Spear phishing campaigns: You have received them in your inbox all the time. They say: “Open attached, invoice attached.” They are emails from people you do not know and sometimes from companies you do business with—be careful what you open. A few simple steps you can take to make sure you’re not a victim of malware of phishing are:

1. Make sure you have virus protection installed and up to date.

2. Don’t click on links you do not recognize.

3. Hover over the link and make sure the link matches the email description.

4. If you know the person, email them back from a new email requesting confirmation.

5. Delete the email ASAP.

These simple steps add an extra level of protection. Also, remember to update and back up your computer files every day.
