Did You Know…?

February 8, 2022 | Weekly Commentary

Cybersecurity is something Team VNFA takes very seriously. We participate in regular trainings to stay on top of the latest and to keep ourselves alert. Here are a few quick tips to protect your digital privacy at tax season and year-round:

  1. Implement multi-factor authentication on your accounts and make it 99% less likely you’ll get hacked.
  2. Update your software. In fact, turn on automatic updates.
  3. Think before you click. More than 90% of successful cyber-attacks start with a phishing e-mail.
  4. Use strong passwords, and ideally a password manager to general and store unique passwords.
