Understand your digital profile. Internet-based devices are present in every aspect of our lives: at home, school, work, and on the go. Constant connection provides opportunities for innovation and modernization, but also presents opportunities for potential cybersecurity threats that can compromise your most important personal information. Understand the devices and applications you use every day to help keep you and your information safe and secure.
Secure your digital profile. Cybercriminals are very good at getting personal information from unsuspecting victims, and the methods are getting more sophisticated as technology evolves. Protect against cyber threats by learning about security features available on the equipment and software you use. Apply additional layers of security to your devices - like Multi-Factor Authentication - to better protect your personal information.
Maintain your digital profile. Every click, share, send and post you make creates a digital trail that can be exploited by cybercriminals. To protect yourself from being a cybercrime victim you must understand, secure, and maintain your digital profile. Be familiar with and routinely check privacy settings to help protect your privacy and limit cybercrimes.

We at Upper Peninsula State Bank helped to raise awareness on Cyber Security. Each week we provided information on our website that related to the National Weekly themes. We also hosted Cyber Security Awareness sessions at the bank for our customers as well as the general public, providing some valuable information that can help keep you safe online.
The sessions were a success, as we had a lobby full at each of the sessions. Here are some pictures from one of our sessions. << Session Pictures >>
