Identity theft, phishing and financial loss are not threats reserved only for businesses. As technology continues to evolve so does our chances of personally falling victim to a cybercrime.
Should I be concerned about my personal cyber risk?
From online banking and shopping, to email, gaming and social media, it can be easy to overlook the volume of information that is stored about us and our family online. If you have received an email, text, or social media message that looked suspicious, you‘re likely to be one of 45 million people who have been targeted by cybercriminals, according to media regulator Ofcom.
Why is personal cyber protection important?
In the workplace there will probably be some level of defence, be it a knowledgeable IT team, firewalls, cyber insurance and online security measures set up to offer protection against cyber-attacks.
But what happens when you return home from work? It’s highly likely that there is much less, if any protection in place – yet there is no reduction in threat levels.
