean machine. Update the security software, operating

system, and web browser on all of your Internet-connected

devices. Keeping your security software up to date will prevent

attackers from taking advantage of known vulnerabilities.

When in doubt, throw it out. Links in email and online posts are

often the way cyber criminals compromise your computer. If it

looks suspicious (even if you know the source), delete it.

Share with care. Limit the amount of personal information you

share online and use privacy settings to avoid sharing information

widely.
