The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA) lead a collaborative effort to raise cybersecurity awareness nationally and internationally.  Learn these four key action steps:
  • Think Before You Click: Recognize and Report Phishing: If a link looks a little off, think before you click. It could be an attempt to get sensitive information or install malware.
  • Update Your Software: Don't delay -- if you see a software update notification, act promptly. Better yet, turn on automatic updates.
  • Use Strong Passwords: Use passwords that are long, unique, and randomly generated. Use password managers to generate and remember different, complex passwords for each of your accounts. A passwords manager will encrypt passwords, securing them for you!
  • Enable Multi-Factor Authentication: You need more than a password to protect your online accounts, and enabling multi-factor authentication makes you significantly less likely to get hacked.
