Understand Your Digital Profile. Do you know how your devices are connecting to the internet? Knowing how your information is being shared online—sometimes intentionally, sometimes not—is an important step in limiting your exposure to risk.
Secure Your Digital Profile. Cybercriminals are better than ever at extracting data from unsuspecting victims. You can stop them by creating stronger passwords and taking advantage of the security features available on your devices.
Maintain Your Digital Profile. Every click, share, send and post you make creates a digital trail that can be exploited by cybercriminals. Make sure the privacy settings on your social and email accounts are as tight as possible.
