Digital Spring Cleaning
The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and Better Business Bureau (BBB) are encouraging consumers to get their online lives in good order by conducting a thorough cleanse of their cyber clutter. With preventing identity theft a top safety concern for Americans, NCSA and BBB urge everyone to make “digital spring cleaning” an annual ritual to help protect valuable personal data.
“Chances are that over the years you’ve accumulated lots of digital clutter that can impact your cybersecurity posture. It’s critical to remember that just as you shred sensitive paper documents before discarding, you should properly destroy important electronic data."
