The internet has made the world smaller in many ways, but it has also opened us up to a multitude of villainous influences that have never been so diverse and challenging. As fast as cybersecurity solutions have grown, the hacking world has grown faster.

Cybersecurity is absolutely vital in a world where the sophistication of cybercriminals and their relentless attacks are unparalleled.


Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting and defending internet-connected computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, networks, and company data, from malicious attackers who want to gain unauthorized access into these systems.


Cybersecurity is important because it protects all categories of data from theft and damage. This includes sensitive data, personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), personal information, intellectual property, data, and governmental and industry information systems.


1. Refrain from using public computers or Wi-Fi when banking online

Anytime you are using public Wi-Fi, you have to assume that someone can access your browser history and your password. So if you are doing anything that requires you to log in, such as banking or reading email, you are putting yourself at risk, Kenyon says. This applies even if you have your email or other password-protected sites set up to automatically insert your password for you and log in.

2. Use licensed and trusted anti-virus software

Even Mac users need to invest in good anti-virus software, Kenyon says. Be sure to check for updates frequently. Either set your computer to check for updates automatically and alert you or plan to check yourself every Saturday or Sunday morning. But, don’t set your computer to download the update automatically. Downloading manually provides the best protection from malware and viruses.


2. Always type in your bank URL every time instead of using email links

Never click on a URL in an email, even if it looks like it’s from a trusted source. “The email and link might look very legitimate but it could sent by an hacker or a spammer to take you where your sensitive information will be stolen” . Always retype the URL into your computer before using it or bookmark your bank’s actual authenticated site, especially if you are using it for an online transaction or to provide sensitive information.
