What is Cyber Security

Cyber security is the means by which individuals and organisations reduce the risk of becoming victims of cyber attack.

Cyber security’s core function is to protect the devices we use – smartphones, laptops, tablets and computers. Also, the services we access, both online and at work, from theft or damage. It’s also about preventing unauthorised access to the vast amounts of personal information we store on these devices, and online.

Cyber security is particularly important in today’s busy world, smartphones, computers and the internet are now such a fundamental part of modern life, that it’s difficult to imagine how we’d function without them. From online banking and shopping, to email and social media, it’s more important than ever to stake steps that can prevent cyber criminals getting hold of our accounts, data, and devices. 

How to protect yourself & your business

Cyber attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are very basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They’re the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it’s unlocked.

Protecting yourself and your business from cyber security risks can seem daunting but there are some simple steps you can take to ensure you have the basics in place.
