This year, NCSAM will focus on skills everyone can learn and apply to stay safe online. Their goal is to remind the community of the many ways to keep your data safe and protected. By practicing the basics of cybersecurity at home, school, and in the workplace, you will ensure your data is in a better state. NCSAM 2022 overarching message - See Yourself In Cyber will focus on using strong passwords, updating software, recognizing phishing emails and using multi-factor authentication wherever possible.
- Think Before You Click: Recognize and Report Phishing: If a link looks a little off, think before you click. It could be an attempt to get sensitive information or install malware. Please report the email via the outlook plugin as suspicious if you believe it to not be valid.
- Update Your Software: Don't delay -- If you see a software update notification, act promptly. Better yet, turn on automatic updates.
- Use Strong Passwords: Use passwords that are long, unique, and randomly generated. Use password managers to generate and remember different, complex passwords for each of your accounts. A passwords manager will encrypt passwords securing them for you!
- Enable Multi-Factor Authentication: You need more than a password to protect your online accounts, and enabling MFA makes you significantly less likely to get hacked.
