SANS Security Awareness Tips

RSS SANS Institute Security Awareness Tip of the Day

  • Bluetooth July 18, 2018
    Turn off Bluetooth if you are not using it on your computer or device. Not only does this make it more secure, but it also saves battery life.
  • Mobile Apps July 17, 2018
    Only install mobile apps from trusted places, and always double-check the privacy settings to ensure you are not giving away too much information.
  • Kids and Family Members July 16, 2018
    If you have children visiting or staying with family members (such as grandparents), make sure the family members know your rules concerning technology that your kids must follow. Just because your kids leave the house does not mean the rules about what they can do online change.
  • Trust Your Instincts July 13, 2018
    Ultimately, common sense is your best protection. If an email, phone call or online message seems odd, suspicious or too good to be true, it may be an attack.
  • Security Technology Cannot Stop All Attacks July 12, 2018
    Technology alone cannot protect you. Bad guys are constantly developing new ways to get past firewalls, anti-virus and filters. You are the best defense against any attacker.
