How can I help elderly family members with cybersecurity and online privacy?

Older generations may not have grown up with all the connected devices and online services we have today, but they're using digital solutions more than ever before. Unfortunately, they're also common targets for identity thieves. The seniors in your life may look like easy prey to unscrupulous caregivers. Fraudsters sometimes assume older individuals are less stringent about protecting their credentials for financial accounts and digital logins. Cyberscout’s online knowledge portal provides guidance on protecting seniors’ online privacy and helps them recognize risk areas, such as social engineering scams that often target the elderly. Our suite of services also includes seniors fraud resolution, designed to help older family members—parents and grandparents (in-laws, too!)—stay safe online.
