Cybersecurity Tip of the Week – Take Time To Limit Exposure of Private Information


Default options on certain websites may be chosen for ease, not security. For instance, avoid allowing a website to remember your password. If your password is stored, your profile and any account information provided on that site are readily available if an attacker gains access to your computer. Better security would be to engage in a password manager that would create complex passwords for you and manage their use. 

Additionally, evaluate your settings on websites used for social networking. The nature of those sites is to share information, but you can restrict access to limit who can see that information. Check your privacy settings for these accounts.
