Please be aware there are two main defenses against cyber attacks.
- Never answer suspicious looking emails especilly when they are requesting any type of information such as your name, passwords, social security numbers etc. Always forward them to me for review
- Change your password often, if you mistakenly give away your username and password the threat will be eliminated if you change your password before someone can use it and get into your account
