At Covington, we are continuously trying to not only ensure we keep your information safe, but also educate you on how to keep your personal information and assets secure. With the help of our Custodian, Charles Schwab, we wanted to provide you with additional information about protecting your assets/identity and how to respond to a data breach in the future.
Please review the attachment descriptions below and click on the links to view the informational slides:
- Protecting_Your_Identity_Data_and_AssetsPOWERPOINT.ppt–This is a slide deck that covers common cybersecurity threats, how Covington protects client information and assets, and best practices clients can implement to protect themselves from cyberattacks.
- How_To_Respond_To_A_Data_Breach.pdf –This is a flyer to help educate clients who either know, or suspect they have been, victims of a cyberattack, including Social Security fraud and identity theft. The handout covers actions clients should consider taking if their personal information has been compromised.
To add an extra layer of security to your online account, Charles Schwab offers two-factor authentication by giving you the option to order a security token that you would use every time you log in to Schwab Alliance. Please call Schwab Alliance at 1-800-515-2157 if you are interested in ordering the token.
