How can I protect myself?

Most of us rely on the internet on a daily basis. We are all becoming more dependent on the internet for our needs, whether it’s to manage our finances, communicate with friends and family or online shopping.

The government provides advice on how to:

  • protect your device
  • protect your data
  • protect your business

on the cyberaware website. It has helpful password security and software update guidance. These are quick and simple steps that will make your devices (like laptops, tablets, mobiles and home computers) much better protected against the vast majority of cyber attacks. Additional mobile phone guidance is available.
