Cyber Tip of the Day - Offline Basics - Cybersecurity Awareness

In honor of Cybersecurity Month, we would like to start your week with tips to stay safe online. Today's subject: Offline Basics.

Being safe offline is as important as good cybersecurity practices online. Here are some tips to protect yourself:

  • Switch off your devices when you’re not using them.
  • Don’t share your devices with other people and keep your smartphone within your sight at all times.
  • Password protect your devices and never share your passwords with anyone.
  • Use caution when carrying sensitive items such as payment cards and personal identity cards in a wallet or purse and keep how many of these items you carry to a minimum.
  • Keep good cybersecurity awareness and don’t plug unknown USB drives into your devices.
  • Use a shredder to discard documents with sensitive information.
  • Before sharing information online with someone, ask yourself why they need that information in the first place, and how they will protect it.
  • Keep all your devices locked away safely when you’re not using them.

Be Smart. Be Aware. Be Secure.
