As technology changes and people acquire more electronics, it’s important to keep your personal defenses up by implementing safety precautions to help protect your personal data.

  • Create strong unique passwords for each site you use.
  • To help block security threats, make sure your computer and devices, including your web browser, are updated with the latest software.
  • Never check financial or other sensitive data when using public Wi-Fi.
  • Be wary of emails prompting you to share personal information.
  • Think before you click. Don’t click on links or download attachments from emails unless it is something you are expecting from a trusted source.  
In recognition of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, Salem Electric is giving away ten one year subscriptions to LastPass, a password manager that stores encrypted passwords online.
