Public Safety Tip
Cyber Safety 101: Tactics for Teens and Young Adults (Part 1)
While PCs are likely a prerequisite for school-bound young adults, securing laptops or desktops is unlikely to be a top priority. Don’t let high school and college students head off to the classroom or campus life without the knowledge they need to protect their computers and the valuable information on them. The strategies below – tailored specifically to young adults – will help to avert online disasters.
Invest in PC security basics. The must-have core protection for your PC includes anti-spyware, anti-virus, and a firewall. The effort you put into enabling, configuring, and updating this essential software will more than pay off in the long run by guarding you from malicious intrusions online. Also, remember to keep both your operating system and security software up-to-date. (This process can be automated in many applications; use the Microsoft Update website to set your computer to receive security updates automatically.) Keep in mind, the security software that was included with your PC at purchase may be a trial version that will expire if you fail to buy a subscription. So why not invest in a security software that delivers utmost protection for your PC? (Resource Lavasoft)
Please remember to be observant in your neighborhood. Report any suspicious activities or persons to the Bexar County Sherriff’s office. (210) 335-6000
