  • Take the time to practice safe online behavior -- be sure to end every online session by logging off your personal accounts when you're done using them.
  • Don't access personal documents or online bank accounts on public computers.
  • Only shop with reputable online companies and be sure to verify web sites for their authenticity before submitting credit card numbers or other personally identifiable information.
  • Frequently change your passwords and ensure they're hard to guess by including a series of numbers, letters and symbols.
  • Every year complete a full analysis of your online persona. Use a search engine to gather and review all content associated with your identity.
  • Check your financial health annually by obtaining a copy of your credit report to look for false or fraudulent activity.
