Protect yourself from cyber threats and risks

Cyberspace, the Internet, computer networks, the digital world – call it what you will – is always developing. And so are the threats and risks of being online.

According to the Barclays DigiSafe Christmas Survey, 38% of online shoppers either don’t know or aren’t sure how to identify a secure website and 42% are not confident about their online security. The survey also showed that people will lose an estimated £1.3 billion this Christmas.

Security in the Digital World explains the common digital threats to home users, home offices, mobile users, consumers and parents alike, as well as providing tips, advice and guidance. It doesn’t matter if you are working in the most mature enterprise environment, unemployed, retired or still at school, whether you often have a smartphone in your hand or only use an e-reader, you are at risk.

Security in the Digital World is a straightforward guide for the home user, parent, consumer and home office, providing a fountain of knowledge for modern security needs. It gives an overview of who conducts cyber attacks any why, and where cyber threats come from. It also explains what you can do to protect yourself and others, and provides a personal cyber security risk assessment.
