Tips For Cyber Security

10 Most Important Tip To prevent Cyber Crime
  • 1. Use a strong password (a combination of upper and lower case letters, symbols and numbers).

  • 2. Don’t believe everything you read – make sure you know it’s coming from a reliable source.

  • 3. Don’t give out any private information over the internet or through mobile phones about you, your family, friends or other people that you know.

  • 4. Think before you send! You have to think about what you are saying and how the recipient/s may feel.

  • 5. Don’t hide behind a computer screen, if you wouldn’t say it to their face, don’t say it at all!

  • 6. Don’t post inappropriate or illegal content anywhere on the internet.

  • 7. Make sure your social networking profile is set to private (check your security settings).

  • 8. Only accept friend requests from people you actually know – even if it is a friend of a friend it’s not a good idea to add them unless you actually know them.

  • 9. Tell your friends to ask for your permission before uploading and/or tagging a photo of you on their social networking profiles.

  • 10. Don’t click on any links that are embedded in emails - type the URL into the browser and go from there
