OUR TOP SECURITY TIPS

How to keep your IT system and data safe.

 

DO:

  • Keep your password complex and over 8 characters (mixing letters and numbers).
  • Keep your password private and use different ones for different accounts.
  • Report anything unusual immediately to the site or account manager.
  • Check the URL HTTPS:// if you’re handling sensitive data.
  • Change your password if compromised.
  • Always patch and update your software and antivirus.

 

DON’T:

  • Let others ‘shoulder surf’ and view personal details.
  • Open links to unknown or untrusted websites.
  • Leave privacy settings on websites such as Facebook as default - alter them for your own safety.
  • Share USB sticks with anyone.
  • Write down or share your password with anyone.
  • Tolerate any form of cyber bullying.
