We want to encourage you to do your part in making everyone's online lives safe and secure. Here are some basic tips:
- Keep a Clean Machine: Having the latest security software, web browser, and operating system are the best defenses against viruses, malware, and other online threats.
- Protect all devices that connect to the Internet: Along with computers, smart phones, gaming systems, and other web-enabled devices also need protection from viruses and malware.
- Plug & scan: “USBs” and other external devices can be infected by viruses and malware. Use your security software to scan them.
- Back it up: Protect your valuable work, music, photos, and other digital information by making an electronic copy and storing it safely.
