Privacy Awareness Week

National Cyber Awareness System

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has released an announcement promoting Privacy Awareness Week (PAW). PAW is an annual event fostering awareness of privacy issues and the importance of protecting personal information. This year’s theme, “Protecting Privacy is Everyone’s Responsibility,” focuses on promoting privacy awareness for consumers and businesses.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) encourages consumers and organizations to review FTC’s post and consider the following practices to protect privacy and safeguard data:

  1. Use and maintain anti-virus software and a firewall.
  2. Regularly scan your computer for spyware.
  3. Keep software up to date.
  4. Remove unused apps and software programs.
  5. Use strong passwords and encrypt sensitive files.
  6. Follow good security habits.

Anti-virus software can identify and block many viruses before they can infect your computer. Once you install anti-virus software, it is important to keep it up to date.
