Safeguard your Online Banking / Brokerage Account

Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Thursday issued a guide to private investors on the dangers that identity thieves pose to online broker accounts.

1) Beef Up Your Security. Personal firewalls and security software packages (with anti-virus, anti-spam, and spyware detection features) are a must-have for those who engage in online financial transactions.
2) Use a Security Token (if available).
3) Be Careful What You Download.
4) Use Your Own Computer.
5) Don't Respond to Emails Requesting Personal Information.
6) Be Smart About Your Password.
7) Use Extra Caution with Wireless Connections.
8) Log Out Completely.
