Safer Internet Day 10 Feb 2015

In support of safer internet day logoSafer Internet Day 2015 , this blog post highlights some of the threats that you might face online, as well as simple ways to protect yourself.

One of the most common threats is called “phishing”. We get this in our email every day, or it can exist in any link that we might click on. Our friends in University College London have let us use their anti-phishing game. If you play this it’s a great way to see how to recognise phishing attacks, and how to avoid them.

And finally, Get Safe Online gives practical and sensible advice on how to protect yourself, your computers and mobiles device and your business against problems you might encounter online.
