Suggestions regarding staying safe submitted by Katrina Meyer:

     1.    Keep all your software updated  

     2.     Do not use the same password over and over. Use keychain or Keeper or other apps to safely store your various passwords and change them regularly.

     3.     Keep your anti-virus protection software up-to-date.

     4.     Be wary of scams. Do not click on links in emails that appear to come from the government or any organization offering coronavirus or financial help.

     5.     Never give your Social Security number online unless you initiated the contact and know it’s a secure site.

     6.     If you work from home, use a VPN for your company‘s business.

     7.     Check out Angela’s links she provided in various newsletters for topics pertinent to staying safe during the pandemic, like not falling prey to malware, worms or Trojans, how to create a strong password etc.

     8.     Never give money or credit card information to anyone online threatening to freeze or erase your computer.

     9.     Don't give money or credit card info online to strangers soliciting help for hardship because of coronavirus. It's usually a scam. If you know the person contact them directly; don't click on links within the message.

     10.     Back up, back up, back up!!
