Evergreen recommends clients take these steps to better protect themselves:
1. Strengthen Passwords and Enable Two-Factor Authentication: Creating strong and unique passwords for investment accounts is crucial. A strong password should include a combination of upper and lower-case letters, numbers, and special characters. Additionally, enabling two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security by requiring a secondary verification method, such as a code sent to a mobile device, to access the account. This helps prevent unauthorized access even if the password is compromised.
2. Maintain Updated Security Software and Operating Systems: Regularly updating security software, such as antivirus and anti-malware programs, helps protect against emerging online threats. Additionally, keeping operating systems, web browsers, and other software up to date with the latest security patches and updates is essential. These updates often include fixes for vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers.
3. Exercise Caution with Phishing Attempts and Suspicious Links: Phishing attacks are a common method used by hackers to gain unauthorized access to personal and financial information. Be vigilant when interacting with emails, messages, or pop-up windows that ask for sensitive information or prompt you to click on suspicious links. Verify the authenticity of the sender or source before providing any personal or financial details. It's advisable to directly visit the official website or contact the company through official channels rather than clicking on provided links.
Bonus Tip: Regularly Monitor and Review Account Activity: Timely detection and reporting of potential security breaches can help mitigate potential losses and ensure swift actions are taken to protect investments.
Remember, protecting investments from online threats requires a proactive approach, staying informed about the latest security practices, and exercising caution while engaging in online activities related to investment accounts.
