Security Best Practices
At DigitalMailer, we take security seriously.
Not only do we employ rigorous and thorough security practices in the creation and implementation of our services, we also encourage our users to do all they can to protect their private information.
Here are a list of things you can do to protect your information and keep your customers safe.
Safeguard Your Information
- Do not share your login information with anyone. Never e-mail login information or send it electronically.
- Make sure secure websites lead with "https://", the "s" on the end meaning "secure".
- Always be sure to "log off" of your secure service sites.
- When using third-party or public computers, be sure not to allow automatic logins.
Your Computer's Security
- Update your computer, anti-virus and browser software to get the latest security installments and safeguards.
- Learn about Malware, or malicious software that tracks information on your computer.
- Do not allow automatic login on financial or banking websites or on e-mail.
- Update your passwords periodically. Do not use the same password for every service or login.
- Do not respond to e-mails that ask for your username and password, or any personal information.
- Do not open e-mails from addresses or people you don't recognize or from whom you aren't expecting to hear.
- Never enter personal information into an e-mail message or pop-up window.
- Do not download attachments from unfamiliar e-mails.
Phishing is a form of identity theft that affects millions of people and businesses every year. Victims are usually attacked using e-mails made to look like those sent by financial institutions or businesses. DigitalMailer e-mails will never ask you or your members to divulge personal information through an e-mail system. Any login procedures will be conducted on secure, certified websites. Be aware of phishing scams, which may include any of the following:
- E-mails that require immediate action, or are made to sound "urgent".
- E-mails from unheard-of companies or from companies with which you do not do business.
- Pop-up windows or web pages made to look like alert messages made by a computer program.
- Web pages that have no information, just a series of misdirecting links.
If you feel you have been the victim of a phishing scam or any other form of identity theft, contact the Federal Trade Commission to file a report.
