Myth: Cybersecurity Is Only a Concern if I Use Windows

Cyber-criminals can (and do) take advantage of vulnerabilities on every operating system, including Mac OS, Microsoft Windows, and distributions of Linux. No matter which operating system you use, be sure to keep up with the latest security patches. In addition to operating system patches, be on the lookout for updates to other software you use, including web browsers (such as Chrome or Safari), add-ons, and applications (such as Adobe Reader).
