Why is Cyber Security important?

Cyber security is important because 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 take steps that can prevent cyber criminals getting hold of our accounts, data, and devices. 

Always remember to – Stop. Look. Think. Report!

Remember, you are the last line of defence against email based criminal activity.
