    10 Simple Dos and Don’ts for Better Cybersecurity Smarts


    1) DO make sure that when you connect to a wireless connection, you are connecting to the proper network, otherwise known as SSID.

    DON’T assume that because the name may sound similar that it comes from a trusted source.

    2) DO use passwords that include a mix of upper and lower-case letters, including special characters.

    DON’T use names/numbers of your dog, family members, street address and birthday.

    3) DO take advantage of dual or multifactor authentication. Many Web sites now offer securities beyond just a username and password, such as a token, smartcard, PIN, or even user-selected security images that you will recognize upon login.

    DON’T use username and password only when other options are available.

    4) DO maintain a list of passwords in a safe place, and change them at least quarterly.

    DON’T keep the same passwords without changing them.

    5) DO keep your corporate passwords separate from your personal passwords.

    DON’T keep reusing your personal password for your company password, or vice versa.

    6) DO make sure that your computer has the latest patches and virus signatures loaded.

    DON’T assume that the virus detection software works perpetually with computers.

    7) DO use cloud data systems to upload and share nonconfidential data.

    DON’T trust friends, family and associates with using your personal computer when you are not present.

    8) DO back up data onto removable media and store in a safe place.

    DON’T assume someone else has the responsibility to maintain and protect your data.

    9) DO check E-mails carefully to ensure that the source header is from a valid address.

    DON’T fall prey to clicking a link to malicious Web sites that load malware into your computer.

    10) DO establish a relationship with a reputable cybersecurity firm. Ask questions in advance about policy and procedures to keep your company safe on the Internet.

    DON’T wait until you are confronted with an incident to seek advice.
