Cybersecurity Tip #1 – Own IT: manage your privacy

This week’s cybersecurity focus is to “Own IT.” by managing your privacy.
Your devices — smartphones, laptops, and wearables — make it easy to connect to the world around you, but they can also pack a lot of info about you and your friends and family, such as your contacts, photos, videos, locations and health and financial data. Here are a couple of tips to help manage your privacy in an always-on world:
  • Think before you app: Information about you, such as the games you like to play, your contacts list, where you shop and your location, has value, just like money. Be thoughtful about who gets that information and how it’s collected through apps. Remember, personal information is like money. Value it. Protect it.
