Tip #1 Suggested Caption:

This #CybersecurityAwarenessMonth, one of the most important things you can do to keep your data safe is ensuring all your systems are updated frequently. According to Verizon’s 2021 Data Breach Investigations Report, on average, companies have only implemented 42% of patches within 90 days of release. That’s an enormous window of opportunity that we give the bad guys!

Tip #2 Suggested Caption:

Do you use a password manager or vault? These tools generate complex unique passwords for your accounts and save them for you so that all you have to do is remember one master password to get into your manager, making it easy to have different passwords for every account.

Tip #3 Suggested Caption:

MFA requires two or more of the following factors: something you know (like a password), something you have (like an authenticator application), and something you are (like a fingerprint). Having more than one type of authentication greatly reduces your risk from hackers.

Tip #4 Suggested Caption:

While this is almost a given in the current day, many organizations fail to implement this very fundamental security control. However, even those companies that do install Anti-Virus (AV) software on endpoints sometimes fail to ensure that they are constantly updated with the most current virus signatures (how viruses are detected for pattern-based AV products).

Tip #5 Suggested Caption:

Stay Cyber Safe! Never blatantly trust anything that asks you to click on it (particularly pop-ups) without a little critical thinking. Similarly, be wary of any file attachment on emails when you are not expecting them. These are easy ways to bypass your computer’s security, so be on guard.
