Has Your E-mail Address Been Compromised?

Your email address is your literal address to all of your secure data. You probably use your email to get into your bank account, tax documents, and all of the juicy secure data.

Emails:  

With data breaches so prevalent, you should periodically check the site: https://haveibeenpwned.com/ to see if your email address has been part of a breach. If you were, you should IMMEDIATELY change your password. You should use one of the techniques mentioned in our "How Safe Are Your Passwords?" blog post.

Another way hackers are taking your information or laying viruses is through phishing emails. Watch out for the following:

  • Hyperlinks that don't match the ones displayed
  • Requests for personal information via email or phone
  • Demands for immediate action and threatening messages
  • Prompts to collect a prize from a contest you did not enter
  • Requests for a donation
  • Suspicious attachments and links

If your email has been compromised, we can work with you to ensure your data is safe.  Contact us at 614-548-1135 or sales@centraltech.io.
