Cybersecurity Guides for Seniors

 

Senior citizens are the highest risk demographic for digital security issues like identity theft and phishing. According to the FBI, seniors lose well over $2 Billion annually to hackers and scammers.

What can you do about it? To start, print out these one-sheet essential guides and keep them near the computer used by seniors in your family, so they can be easily referenced.

Each sheet covers an important topic like:

  • How to create strong passwords.
  • How to spot malicious pop-ups.
  • How to avoid common phishing attacks.

The guides are designed to be easy-to-read for those with vision problems, styled in large print and with high contrast for black and white printers. The most important reminders are broken down into simple bullet points, so they can be easily referenced by seniors when checking email, browsing the web, and etc.
