Cyber threat increased for individuals too
Cyber security is still very important at the individual level as well. Individuals can reduce the risk by keeping a few things in mind. If you do a lot of online purchases, first of all make sure that you do not use the same password across all portals. Keep your password complex and should not have anything to do with your personal details. If you use a debit or credit card for online purchases, change your PIN number every three months. The same should be used for digital wallets.
use different user id
Apart from this, keep different user IDs. This reduces the chances of data theft and fraud. To create a unique user ID, add the name of the portal.
shop on big websites
However, this does not provide any guarantee. But large businesses offer better security systems and generally deal with only those vendors who are verified.
