~ Opportunity to order a personalized paver ~

The U.S. Census Bureau has begun address canvassing, the first major field operation of the 2020 Census.  Address canvassing improves and refines the Census Bureau’s address list of households nationwide, which is necessary to deliver invitations to respond to the census.

The U.S. Census staff has “address canvassers” out in the field checking addresses for accuracy and completeness.  They are doing a sample – not every house.  Census staff should have identification if people ask.  They also wear a Census badge and carry a Census laptop or tablet.

The internet has made everything from paying bills to staying in touch with family easier.  It has also opened many new ways for criminals to target sensitive personal and financial information, making it essential that everyone learn how to protect themselves.  To encourage everyone to learn more about their digital risk, Gov. Tony Evers has declared October Cybersecurity Awareness Month in Wisconsin.

Understanding your digital profile and how it can be accessed is key to learning how to protect it.  Cell phones, computers, and other smart devices in your home can all serve as potential access points for digital thieves.  Users should keep track of where their personal information has been entered on physical devices, along with what online accounts they have created and what information is publicly viewable through them.
