Cyber Security Awareness Month is coming to an end, but your vigilance does not have to.
Systems are great, but the best security is an educated employee. That’s why we want to share what could be the most important email you read all year.
91% of attacks start with a phishing email. Hackers learned it’s easier to “hack” humans. They’re getting good at it, too.
99% of email attacks rely on the victim clicking a link. A link that typically points to a hackers website but looks exactly like your email account. When you enter your username and password… boom. They know your credentials.
Don’t worry. Be vigilant.
Insource IT has your back. We put enterprise grade systems in place. Your job is to question everything.
How can you protect yourself?
By reading this email you’re already more educated than most.
Assume every email might be malicious.
Use a good password.
Here’s a bad password = Password123
Here’s a good password = tlR*2$5JRg4E
Set up Multi-Factor Authentication
Multi-factor authentication is where you type in a code during login. The code is often sent to you via text message. With multi-factor authentication, even if a hacker guesses your username and password they won’t they won’t be able to log in without knowing your randomized code.
Don’t be afraid. Insource IT is here to help.
As always, if you think this information is helpful feel free to forward it to someone you know.
