Strong Passwords Important For Cyber Security

One of the keys to cyber security is also one of the simplest. Jerad Albracht is with the state’s Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. He says it helps to have strong passwords for your accounts to protect your from hackers. It is especially recommended for your email accounts, which are more vulnerable. Albracht also recommends backing up your important files to protect them in case your hard drive fails, you accidentally delete them, your device is stolen, or you become the victim of a “ransomware” scam. External drives, the Cloud, and USB drives are some of the ways you can back up your files. Other tips on Cyber Security are available at the Department’s website throughout this month.
