Cybersecurity Awareness Month Kickoff - Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

Cybersecurity Awareness Month Kickoff

 October kicks off National Cybersecurity Awareness Month and Better Business Bureau will be working with several organizations to raise awareness. Everyone who uses digital technology devices at home or office needs to play a part in cyber security. BBB will focus on cyber security for the next several weeks and we have two tips for today:

BBB "Secure Your ID" Day - This is BBB's ongoing campaign to encourage safe handling of personal information. Join us at the BBB Offices on Saturday, October 18th, from 9 a.m. to noon. Everyone can bring up to three boxes or bags of documents to have shredded for free. We have a records retention schedule available online for consumers to decide what to keep and what needs shredding.

STOP. THINK. CONNECT. - The BBB has joined the National Cyber Security Awareness campaign to help educate the public about online scams and how to respond when they occur. Consumers are strongly advised to:

Stop. Before you go online, find out how to spot and avoid potential problems.

Think. Check to be sure a link or email is legitimate before you click.

Connect. Enjoy the Internet with greater confidence, knowing you've taken the right steps to safeguard yourself, your friends, and your workplace.
