28 Oct 10 Cyber Safety Tips That Every Family Should Know [with Bonus Infographic]
October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. However, staying alert and safe online is important every month of the year.
Technology elevates our day-to-day lives. Ordering a new sippy cup for your one-year-old, locking the doors and windows of your home, setting the alarm, and streaming a live concert 1,500 miles away are all possible today because of the technology that powers our smartphones and other Wi-Fi-enabled devices.
Swapping out your high energy–consuming refrigerator for a smart fridge, investing in a Chromebook, and upgrading to the latest iPhone may seem like no-brainers. However, there is a flipside to these premium pieces of technology—cybercrime.
Unfortunately, cybercrime is on the rise. Therefore, protecting yourself and your loved ones online and offline has never been more critical for families. From phishing emails to cyber extortion, cyberbullying, and identity theft, new digital threats emerge daily as our culture becomes more connected. Fortunately, there are a few ways to keep yourself safe while shopping online, learning remotely, working from home, Googling “easy weeknight recipes,” and refreshing your inbox.
In addition to protecting yourself and your finances with a personal cyber insurance policy, the following 10 tips will help keep you, your personal data, and, most importantly, your family safe while connected to the Internet.
