Make cybersecurity your top priority

Keeping our assets safe and making cybersecurity is a top priority.


Here are five things you can do to keep our systems safe:

  • Don’t open emails from people you don’t recognize. Double check emails from people you know that seem out of character, have strange grammar or otherwise seem off in some way.

  • Create a strong password and keep it to yourself.

  • Carefully look at websites you visit. Malicious sites often look just like the legitimate versions, with a slightly different website address or other small differences like misspelling.

  • Be wary of provocative subject lines, like contests, breaking “news” and other “click bait.”

  • Don't click on links, even in text messages, from phone numbers and sources you don't recognize.
