Protect Your Small Business with these STOP. THINK. CONNECT. Tips:
Keep a clean machine: Having the latest security software, web browser and operating system is the best defense against viruses, malware and other online threats.

Use email filters to block these emails and be leery of any messages that ask you to provide personal information, even if they appear to come from a bank or company you’ve dealt with.
Protect all devices that connect to the Internet: Along with computers, smartphones, gaming systems and other web-enabled devices also need protection from viruses and malware.
