 Staying safe and secure online is about more than just avoiding obvious scams. Here are some tips and tricks to always follow.

Passwords:
Too many people continue to use common themes for their password, such as dates for birthdays and anniversaries, names of family members or pets, or even their own name. Passwords should be an absolute minimum of 8 characters in length (10-12 characters is better), with a combination of letters and numbers. Avoid just substituting numbers for letters in names. If your name is Simone, donít have a password of 51m0n3. Itís too obvious.

Emails, attachments and downloads
Be sure to never open email attachments from an unverified source. If the source appears to be someone you know, but there is no text in the email, be suspicious. Avoid opening it until you can check with the sender directly.

Anti-virus software
It is important to install a comprehensive anti-virus solution. It is equally important to maintain the software. Check regularly that it is still functioning, and ensure it is kept current with any updates. Reputable anti-virus software can protect you by scanning for Trojans and malware which can contain viruses that are able to cause untold damage to your computer Ė and which you may not even know about for some time.

 Program updates
Many programs such as Adobe, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Java (just to name a few) are constantly being updated. It is important to check for updates for all programs and to be sure security patches are applied. Some programs update automatically from time to time, so allow your operating system and any other programs to update themselves regularly.
