Marlborough, MA - Thinking of taking your Spring cleaning to another level? It might be time to go digital.  

The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and Better Business Bureau (BBB) are encouraging consumers to get their online lives in good order by conducting a thorough cleanse of their cyber clutter and make “digital spring cleaning” an annual ritual to help protect valuable personal data. A NCSA survey found that preventing identity theft is a top safety concern for Americans, but there are several easy steps that everyone should do that will go a long way in tidying up digital disorder.

“Partaking in a digital cleanse will help secure sensitive material and prevent consumers from falling victim to identity theft,” says Paula Fleming, spokesperson for the local BBB. “Update your security software, organize your inbox, and rid your smartphone of unused apps and storage space.”
