We are Data Defenders

Wiregrass Electric Cooperative (WEC) employees are on the job daily to keep your personal information safe!

Here are some things you can do to protect your personal information at home, too:

Create Strong Passwords: Passwords that contain a combination of symbols, numbers, and uppercase and lowercase letters are harder to crack than those that don’t. The longer the password is, the better it is!

Check Your Surroundings: When posting photos to social media, analyze your surroundings — including backgrounds — to ensure sensitive information isn’t visible in the photo!

Don't Go Phishing: Beware of unsolicited emails. They could have links and attachments that download malware, which can be used to steal personal information.

We hope you’ll practice these tips during National Cybersecurity Month and beyond.
