Cyber Crime is one of the illegal activities with the quickest rate of growth in today’s society. One in five Indians, according to a recent study, have had their accounts breached or their personal information stolen. Other sorts of cybercrimes, besides financial fraud or online identity theft, include bullying, email spoofing, stalking, hacking, information piracy and forgery, as well as crimes against intellectual property.

Here are a number of ways to better protect yourself against computer crime.

  • Lock or log off your computer when you step away. You want to make sure no one else has access to all your information.
  • Use security settings. Use PIN’s or passcodes to protect yourself from someone accessing your information. Use Multi-Factor authentication (Like SU’S DUO service) wherever possible, this will cut down on the ability for your identity to be compromised significantly. Do not reuse passwords and a password manager to store/generate passwords. If you suspect your accounts have been compromised change your password(s).
  • Have current security software and update it regularly. The latest security software protects against viruses, malware and other on-line threats.
  • Consider sharing less online. The types of information you should avoid sharing include your date of birth, geographic information, and personal family information such as pet names or the city you live in. Do not share when you are going on vacation, but maybe share when you get back. Social media profiles give criminals a more complete picture for them to steal your identity.
  • Verify Email Senders. If an email looks suspicious, asks for personal information, or appears from a superior asking you to perform a favor always verify the sender. For email to your University account, any email sent from a non-University account will have a banner at the top informing you that the email originated from outside the University.
  • Talk To Your Children about the Internet. You can teach your kids about acceptable use of the internet without shutting down communication channels. Make sure they know that they can come to you if they’re experiencing any kind of online harassment, stalking, or bullying.
  • Don’t fall for pop-ups. If an email or a pop-up window requests your username or password, do not enter it. Instead, launch your browser and navigate directly to the website. If you’re still not convinced, contact the company or entity that allegedly got you. Know that established and well-known companies will never request your login information via email.
