Cybersecurity tips for the New Year.

Cyberthreats don’t take a break for the holidays. Follow these tips to help you stay cybersafe.

Here are our ‘Top Cybersecurity Tips’ for the upcoming holiday season.

Don't use weak passwords

Still using birthdays or consecutive numbers like 123456? Use complex passwords and don’t use the same password across several sites, apps, or devices.

Ensure that a website is secured

Access sites with HTTPS before giving away your sensitive information such as your credit card or bank account details.

Recognize impersonated emails

Probe when an email is suspiciously written or is asking you to perform an unusual activity, such as validating your bank account or changing your email password.

Only connect to networks that you trust

Hackers can imitate legitimate free wi-fi networks offered by establishments to hack your device. Wait until you can connect to a trusted network.

Activate multi-factor authentication

A secondary device to verify your identity can stop hackers from progressing their attack. Many apps and platforms have MFA. Turn it on for your safety.

Update your device's operating system

Make sure you have the latest security patches by updating your OS regularly.
