TOP TECH TIP

My number one tip…be diligent about phishing and spam emails, and scams like that. Be diligent with your security. Make sure you don’t have passwords laying around and you’re choosing secure passwords – long phrases, using special characters. We have an application called LastPass, and I highly recommend the use of that for managing passwords.
