Thrive in a Secure Digital World | Embracing a Secure Lifestyle
Tip 1: Protect Your Personal Information
Guard your personal information like a treasure. Be cautious about what you share online and with whom. Protecting personal information is not only an individual's right but also a responsibility. It safeguards one's privacy, security, and overall well-being, and it has far-reaching implications in today's interconnected world. Both individuals and organizations should prioritize the protection of personal information to maintain trust and security.
Tip 2: Safe Online Shopping Practices
As the holiday season approaches, focus on secure online shopping. Shop on reputable websites, use secure payment methods, and be cautious of offers that seem too good to be true.
The Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) offers a resource on protecting sensitive and personal information from ransomware-caused data breaches. People and organizations alike are at risk of falling victim to a ransomware incident and are responsible for protecting sensitive and personal data stored on their systems.
