TIME FOR DIGITAL SPRING CLEANING!
For many of us, spring is the time for clearing out unwanted items, moving the furniture to do a deep clean, and preparing our yards and gardens for new plantings. The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) want you to consider adding a digital spring clean to your list as well.
“Plan to conduct a digital de-clutter in addition to sprucing up your home this spring,” said Michael Kaiser, NCSA’s executive director. “Take care of that long, overdue digital maintenance and you will be more secure against losing valuable, personal information and being a victim of identity theft while making your online life more manageable. With some smart, simple practices, you will help protect yourself, your family and the extended digital community while enjoying the Internet with greater confidence.”
