Don’t download ANYTHING you’re not authorized to download

Quick Tip: Check before you download.

Why: So you have a big file you need to get over to your printer YESTERDAY and you can’t get it to “send” via email because the file is too big. What should you do? The right thing to do is contact your IT department (us!) so we can assist by installing a secure, commercial-grade file-sharing application.

Beware of copycat websites, especially Office 365!

Quick Tips:
(1) Bookmark websites accessed frequently to avoid scams from copycat websites.
(2) Implement multi-factor authentication (MFA) now.

Why: You do not want to share your credentials with anyone! Hackers put up websites that look almost exactly like real websites to fool you into getting that information.

Make THIS password different from everything else

Quick Tip: Make your email password different than all others.

Why: You know you’re guilty of it: using the same password for everything. Believe me, I understand how annoying it is to try and remember all those passwords. If you’re using the same password for sites that don’t share sensitive information, like a login to a news feed you like to read, then it’s generally okay.
