Published October 13, 2014

Seeing cybersecurity as a complex task that is the responsibility of all technology users, the Department of Homeland Security emphasizes the following tips for online protection:
  • Keep your operating system, browser, and other critical software optimized by installing updates.
  • Maintain an open dialogue with your family, friends, and community about Internet safety.
  • Limit the amount of personal information you post online and use privacy settings to avoid sharing information widely.
  • Be cautious about what you receive or read online—if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
