7 ways to boost your cyber security today
Step 1: Clear out your inbox and unsubscribe to unsolicited email
Take a look at the number of emails received and consider how many of them can be permanently deleted due to non-use or loss of interest. The more emails received, the more vulnerable an account is to a phishing attack.
It’s a good practice to unsubscribe from unwanted emails every few months. Under the CASL Act (Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation), marketing emails are required to contain information about how to unsubscribe. Click on the link labeled “unsubscribe” at the bottom of an email and it should navigate to a confirmation page. Be careful not to share any personally identifying information, other than the email address, when unsubscribing to any email.
