Cybersecurity remains a top priority for us at Omega 365. This October, during International Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we are committed to enhancing awareness on this critical topic. Here are four tips to elevate our cybersecurity!
Recognize & report phishing
Most successful online intrusions result from a recipient of a "phishing" message accidentally downloading malware or giving their personal information to a spammer. Do not click or engage with these phishing attempts. Instead, recognize them by their use of alarming language or offers that are too good to be true. Report to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use strong passwords
Simple passwords are easy to guess, putting your security at risk. In the ever-growing landscape of cyber threats, crafting robust, lengthy, and random passwords with special characters becomes important. Make sure that each account has a unique password for better security.
Turn on multifactor authentication (MFA)
Use MFA on any site that offers it. MFA provides an extra layer of security in addition to a password when logging into accounts and apps, like a face scan or a code sent by text.
When devices, apps, or software programs (especially antivirus software) notify you that updates are available, make sure to install them as soon as possible. Updates close security code bugs to better protect your data. Turn on automatic updates to make it even easier.
