Three top tips to ensure online security

Online security

It is important for charities to maintain a level of privacy in order to protect their data and sensitive information from the general public. A recent article for CTXchange highlights some key tips to help maintain your online privacy. We have summarised these below:

  1. If you don’t want it shared, don’t put it up! Remember the internet can do funny things – a random bug could make private posts public.
  2. Use high privacy settings. Depending on the social network you can normally choose who you want to be able to view your profile.
  3. Choose unbreakable passwords. A great password is made up of letters and numbers of varying cases, not your first pet’s name or date of birth. Change passwords regularly to keep out unwanted visitors!
