In our current cyber environment it is important that you remain cautious when sharing personal information. With advancements in technology, it is now the norm for shopping, finances, and conversation to take place over the Internet; however, that doesn't mean we no longer need to be cautious about sharing information. 

Let's look at ways that you can protect your personal information. 

Guard Your Login Credentials. 

If cybercriminals access your login credentials, they can access your accounts and find personal or professional information. 

Follow these tips to protect your accounts:

- Don't enter credentials unless you are certain a website is secure. 

- Unique passwords can be a simple but effective way to keep your accounts secure. Use a password manager to help you keep track of all your different password combinations. 

- Keep your devices up to date. As part of your security protocol, continually update the security software on all your devices. 

If you follow these tips, you should be less vulnerable to hacking. 

Data Tracking.

Beyond securing login credentials, being mindful of data tracking practices is essential. While cookies serve various legitimate purposes, they enable third parties to collect and utilise your data without your consent. Vigilance is key here; monitoring and controlling cookie permissions and carefully reviewing privacy policies can help mitigate the risks associated with data tracking.

Social Media Platforms.

As a final precaution, you should exercise caution on social media platforms. While they offer a convenient means of staying connected, they also pose risks of oversharing personal information. Reviewing and adjusting privacy settings to limit public access to personal details and being wary of subtle methods of information gathering can help safeguard against potential threats. 

Ultimately, we must recognise our role as the first line of defence in protecting our personal information online. By adopting strong security practices and staying informed about data privacy issues, we can build our digital defences and minimise the risk of falling victim to cyber threats.
