Crestview, Fla. –  A  Crestview bankruptcy law firm,  Lewis and Jurnovoy, is sharing with families how they can protect themselves from data breaches this month. With families increasingly sharing sensitive financial information online, Lewis and Jurnovoy have deemed it necessary to provide tips on how to be safe online.

The first tip Lewis and Jurnovoy shared to protect oneself from a data breach are to set up a fraud alert. They recommend setting up fraud alerts through the financial institutions their clients bank with, especially credit card companies. Those financial companies are legally required to notify their account holders if there is fraudulent activity in their accounts. Account-holders can set the requirements for the fraud alert too, such as being notified every time a transaction is made or only when it exceeds a certain dollar amount.

The second tip the  bankruptcy law firm in Crestview  gives its community is to routinely change their passwords. Most people have heard this tip a thousand times, but it is vitally important to the security of financial information to update passwords often. The time it takes to create a new password that is complex and unique is nothing compared to the time it takes to reverse the effects of financial fraud. Lewis and Jurnovoy recommend using passwords with a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Keep them as complex as possible, so long as they can still be remembered.

The final tip is to carefully examine bank and credit card statements each month. Scammers and thieves will often try to get away with small charges and then escalate to grand purchases if nothing happens. Catching those small, seemingly insignificant charges can be the difference between secured finances and financial fraud.
