Have you been receiving spam calls pretending to be from companies looking to get your personal information? Either stay on the phone and choose the option to take your number off the list for future calls or block the number. #CyberSecurity
Phishing tricks users to provide sensitive information to cyber criminals via email. These emails appear similar to trustworthy email addresses, but they are only used to acquire credentials, financial information or other sensitive data.
Be careful when connecting your mobile device to an unknown Wi-Fi. This is another way cyber criminals can use Wi-Fi to gain access to your information.
A disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico is expected to bring gusty winds and heavy rainfall to parts of Southeast Georgia this weekend. Only 2-4 inches of rainfall are expected in Georgia, so flooding is not a concern. Stay tuned to local news channels for updates on the forecast.
It’s finally time to #ShakeOut! Remember to participate in the drill at 10:17 a.m. today!
For your mobile device, use a PIN or password that only you would know. That way, if your phone is lost or stolen, the information on your phone is secure.

Can hackers only gain access to your information through computers? No, mobile devices, gaming systems and other devices can lead hackers to your information as well.
Did you know the Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) setting is the strongest encryption option? Make sure to choose this setting when changing your home Wi-Fi passwords. #passwordmanagement
Are you changing your work and social media passwords monthly? Remember, using a two-factor authentication (two methods of verification) also helps as well. #CyberSecurity
This week’s all about Password Management. Try strong passwords that are 12 characters or longer. Also, try and use upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters. #CyberSecurityAwarenessMonth
Today kicks off Cyber Security Awareness Month! Make sure to use different passwords for your social media accounts. This ensures hackers won’t obtain access to all your information. #CyberSecurityAwarenessMonth
