Get Safe Online

Get Safe Online is out banging the drum for improved Internet security awareness amongst consumers and small businesses. As expected, their new survey reveals some strikingly relaxed attitudes (e.g. 25% of respondents were either not aware of phishing scams, or were unsure of how to protect themselves from being lured to fraudulent websites). Their government-backed website provides a good primer in some of the basics of Internet security, but for businesses that are growing from the sapling to young tree stage it is also helpful to have some more detail, hence my chapter for small businesses in ‘A Business Guide to Information Security’.
