Cyber Threats

 

Cybercriminals use tactics like phishing emails and fake websites to steal personal and financial information. Malware and ransomware can also infect devices, encrypting valuable data.

Protective Measures


   - Secure Email: Avoid clicking on suspicious links or attachments. Verify sensitive information through secure channels.
   - Password Management: Use complex, unique passwords and avoid reuse. Consider password management applications.
   - 2-Step Authentication: Enable 2-factor authentication for added security.
   - Social Media Security: Adjust privacy settings and limit public exposure.
   - Data Protection: Encrypt sensitive data and secure devices.
   - Software Updates: Keep software up to date to patch security vulnerabilities.
   - Wi-Fi Security: Use VPNs on public Wi-Fi and secure home networks.

Avoiding Business Email Compromise (BEC)

 

BEC scams involve compromising email accounts to intercept communications or conduct unauthorized transfers. Be vigilant and verify requests for fund transfers.
