1. Do not click any weird links in emails you don't recognize.
If you don't recognize the sender or you are not expecting someone to send you a link it is best to not click.
2. Have a good password policy
One of the easiest ways to access a system is a weak or stale password. A weak password is typically something common like "password" for your password or "123". A stale password is a password that has been in use for more than 3 months on average. It is best to change passwords on a quarterly or earlier schedule.
