Make a New Year’s resolution for cybersecurity

Business Business Tips
Who knows what 2023 will bring? Aside from the continuing rash of cyberattacks, that is.

Next month, millions of people worldwide will pick up – and likely drop – New Year’s resolutions, many of them centered around physical fitness. But considering how much time we spend on personal internet-connected devices, we should probably devote some of our 2023 promises to cybersecurity.

A few ideas for starters:

• Use a password manager: These apps can connect directly to browsers and create complex passwords locked by encryption measures.

• Beware the inbox: Phishing scams are more sophisticated and cleverer than ever.

• Check URLs: When visiting a website, look for “https” at the start of the URL to be sure it’s secure.
