Security recommendations:

  • General
    • If someone asks you for information, question why they are asking and if you really know who is asking.
    • Never provide information to inquiries that come to you. Always go to an organization's official site or address.
    • Always pause and evaluate before providing information.
  • Passwords
    • Never give passwords to anyone. No organization should ever ask you for your password.
    • Use a separate password for each account you use (both personal and work).
    • Use two-factor authentication when available.
    • Use strong passwords.
  • Devices
    • Keep your device (computer, phone,… ) software/operating system up-to-date.
    • Secure devices to prevent access if lost or in case of unauthorized access attempts.
    • Make sure you are securely backing-up important data stored on your device.

If you suspect any of your accounts or devices may have been compromised, change your password(s) immediately by going to the source organization(s).
