 BBB Recommends ‘Digital Dusting’ as Part of Your Spring Cleaning
‘Secure Your I.D. Day’ Approaches This Week.

CHICAGO – April 18, 2017 – When most people think of Spring Cleaning they think of mops, brooms, and clearing out unwanted items to get a fresh start on the post winter season. Steve Bernas, CEO and president of the Chicago and Northern Illinois Better Business Bureau says, “In an era of ever increasing identity and internet scams, it’s important for consumers to add a good ‘digital dusting’ to their Spring Cleaning tradition.”

“As we approach Secure Your ID Day - this Saturday, April 22nd we remind consumers and businesses that practicing good Cybersecurity is becoming a necessity and there are some simple steps everyone can take to be safer and more secure.”

To help make this process more manageable the BBB and the National Cyber Security Alliance have developed this outline. http://www.bbb.org/digital-spring-cleaning/
