Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.
Join us in celebrating National Cybersecurity Awareness Month and help promote safe online activity practices! Here at NBT Bank, we prioritize the safety of our customers by constantly enhancing our security measures and educating customers on how to #BeCyberSmart and remain #CyberAware.
This month, we’ve joined the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCSA) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) in their campaign to Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT. These three simple tips encompass all necessary actions to fight against cybercrime. The focus to #BeCyberSmart is to be intentional with your online activity.
Each week we’ll be diving deeper into these topics:
Own IT: Keep track of the information you’re sharing online and what rights those platforms have to it. Regularly maintain privacy settings and manage your information.
Secure IT: Establish unique passwords and keep them private. Set up multi-factor authentication when available and never write down your login credentials. Ensure that you’re the sole person that can login to your accounts.
Protect IT: Be cautious when you see an email that looks suspicious. Never click on links or attachments if an email seems unusual or you don’t know who it’s from. If you receive a suspicious email that claims to be from NBT Bank, notify us by emailing ReportFraud@nbtbank.com.
October may be dedicated to raising cybersecurity awareness, but the effort doesn’t stop there. We encourage you to explore the Fraud Information Center to learn more about how to prevent, protect, and report all suspicious banking activity. This information is updated on a regular basis. Throughout the month you can also join us on Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn as we share information about this topic.
