October is CYBER SECURITY MONTH here are some tips you can do to proctect yourself and your privacy: 1. Be smart about passwords. Use strong passwords with a combination of uppercase and lowercase characters, numbers, and symbols. This will help you defend against hackers who make random and systematic guesses that are based on commonly used words 2.Update your software. Hackers exploit vulnerabilities that are found in commonly used software such as your operating system, office productivity software, and web browsers. To prevent this, you should Install all updates to your software programs, and set them to automatically update, if that's possible. Install anti-malware software on all computers. If you have multiple networked computers, use software that provides enterprise-level security and that manages updates 3.Block spam. It's essential to have a good spam blocker. Spam is the most common path by which you can be targeted for infection with a computer virus or social engineering. (Social engineering is when criminals psychologically manipulate people so that they divulge confidential information.) 4.Browse the Internet more securely. Verify that a web page is legitimate before you enter any financial or personal information. For example, enter your bank's website addressmanually into your browser's address bar, rather than clicking a link to it in a questionable email, and make sure there aren'tany typos. 4Laptops, tablets, and phones are easily lost or stolen.A mobile device should never be the only location for any set of important data. Any device that can be lost or misplaced should be encrypted. This precaution should include laptops.Use GPS and location features on your phone or tabletonly when you need to. It's true that this feature can bevery convenient for personalization. However, locationdata that is included with your status posts or picturescould give hackers additional information that they coulduse for social engineering. 5.Be vigilant when you use public computers You should view every public computer as a security risk. This includes public computers at airports or stores, or computer labs that provide public access. These computers should already be in a "kiosk mode," in which data is not saved, but never assume that is the case. If you must use a public computer Never use one for financial transactions. If you access email or social media, use the browser's "private" mode, which doesn't store any information after you close the browser. You can access this from the main toolbar where you'd normally open a new tab or window. Log out of all user accounts and close all open browser windows when you're done. 6. In a public space, you also need to be particularly aware of physical security.Don't leave the computer unattended with sensitive information on the screen. Be aware of individuals who could look over your shoulder. Avoid working on sensitive projects in a crowded area such as on a bus.Never insert your devices or drives into a public computer.. 7.Be cautious when you use public Wi-Fi You should treat all public Wi-Fi networks as insecure. This means you should Use public Wi-Fi networks only for nonessential Internetbrowsing.Never make financial or personal transactions over a public network.Consider safer alternatives. See if you could talk to aperson via phone, or in person when he or she is available. 8.Social media is social (not "private") Anything you post online is both permanent and transmittable. Everything you do on a social media site is also accessible by advertisers, and often may be more publicly accessible than you realize. 9.Limit how much you share Personal details can be used to defraud, impersonate, or find you. Things you post online could also affect your future job, credit, or insurance application and might reflect badly on your organization.

Car Break-In/ Car Theft Prevention Tips 1.Lock the doors and close the windows. Don’t make it easy for a thief to break in or reach in and snatch anything of value! Make it a habit to double check that your doors are locked and your windows are closed when parking your vehicle. 2.Don’t leave your car running. It can be tempting to leave your car running when you’re just popping in and out of the store, but this also makes it pretty easy for a thief to hop in and drive away. 3.Park in well-lit areas. If you’re parking your car somewhere after the sun has gone down, try to find a spot underneath a streetlight that’s well lit and well trafficked. Thieves may be less likely to rummage through a car with a spotlight on them and a potential audience just around the corner. 4.Hide any valuables. Better yet, avoid keeping valuables in your car at all. If a thief must choose between a seemingly empty car or one with a laptop, cell phone, or wallet on the passenger seat, guess which one they’ll choose? If you must leave something important in your car, put it in your trunk before you reach your destination. Experienced thieves have been known to stake out parking lots, look for drivers transferring things to their cars trunk, and then break into that trunk. 5.Invest in an anti-theft system. Whether it’s a steering wheel lock, a window alarm, or an ignition cut-off system, anything that makes a thief work harder could also make your car safer. If it will slow them down or potentially get them caught, they’ll probably pass. For more info, Contact: Ptl. Keith Jackson, CRU at 732-248-6462e
