Staying safe online with cyber security

The widespread availability of computers and connections to the internet provides everyone with 24/7 access to information - anything from providing financial services to the weekly shopping and much in between.

Unfortunately, some individuals exploit the net through criminal behaviour. Fraudsters can try to gain unauthorised access to your computer and then use that access to steal your identity, commit fraud, or even launch cyber attacks against others.

However, there are a number of cyber security practices which can limit the harm cyber criminals can do to your computer, and even your business. Belfast Telegraph
