October is National Cyber Security Month. The National Cyber Security Alliance has dedicated a theme to each week of the month. This week’s theme is “Make Your Home a Haven for Online Safety.”

This week, consider internet safety tips to teach not only your children, but also your parents.

*Remind them that the IRS, Medicare/Medicaid, and other government agencies do not made calls unsolicited.

*Microsoft does not call to say your computer has a virus, and they shouldn’t click on a pop-up.

*Show them, for example, to look for the padlock symbol on a site to ensure it’s safety.

*Keep advised on the latest internet scams and share them with elderly relatives.

*Explain what a phishing email is to them.

Give us a call for help with your privacy and security needs.
