Using Email and the Internet Securely

  • When in doubt, report suspicious mail via the ‘junk mail’ button, or simply delete it.
  • Regularly clear your cookies and browsing history on your devices.
  • Check the websites and portals you visit are secure, indicated in the URL by the ‘s’ in ‘https’.
  • Ignore unsolicited emails and phone calls.
  • Be wary of attachments, links and forms in an email, and avoid untrustworthy downloads and suspicious links on web pages.
  • Use encryption when sending confidential or sensitive data.
