Week 1

CYBER SAFETY
STARTS AT HOME!

KEEP A CLEAN
MACHINE
Having the latest security
software, web browser
and operating system is
the best defense against
viruses, malware and other
online threats. Remember,
mobile phones and tablets
need updating too!

LOCK DOWN
YOUR LOGIN
Usernames and passwords
are not enough to protect
key accounts like email,
bank and social media.
Improve account security
by enabling strong
authentication tools such
as biometrics or unique
one-time codes.

SHARE WITH CARE
Think before posting
about yourself and
others online. Consider
what a post reveals, who
might see it and how
it could be perceived now
and in the future.

BACK IT UP
Protect your valuable work,
music, photos and other
digital information by
making an electronic copy
and storing it safely.

SECURE YOUR
WI-FI ROUTER
Set a strong passphrase
(at least 12 characters long)
for your Wi-Fi network.
Focus on positive sentences
or phrases that you like
to think about and are easy
to remember (for example,
“I love country music.”).
Name your network in a
way that doesn’t let people
know it’s your house.

PERSONAL INFORMATION
IS LIKE MONEY.
VALUE IT. PROTECT IT.
Information about you,
such as your purchase history or
location, has value – just
like money. Be thoughtful about
who gets that information
and how it’s collected through
apps and websites.
