  • Set strong passwords, change them regularly, and don’t share them with anyone.
    • Do not include your name, your kids’ or pets’ names, or other well-known information about yourself in your password;
    • Avoid using common words in your passwords or passphrases. Instead, break up words with numbers and punctuation marks or symbols. For example, @ can replace the letter “A” and an exclamation point (!) can replace the letters “I” and “L”; and
    • Use a combination of upper and lower case letters.
  • Keep your operating system, browser, and other critical software optimized by installing updates.
  • Maintain an open dialogue with your friends, family, colleagues and community about Internet safety.
  • Use privacy settings and limit the amount of personal information you post online.
  • Be cautious about offers online – if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Incident Reporting
