If you print it, go get it right away!
Don’t leave important, sensitive, or confidential material lying around the office. Common printing areas are frequented by people coming and going. Often you will be in line to pick up your documents and others may handle them before you. This leads to unnecessary information disclosures. One boss had a print job disappear, and had e-mailed the whole floor about it. The pages never turned up. Always use the closest print station, or a dedicated printer for confidential information, and go get it right away!

Beware of fake antivirus software:

Have you ever installed antivirus software thinking that it will protect your system but later you found out you have installed a fake application?
If yes then there are 80% chances that you have installed a Trojan horse virus. This often happens when we visit a website infected with malware and is prompted with a pop-up message which mostly states that your PC is infected. The pop-up window will include antivirus download icon or scan icon and will highlight some of the malwares which are actually fake. The window will tell you to scan your computer. On clicking either of the buttons you will inadvertently install the Trojan horse virus. It may ask you to pay to register that fake application in order to remove the false threats.

Three Tips for Safer Online Transactions:
Make sure that the URL of the website begins with https (not http). Https ensures that your username, password, credit card number, expiration date and other information are sent from your computer to the site in encrypted form. Encryption helps to make your connection secure and reduces the risk that malicious people may intercept the information your enter and make illegal use of it.
 A yellow icon that looks like a padlock at the lower right corner of your browser window confirms that you have a secure connection.
 Some websites present a certificate of authenticity when you browse to them as a way to assure you that the site is legitimate. Check to make sure the certificate is valid and has not expired. If you are satisfied with the validity of the certificate, click on the link that takes you to the site itself. An invalid or expired certificate may indicate that the site neither authentic nor secure.

Don't Trust Links Sent in Email Messages
A common fraud, called "phishing", sends messages that appear to be from a reputed bank, famous shop, auction or banded companies, giving a link to a fake website and inviting you to follow that link to confirm your bank account details for sending a attractive gift. The fraudsters then use your account details to buy stuff or transfer money out of the account. These fake sites can be hard to spot. So please remember any reputable organization will never send such kind of message for your confidential information. Your security depends on your own concern and always follows CCFIS to grow up your concern for new level of security threats.

Security tip of the day:
Know your IMEI?
Did you know there is a unique serial number that identifies each mobile phone? Press *#06# on your phone's keypad, and it will display a 15 digit number. Make a record of that number, it is your International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number; and, if the phone is lost or stolen, the phone can be identified even if a new SIM card is added. Your provider can also block others from using the phone on their network, which could help protect you against expensive 1-900 phone calls and similar mischief.
