In some areas, such as connected devices and virtual currencies, you may not be able to do much beyond staying vigilant.
As always, you should be cautious about opening file attachments or clicking suspicious links or links from unknown sources. Protect your mobile devices against malware and exploits by using security software. Finally, use two-factor authentication wherever possible, and be sure to set up strong, unique passwords for the various sites and services you visit and rely on, so that a data breach at one site doesn't compromise your entire online identity.
