Cyber Tip of the Day - Anti-Virus

To help promote Cybersecurity Awareness, we would like to start your week with a tip to stay safe online. Today’s subject: Anti-virus.

Anti-virus software prevents, detects, and removes malicious software from your devices. While it’s not a silver bullet, it’s critical to your on-line safety.

Here are some cybersecurity tips to protect yourself:

  • Use a reputable anti-virus solution that has anti-malware and anti-phishing capabilities.

  • Keep your anti-virus software up-to-date and fully patched.
  • Turn on automatic software updates.
  • Be cybersecurity aware and scan all incoming email attachments, even if you recognize and trust the sender.
  • Configure your anti-virus software to start and run automatically.
  • Set up your anti-virus software to run periodic scans on your devices.
