Personal and Business Information is Like Money. Protect It. – Believe it or not, information about your purchasing history and location has value (just like money). Think about who is getting that information and how it’s collected by apps and websites. In particular, be careful with banking and credit card information when conducting business transactions.

Keep a Clean Machine – Keep all software on ALL your Internet-connected devices – this includes PCs, smartphones and tablets – up to date to reduce your risks of compromise.

Get 2-Steps Ahead – Many accounts these days support two-step authentication. Turn it on!
