A checklist for staying safe online

  1. Are you using the internet safely? Be wary about the links you click, things you download and the websites you visit.
  2. Do you think twice about what you share online? Once you post it, you can’t take it back!
  3. Are you using a secure password? Your password should be long and strong with a mix of letters, numbers and special characters.
  4. Do you download software and operating system updates regularly, or enable automatic updates? This easy step offers good protection against hackers and cyber-attacks.
  5. Are you vigilant when downloading free software? Free is never really free; are you giving away personal information or downloading malware to get this free software?
  6. Have you taken the Digital Self-Defence training? For eligible employees, Digital Self-Defence will teach you more about identifying risks and protecting against cyber-attacks.
