e-safety - Cyber Hygiene
It is difficult to imagine how we would have functioned this year without our smartphones, laptops, and the services we access online. They have become an essential part of our personal and professional lives. With this in mind, it is important to be aware of the steps you can take to protect your devices and prevent unauthorised access or loss, as well as helping children and young people to do this too.
What is cyber security?
Cyber security refers to how individuals and organisations:
protect devices, services and networks from theft and damage
prevent unauthorised access to personal information stored on devices and in accounts
Personal information can include:
a home address
an email address
Cyber security also helps reduce damage caused by accidents.
