Keep scrolling to play the online game infiltrators (from CSA 2021) and to find out how to keep you, your data and your devices safe from cybercrime.
Expect to be targeted
Don't ever say "it won't happen to me". Everyone is a potential victim of cyber criminals.
- Never share your password with anyone.
- A good password will be strong, unique, and stored in a password manager.
- Be wary of implied sense of urgency or deadlines.
- If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Trust your gut!
Phishing is an attempt to steal your personal information via email, SMS or a phone call.
How to spot phishing
- Check the sender’s address – were you expecting the email?
- Be aware of basic grammar, spelling errors and always hover over a link before clicking.
- Be wary of all unknown phone numbers and verify where the text or call came from.
- Look out for aggressive extortion tactics.
Anyone can fall for phishing – report it to reduce any potential harm caused.
If in doubt – call it out!
Make passwords difficult to guess by:
- using a unique password for every account
- using the three random words technique
- never share your password with anyone for any reason
- using a password manager to store and suggest passwords
- using a minimum of 12 characters in length - always remember, longer is stronger.
