January 28 is Data Privacy Day!  This day is an international effort to provide online privacy education and increase date protection awareness.  What can you do to make protecting your data?

  1. Take control of the privacy settings on each of your online and social media accounts. Customize them to meet your standards. Learn how at https://staysafeonline.org/stay-safe-online/managing-your-privacy/manage-privacy-settings/
  2. Every 2 seconds, there is a new victim of identity theft. Keep your data secure and request a free credit report from annualcreditreport.com to make sure your identity has not been compromised.
  3. Pledge to use strong passwords and update them regularly to ward off criminals.
  4. More than 4 billion people use the internet worldwide. One way to keep your data secure from other users is to NOT access financial accounts when using public WiFi.
