IT Security Tip #15
Set Up Bank Alerts – NOW!

Here’s a tip that just might save your bacon: set up withdrawal alerts on your bank accounts. Many banks will send you an e-mail alert whenever money is withdrawn from your account via check, debit card, or transfer. Setting up those alerts will allow you to spot and report fraudulent activity BEFORE the money has already been siphoned into a cybercriminal’s hands.

And now for a slightly different security discussion:

If you have a vehicle with a push-button start, thieves can use a receiver to pick up and rebroadcast your key fob’s signal to your car. This allows the thief to enter, start, and drive away with your vehicle right out of your driveway or your work parking place.

The fix – either:

  • Deactivate the key fob’s radio (and then re-activating it every time you want to drive the car), or
  • Place the key fob inside a faraday pouch when not using it to enter or start your car.

This video explains how these faraday pouches work, and why it might be a good idea to get one for each of your key fobs.
