Don't Lose That Device
Wed, 21 Feb 2018 00:00:00 EST
Did you know that according to the Verizon DBIR report, you are 100 times more likely to lose a laptop or mobile devices than have it stolen? When you are traveling, always double-check to make sure you have your mobile device with you, such as when leaving airport security, exiting your taxi or check out of your hotel.

Social Media Privacy Settings

Privacy settings on social networks have limited value. They are confusing to configure and change often. Ultimately, if you do not want your parents or boss reading it, do not post it.

Kids and Education
Mon, 19 Feb 2018 00:00:00 EST
One of the most effective methods you can use to protect kids online is to talk to them. The younger you start talking to them, and they to you, the better. Hold regular conversations about online safety issues, even going so far as to show them actual negative events that have taken place. If you dont know what your kids are doing, simply ask. Play the clueless parent and ask them to show you what the latest technologies are and how they use them. Quite often, kids love the idea of being the teacher and will open up.

Paper Documents Also Have to Be Protected
Fri, 16 Feb 2018 00:00:00 EST
Keep in mind that digital data is not the only thing that needs to be protected. Paper documents also need to be protected. When disposing of any confidential documents, make sure they are shredded first or disposed of in bins for shredding. Also, be sure to lock up any sensitive documents before you go home at the end of the day.

Two Home Computers
Thu, 15 Feb 2018 00:00:00 EST
If possible, have two computers at home -- one for parents and one for kids. If you are sharing a computer, make sure you have separate accounts for everyone and that kids do not have privileged access.
