IT Security Tip: Start with the basics!



You’ve heard the advice countless times before: you must have antivirus software and a strong firewall. However, in this day and age, there is more to the security “basics” than a solid firewall. What if you inadvertently click on an e-mail on your phone from a foreign ambassador trying to move money to the US?  You see it’s a scam, but it’s too late…your phone is infected and now sending a copy of every outgoing e-mail to a crime

network.  NEVER open an Excel attachment called “Invoice” from someone you don’t know. A single crack in your armour can open the door for network attacks. Get serious about locking down your devices, and e-mail filtering.
