Use Some Good Digital Tools
Many tools are available to consumers so they can organize their financial lives. FICO's Lasher likes mint.com because it gives her a single view of all of her accounts at once. This comes in handy not only from a day-to-day perspective, but also in the event of a compromise in that consumers can check the account they've been notified about, as well as all of their other accounts, for irregular activity. 
Cybrary's Underhill also recommends consumers use VirusTotal so they can be updated on the status of all new malware, plus share malware with the VirusTotal security community. The service keeps the security community and users up-to-speed on many of the latest threats, he explains.
