Tip of the Week:

Anyone With Access to Your Computer or Mobile Device Could Potentially Infect It With Malware. Never Let Friends or Family Use Your Computer.

Friends or family members, especially children, could unintentionally infect your computer or mobile device with malware. When this occurs, all of the data on the computer or device could become compromised. If your computer has access to your workplace information, you should never let anyone else use it. This is true even if you create a guest account or other account for them to use.

Phishing

Phishing scams appear to originate from a trusted source to trick a user into providing information. The attacker can then use this information to access your accounts, gather additional private information about you, and make purchases or apply for credit in your name.

Identity Protection

Identity theft is a crime in which an imposter obtains key pieces of personal information, such as Social Security or driver's license numbers, in order to impersonate someone else.
