One of the biggest risks to cybersecurity is “Phishing” — email scams that trick you into revealing private information, such as bank account details and social security numbers. Perpetrators of these scams contact people illegally, pretending to be individuals or organizations you trust.
Be on the lookout for:
- Suspicious links and attachments
- Unusual messages from banks and financial institutions
- Business opportunities that seem “too good to be true”
- Requests for money, account information or passwords
