Practical Tips to Keep You Safe
We live in a digital world, so keeping your personal information secure and understanding the tools fraudsters use to commit crimes is critical.
Shop Safe on Cyber Monday!
Cyber Monday, the Monday after Thanksgiving, begins a surge of online purchasing activity and with it risks from online criminals. Protect yourself this holiday with these online shopping tips for the U.S. Cyber Security Task Force:
Use a credit card – There are laws to limit your liability for fraudulent credit card charges. To further limit your risks, consider using a single credit card, like your low-rate WCCU Visa, for all of online purchases.
Shopping apps carry risks – generally, there is no legal limit on your liability for money stored in a shopping app (or on a gift card).
Be wary of emails requesting information – Attackers send emails phishing for purchase confirmations or account information during the holidays.
