Our guide this week helps you understand the importance of the information that is on the internet about you. Follow the advice that we share to be better protected from cyber attacks such as social engineering.
Top tips for securing your digtial footprint
✅ Review your social media settings. Services such as Facebook often change the configuration of security settings, and so periodically checking these settings is helpful in ensuring that profile information is as private as you would expect.
✅ Go to www.haveibeenpwned.com and check if your email address has been breached, if it has make sure you are not still using the same password for those accounts.
✅ Use a password manager to help manage strong and unique passwords for all accounts.
✅ Set up two-factor authentication (2FA) on all accounts. 2FA adds a second layer of security to your accounts, to help protect you in case your passwords get compromised. For more information on passwords and 2FA, read our recent account security guide.
