COOPERATOR October 2018 Q IT'S CYBERSECURITY MONTH Protecting Your Data Is Every


Employee's Responsibility The new reality of cybersecurity requires vigilence


T


echnology breaches––think customer credit card data being stolen from Target, or consumer


data being stolen from Experian––have become more commonplace. At Kay Electric Cooperative, this new reality requires increased security measures and constant monitoring of organizational and personal data to ensure your identities, credit card numbers or bank accounts are never compromised.


Keeping systems secure is not solely the responsibility of your co-op's information technology employees. It is Kay Electric's policy that employees are trained and prepared to protect critical personal and organizational data and keep it safe from potential breaches.


Kay Electric works closely with the National Information Solutions Cooperative to maintain multilevel security protocols that ensure the best SRVVLEOH F\EHU GHIHQVHV &R RS ¿UHZDOOV are tested by an independent company that attempts to breach security in a number of ways, and then provides the co-op with a WKRURXJK HYDOXDWLRQ RI WKHLU ¿QGLQJV


At the national level, electric co-ops— with the Department of Energy and National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA)––are working together through the Rural Cooperative Cybersecurity Capabilities (RC3) program to better protect members from security threats. The program includes training, tools and resourced geared twoard small and medium-sized co-ops. Such partnerships among co-ops foster a culture of cybersecurity and ensure that warnings and threats, as well as solutions, are shared in a timely fashion.


PROTECT YOURSELF FROM CYBER THIEVES


Think before you click.


• Always hover over a link first to be sure it's safe.


• Report suspicious emails from an unknown sender to your spam filter and delete them from your inbox.


Watch for red flags to identify potential phish attacks:


• Phishing attempts seek to steal or compromise data and will often mimic a known sender.


Look for red flags:


1. The email is unexpected. 2. There is a sense of urgency conveyed.


3. There's an offer that seems too good to be true.


4. There are typos and misspellings.
