Stay Safe Online

While the Internet can make our lives easier and more connected, it can also increase the risk of theft, fraud and abuse. No country, industry, university, community or individual is immune to cyber-risks.

With the help of these simple tips from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, you can enhance your online security:

  • Set strong passwords and don’t share them with anyone.
  • Keep your operating system, browser and other critical software optimized by installing updates.
  • Maintain an open dialogue with your family, friends and community about Internet safety.
  • Limit the amount of personal information you post online and use privacy settings to avoid sharing information widely.
  • Be cautious about what you receive or read online — if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
