Cyber-Security Best Practices

Cyber Security Best Practices:


According to KnowBe4 and new data from MediaPRO’s third annual State of Privacy and Security Awareness Report, users are less prepared this year to address the risk of cyberthreat.


With the threat of cyber attacks increasing, organizations would like to think they are prepared to prevent and respond to an attack. But the Deloitte data shows a much bleaker picture:


  • 75% of respondents struggled with identifying best practices related to correct behaviors in cybersecurity and data privacy
  • Employees performed worse this year identifying malware warning signs, knowing how to spot a phishing email, and practicing social media safety.
  • 77% of respondents in management and 74% of employees in subordinate positions showed a general lack of cyber-risk awareness.
  • If this was a graded exam, most users would fail the test,


To change this culture of cyber apathy, organizations need to create a security culture within the organization, leveraging Security Awareness Training as a central part of the strategy, keeping users constantly up-to-date on the latest attack methods, educating them on how to maintain a constant state of security vigilance, and empowering them to spot attacks before they become a victim.


Based on MediaPRO data, every organization is still at risk and it’s imperative that a change in security mindset and education take place immediately.

Are you Peddling Closer to Social Security?

We’d like to remind you to review your Social Security Statement online. The Statement has important Social Security information and, if applicable, estimates of your future benefits.


If you are working, we encourage you to check your Statement yearly to make sure your earnings record is correct. The Statement also will help in planning your financial future.



On June 10, 2017, we added a second method to verify your identity each time you sign in to your account. This is in addition to your username and password. Using two ways to identify you when you log on will help better protect your account from unauthorized use and fraud. Now, when you sign in to your account you will complete two steps:


Step 1: Enter your username and password.

Step 2: Enter the security code we send you by text message or email, depending on your choice (your cell phone provider’s text message and data rates may apply).

With instant access to your Social Security Statement at any time, you will no longer receive one periodically in the mail, saving money and the environment. Thank you for Going Green!
