Online Security Tips

While AFCCL is committed to ensure the highest standard of security on our systems, you as the end-user also play an important role to ensure that you are adequately protected when you use the Internet. The following security best practices are recommended:

 

  • Install anti-virus, anti-spyware and other internet security software on your PC. Use it regularly and keep it up-to-date.

  • Take advantage of your PC’s security features. Make sure your browser uses the strongest encryption available and be aware of the encryption levels of the sites and applications you use.

  • Regularly update your PC’s operating system and Web browser software with the vendor’s software patches and updates to protect your PC against known vulnerabilities.

  • Do what you can to prevent unauthorized people from using your PC.

  • Change your passwords often. Be sure to choose passwords that are hard for others to guess.

  • If you notice suspicious activity in your accounts, report it immediately to the appropriate parties.

  • Do not download or open any attachments sent to you by unsolicited email. Once opened, these programs may contain malicious programs that can compromise your PC’s security.

  • Be on the alert for phishing scams. Access Web sites by typing the Web addresses directly into your Web browser or by using Web addresses you have bookmarked, instead of via embedded links in unsolicited emails.
