  1. STOP to think before responding. Do not let a false sense of urgency or trickery force you into doing something you should not.
  2. ASK yourself, does this seem real or safe, what you are being prompted or instructed to do? Is this a normal, recurring task you are familiar with or something new and unexpected? How likely is this to be to be real you must ASK yourself?
  3. VERIFY what you are doing and why, including doubling back and certifying every instruction and actor to ensure it is legit and true.
  4. ENGAGE before executing any step to its conclusion. Explore your own instincts and vulnerabilities- and if not, who else might you ask for help. And invoke all necessary steps to the best of your ability to ENSURE you are not being hacked.
