October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month – Part 4

NCSAMIn this last post, (Part 4) for Cyber Security Awareness Month

Get savvy about Wi-Fi hotspots: Limit the type of business you conduct at a local hotspot. For instance, you might not want to do your banking while at Starbucks.

Protect your $$: When banking and shopping, check to be sure the site is security enabled. Look for web addresses with “https://” or “shttp://,” which means the site takes extra measures to help secure your information. “Http://” is not secure.

Share with care: Think before posting about yourself and others online. Consider what a post reveals, who might see it and how it could be perceived now and in the future.
