Guidelines for safe browsing and email use

Safe browsing and email use are essential for protecting your business and your personal information from cyber threats. Here are some tips for safe browsing and email use:

  1. Use a reputable and up-to-date web browser that includes security features such as a pop-up blocker and phishing protection.
  2. Be cautious when clicking on links, even if they appear to be from a trusted source. Verify the authenticity of the link before proceeding.
  3. Avoid entering personal or financial information on websites that are not secure. Look for the “https” prefix in the URL and a padlock icon to ensure that the site is encrypted.
  4. Use a spam filter to block suspicious emails and messages.
  5. Don’t open emails or attachments from unfamiliar sources.
  6. Be wary of unexpected emails or messages that request personal or financial information, or that contain a sense of urgency.
  7. Use a reputable email provider that offers security features such as encryption and spam protection.
