Keep Your Money Safe

Strengthen your email security – Email has always been one of the top ways of receiving scams and a favored way by cybercriminals. Email has been associated with being known for its weak security, but there have been many improvements in email security. Here’s how to make it harder for attackers to exploit your email.

  • Use a cloud-based email system.
  • Use multifactor authentication (MFA)
  • Implement email authentication.
  • Enable external email warnings.
  • Consider higher-level security monitoring.
  • Take time in learning and becoming familiar with detecting phishing attempts.
