Today's world is more interconnected than ever. Yet, for all its advantages, increased connectivity brings increased risks of theft, fraud and abuse. The Attorney General’s Office would like to remind you to protect yourself against cybercrime and get educated about the resources available to victims.

Prevention tips: 

•    Don’t be a victim. Review the Victims of Cybercrime Tip Sheet and learn how to defend against cybercrime.
•    Change passwords. Keep passwords long, strong and unique; use complex combinations of  uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers and symbols, and change them often.
•    Post daily online safety tips. Share tips with friends on social media accounts.
