Safeguarding Your Online Presence

Safeguarding Your Online Presence:

Essential Tips for Navigating the Web Safely

At the Waukesha County Community Foundation, safeguarding the information entrusted to us is paramount. As stewards of resources dedicated to enhancing our community, we are constantly vigilant to ensure the security of vital information. In that spirit of commitment and responsibility, we are sharing some tips on mitigating your personal risk from cyber threats.

In an era of global connectivity and heightened digital dependency, protecting yourself from online risks is more crucial than ever. Cyber threats are not limited to large corporations, public entities, or government bodies – individuals are equally susceptible. From viruses and malware to data breaches, fraud, social media attacks, and cyber extortion, the risks are diverse and ever-evolving.

Our partners at R & R Insurance advise these proactive measures:  

  • Password Management: Ensure your online security by using robust, regularly updated passwords. A strong password is a fundamental defense against cyber threats.
  • Technology Resources: Leverage encrypted connections, credit monitoring services, and multi-factor authentication. These tools add an extra layer of protection to your online activities.
  • Work-Life Balance: Keep your personal and business documents on separate, encrypted devices. Maintaining this distinction helps safeguard your sensitive information.
  • Social Media Awareness: Treat everything you post online as public and permanent. Exercise caution with the information you share, as it can impact your online security and personal reputation.
  • Overall Awareness: Stay vigilant in your online transactions, responses, and requests. Verify identities and exercise extra caution when dealing with financial information. A proactive approach goes a long way in mitigating potential risks.

R&R Insurance offers a variety of risk management solutions, including Cyber Insurance for both Personal and Business risks
