Cyber Security Awareness Month, October 2019 Part 3
Around the world, October 2019 is recognised as Cyber Security Awareness Month. And so throughout the month of October we will be providing information about the different types of threat, how they can affect you and what we as individuals and companies can do to combat this growing issue.
Many believe that to be an expert in cyber security, you must be an expert with every aspect to be able to fully protect yourself. In reality, we are all able to learn simple steps that can protect ourselves against the most common cyber threats.
Some you may already know, but you either underestimate their importance or choose to ignore them because they are inconvenient. You may also get bogged down with the large amount of security advice out there.
For individuals, your personal behaviours online are just that – personal. How you manage your accounts, or what level of security you choose to implement is your choice. But at the very least, it should be an informed choice.1
