While the Internet has proved to be a useful tool for transferring and obtaining information, it can also be a dangerous place at times. Sadly, there are criminals lurking around waiting for their opportunity to steal your information.
As we continue to provide information to our members on ways to prevent Internet crime and how to stay safe online, we have developed an Online Safety Checklist. With over 20 points to remember when using the Internet, we hope it will help you and yours determine how safe you are online based on the precautions you are currently taking, and what you can do in the future to have extra protection.
A few of the checkpoints include:
- My computer is password protected.
- My web browsers are up to date.
- I know where to report cyber crime.
