Basic On-Line Safety Tips
- Keep the computer in a high traffic area of your home.
- Monitor the times your children can be online. Children are at the greatest risk from online predators during the evening hours. This is because most, not all but most, offenders work during the day and spend their evenings online.
- Surf the internet with your children and let them show you what they like to do online.
- Set rules for Social networking, instant messaging, e-mailing, online gaming and the use of webcams.
- Even if your child is computer savvy, do not allow them set up their own email or social networking accounts. Make sure an adult is in control of the set up and also in control of the password.
- Talk to children about what personal information is and why you should never give it to people online or anywhere without a parents’ permission.
- Prepare a list of websites in your favorites or bookmark them so they are a simple click away for your children to access. This will help avoid some of the surfer aspect that could steer minors in the wrong direction.
- After your children have been online, view their browsing history or their sent emails to have a solid understanding of what they are utilizing the internet for.
- Talk with other parents and ask at your children’s school how they are monitoring online usage.
- Increase your own knowledge about computers, technology and the internet.
Our children are our most valuable asset yet our most vulnerable members of society.
Protect them and be their advocate, we are all they have!
Here are a few links that are available if you wish to learn more about online safety. InvisiMax does not endorse any specific websites; we are simply trying to raise awareness for our customers.
Strong Password Guidelines:
ARE YOU AWARE OF THE IMPORTANCE OF A PASSWORD?
Passwords provide the first line of defense against unauthorized access to your computers.
Are you confident that the password you have established is going to protect you and your information?
Is it possible that your password is “weak” and you may have just told a curious hacker (who has somehow gained access to your computer system) that the door is locked but I hide the key under the doormat?
At InvisiMax we value your online security just as much as you, so we have combined a few suggestions as far as changing or establishing your passwords that will help increase your online security.
A Strong Password Does Contain:
- At least 8 characters
- Uppercase letters
- Lowercase letters
- Passphrases: A phrase that is easy to remember and convert into characters. “Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink” = Wwe&nad2D
A Strong Password Does NOT Contain:
- Your username
- Your real name
- Company name
- Pet’s name
- Significant dates such as birthdates or anniversaries
- A complete word that can be found in the dictionary
If your password is easy to remember, it is probably just as easy to guess.
If you feel you must write down your password in order to remember it, make sure you don’t label it as your password, and keep it in a safe place.
It is a good idea to change your password every 90 days.
