Tips & Advice: Developing Good Online Safety Habits

by Employee ‎10-05-2012 05:17 PM - edited ‎10-05-2012 05:20 PM

helpful tips.jpgIn honor of National Cyber Securty Awareness Month and courtesy of our friends at StopThinkConnect.org, here are five tips to help you develop good online safety habits in a nefarious online (and offline) world:

 

  1. Keep a Clean Machine: Make sure you have the latest security software (like Verizon Internet Security Suite for PC) and operating system updates to defend against threats such as malware, viruses and phishing scams. 

  2. Protect Your Personal Information: Passwords should be "long" and "strong." When creating a password, use a combination of capital and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols, and don't use the same password for all of your accounts. Trouble remembering your passwords? Use some old school security! Write them down and keep them locked away in a safe location, just in case.

  3. Connect with Care: The local coffee shop comes in handy when you want to grab a half skim-half soy latte while working on your memoir, but that complimentary Wi-FI can also be a backdoor into your machine for others. When connected to a public hotspot, adjust your security settings accordingly... and make sure no one's looking over your shoulder, too.

  4. Be Web Wise: Think before clicking that bright, flashing banner advertising a "special offer," and never provide any personal information on a site that you don't trust or can't confirm is secure.

  5. Be a Good Online Citizen: The Golden Rule: "Post only about others as you would have them post about you." Let's build a better, more fun and more engaging global digital community together!

Wait! Don’t Dig -- Call 811 First

by Employee ‎04-12-2012 09:04 AM - edited ‎04-12-2012 09:10 AM

811.jpgWith spring upon us, homeowners and builders are beginning outdoor digging projects. You can help improve the customer experience and protect our network by calling 811 before you dig to ensure buried utility lines are marked.

811 is the national call-before-you-dig number, which must be called before every digging project, from simple landscaping projects like planting trees or shrubs to building a deck or installing a mailbox.

 

About 165,000 underground utilities are damaged annually across the U.S., and one out of every three incidents results from not calling 811. Be sure to call 811 before you dig, and educate a friend or neighbor about the importance of calling 811 if they have digging projects.

Here’s how it works:

  • Place one free, simple call to 811 to inform your local one-call center of your intent to dig.
     
  • Call as early as possible prior to digging to ensure enough time for utility lines to be properly marked.
     
  • When you call 811, a representative will ask for the location and description of your digging project.
