Security Tips

While we take strong measures to ensure the security and confidentiality of your information, it is extremely important that you also recognize and do your part. We realize you know all of this already but it is our job to remind you!

You play a role in protecting the security of your personal information. In addition to following safe computing practices, here are some other best practices that can help you keep your information secure.

  • Stay informed and follow any new security practices that may emerge over time.
  • Protect Your Password.  Passwords should be strong, unique, and never shared.
  • Notify Recorded Future of any phishing or odd emails regarding our service.
  • Keep your operating system and software up-to-date
  • Use two-factor authentication where available, especially with your email account. Your email is often the link to unlocking many other sensitive services like social networks, banking and retail. Similarly insist on and use dual factor authentication with other important accounts like banking and sites that have direct links to your bank like paypal and ebay
  • Beware of Phishing Emails - Don't respond or visit links from unsolicited emails. If in doubt don’t click the link - go directly to the site in question.
  • Don’t Visit Suspicious or Unsafe Websites - Be sure to check the URL, especially the domain, carefully before navigating to an external website.
  • Be circumspect with what information you provide to internet sites or over email.  Provide only information that is absolutely needed and nothing more.

Stay safe!
