October is Cybersecurity Month!

Did you know? October is Cybersecurity Month. We’ve provided a few tips and tricks to help keep you cybersecure.

Tip #1: Monitor Your Accounts Regularly

Make sure that all transactions posted are ones you have authorized. Report any suspected fraudulent or suspicious activity to your bank. Be sure to setup Debit Card Alert Notifications on your card. It will send text and or/email notifications on all purchases made with your card! Know where your money is going at all times.

Tip #2: Look Out for Strange Emails

Don’t respond to emails that claim to be from your bank (or any other company) requesting your account details or passwords. Banks will not reach out to you over email to ask for your account details.

Tip #3: Change your Passwords Regularly

Avoid using the same password across multiple sites and make sure you are choosing a strong password that is a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters.

Tip #4: Disable Automatic Login

Do not allow your web browser to store private username and password information for your online banking websites.
