BE PREPARED FOR CYBER THREATS

Think about how many times you have gone online in the past week. What did you do while online? Check your e-mail? Track your finances? Share pictures? Download videos?

The Internet today has become an invaluable resource in both our personal and professional lives. We have access to more information than ever. With this added accessibility comes a great deal of risk and added responsibility.

Industry estimates losses in 2008 as high as $1 trillion as a result of intellectual property and data theft. i A 2010 Data Breach Investigation Report reported that 96% of breaches were avoidable through simple or intermediate actions. ii

Cyber threats are real. They don’t just happen to someone else. They can happen to you. That is why Buffalo County has joined forces with the Department of Homeland Security’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Campaign—Stop.Think.Connect.™
The Campaign’s objective is to help you become more aware of growing threats and arm you with the tools to protect yourself, your family, , and our national security.

The Stop.Think.Connect. Campaign offers the following advice:
Stop: Before you use the Internet, take time to understand the risks and learn how to spot potential problems.
Think: Take a moment to be certain the path ahead is clear. Watch for warning signs and consider how your actions online could impact your safety, or your family’s.
Connect: Enjoy the Internet with greater confidence, knowing you’ve taken the right steps to safeguard yourself and your computer.

Stop.Think.Connect. Protect yourself and help keep the web a safer place for everyone.
