Don’t click it right way; think and study it first
Take that double check to avoid rambling into a digitally treacherous place. Don't answer to the email because the sender's identity might have been compromised. Even if an email looks like it's from somebody you know, take care with attachments.
Verification and validation
Whenever you are entreated to stipulate private information (yours or someone else's), validate the identity of the asker — even if it seems to be somebody you know. Scammers are shrewd in how they collect information to steal data and identities. Even if you think you're secure, frequently check your financial statements.
Protect your passwords.
Never divulge your passwords to anyone. Make them long, strong, matchless and use multi-factor authentication wherever possible. Suggestion? Make it at least 12-16 characters in Upper and Lower case, special characters and numeric.
Keep one-eye open!
Keep an open eye on your possessions when you're in open places. Bolt things up or take them with you before you leave, even if you’ll only be away for a second. When you're at work, secure your area and lock your computer screen before leaving your table. Take your mobile and other portable items with you.
Be up to date
At home, systematize software updates and intermittently restart your devices to guarantee that updates are entirely installed.
Back it up!
Store backups in a substantially separate setting from the originals and occasionally check them. For important work files, use storage preferences that are permitted by your company. For personal files, save a backup on a separate drive to strongly store it.
If it's suspicious, report it!
Learn how to recognize suspected scams and other suspicious activities. At work, suspicious emails should be forwarded and reported to IT cybersecurity team.
