In today’s increasingly digital world, we are more interconnected than ever before. Laptops, smartphones, tablets, and other mobile technology have increased our remote networking capabilities, meaning communication is instant and constant accessibility is expected. While advancements in technology have made communication seamless and our lives easier in some ways, this increased connectivity comes with several security concerns and an increased risk of crime. Cyber security is therefore one of the most pressing concerns today, which is why October was named National Cyber Security Awareness Month.
In honor of Cyber Security Awareness, we wanted to review a few ways for you to increase your personal cyber security:
- Make sure you are using smart passwords. Do not use the same password for multiple accounts and take your password protection beyond your pets name or child’s date of birth.
- Ensure mobile security by locking mobile devices with a passcode and investing in tracking technology. Be aware of what networks you are connecting to and how secure your information may be on that connection.
- Be careful with how much you reveal over social media. Including personal contact information or your birth date and year on your social profile may seem harmless, but think twice about making such personal information public to unknown parties across the internet.
At Secure Pacific, we value security in all aspects of life and would like to encourage everyone to take an afternoon to ensure their online safety. Then, take that cyber protection to the next level by investing in a wireless remote video monitoring system from Secure Pacific.
