Strategic Wealth Partners recently hosted a panel discussion on how you can protect yourself from cybercrime. The panel, moderated by Tom Buhrmann, Wealth Advisor, featured Adam Moseley, Managing Director at Charles Schwab Advisory Services and Lindsay Pflug, Manager of Training & Process Development. The panel fielded questions from the audience and shared tips and tricks on how to protect yourself online.
While a myriad of topics were covered, a primary point of discussion was email phishing attempts. “If you think an email is suspicious and you don’t recognize the sender, it is best to delete it and not click on any links,” Moseley said. Pflug added, “Even if the email is from a sender you recognize, such as your bank, you should never click on a link in it to login to your account. Instead, search using your browser and go to the institution’s main website and enter your credentials there”.
