What You Can Do

Although government and private partnerships are in place to help protect infrastructure at the state and national levels, there are steps citizens can take to help safeguard their communities.

Remain vigilant to suspicious activity, and report any concerns to local law enforcement.

Use cybersecurity principles, such as strong passwords and encryption, to protect accounts that could be used to access a system.

Practice regular safety techniques at home and while in public, which can help eliminate security holes related to customer wellbeing.
