With cybersecurity extending far beyond traditional laptops and desktops, we need to be very vigilant in protecting our personal information. Many of the electronic devices we are enjoying today, from cell phones and tablets to video games and car navigation systems, are in fact computers – all which introduce new risks.
In an effort to assist you in identifying these risks and avoid attacks by the ‘bad actors’ who are taking advantage of these technological advancements, we have expanded the ‘Cybersecurity’ section on our website. Along with articles and information from our Chief Information Officer, we will now be sharing security tips from the US Department of Homeland Security and other organizations that provide us with invaluable cybersecurity information. Additionally, we have added an Identity Theft Reporting and Recovery section. This section contains immediate steps that should be taken, as recommended by the Federal Trade Commission (the ‘FTC’), when falling victim to identity theft. Also provided in this section is the link to the FTC’s identity theft website (www.identitytheft.gov). The website provides extensive information on identity theft, allows for immediate reporting of an incident and assists in all aspects of recovery.
As Chief Information Security Officer, I am always available to answer any questions you may have about our firm’s cybersecurity plan, as well as cyber information posted on our website.
