Data Privacy Day

     
Data Privacy Day 
occurs every year on January 28th as a reminder to carefully manage your privacy settings on your devices and online services. This nationally recognized day is a perfect opportunity for individuals to evaluate their personal cybersecurity. 

Our personal data is collected and used through a variety of media outlets. In today’s society, large amounts of personal data can easily be distributed on the internet.

Here are some steps you can take to protect yourself:

  • On any new device, set your privacy settings IMMEDIATELY! This includes new applications, social media, programs, etc.
  • Never use unsecured WiFi- especially for banking or shopping.
  • Always keep your software up to date.
  • Never give personal information over the phone, email, or text.
  • Use strong password phases. The longer the password the better.
