Helping Military Families Be On Guard Online
If you’re part of the military community, take a look at OnGuard Online’s new page for military members and their families. National Cyber Security Awareness Month is well underway, and it’s a great time to take stock of ways you can get in the habit of securing your computer, protecting your personal information and avoiding fraud online. Whether you’re an active duty service member, veteran or part of a military family, you can find great online security tips.
For example, did you know that if you’re about to be deployed, you can ask to place an Active Duty Alert on your credit reports? That can protect your credit and minimize your risk of identity theft while you’re away. The military page also links to helpful guidance from DoD about using social media effectively and responsibly. Check it out --- the military page is a great way for military personnel and their families to start exploring OnGuardOnline.gov.
