VPN’s or Virtual Private Networks can be added on to many of the major anti-virus software on the market today. VPN’s allow you to work online but have your IP address hidden. It also creates an extra level of security to deter hackers.

Phishing is an attempt to either gain and exploit your sensitive information or get you to click on a file or link containing malware or ransomware. Right now with everyone working from home, hackers are trying harder to get your info. Don’t open emails from suspicious sources, don’t click any link in an unknown email, and definitely don’t try to sign into a site from an unfamiliar email. Be extra careful with every email you receive!
