The holiday shopping season is rapidly approaching. Most of us will begin receiving more and more unsolicited emails about super bargains and deals. Therefore I wanted to take this as an opportunity to remind you to be vigilant when opening emails and more importantly when going to links or advertisements that are embedded in those emails. Whenever possible, do not click the link in the email. If it is a reputable business, then to get the deals you can open your browser and type the address of that business manually. Nobody wants to ruin their holiday season by having their identity stolen or their bank accounts wiped out because of some spam deal that was just too good to be true. Please remember to have a sound cyber-defense strategy this holiday season. At a minimum I recommend the following items: - Be sure to keep your operating system and applications up-to-date with the latest available vendor-provided security patches. - Maintain a reputable anti-malware solution on your personal computer ##Community First Bank & Trust does not endorse any software systems which are not provided by our institution. Microsoft provides a web page with a list of options for consumer security software providers. Always use caution when opening emails. - Do not let guests or others have unattended use of your computer. - Never use an open/public WiFi internet connection to shop online. - And use good sound password management techniques. - Change passwords frequently - Utilize complex passwords when possible (UPPER case, lower case, numbers and symbols) - Use shortened phrases as passwords rather than family names or single words found in the dictionary - Use at least 8 characters (12 or more would be better…)
On April 18, 2014 Microsoft discontinued support of Windows XP Operating System.
