Tips for staying safe online

 

People avoiding the shops and shopping online will also be in search of a good deal may also save some money on their Christmas shopping – but they are warned to be wary too.

Record numbers of people will be shopping online and cyber-crime is likely to be rife. Cyber criminals are expected to steal more than £18.5million over the period, according to statistics released by comparethemarket.com

Their methods include hacking into devices using insecure WiFi networks, phishing emails and infected websites.

Stephen Wright, General Manager of the National Cyber Skills Centre, said: “Black Friday has become Britain’s biggest shopping day.

“Unfortunately, it means consumers are often targeted by criminals but there are things that you can do to prevent online fraud.

“Much of the advice we give to businesses attending courses at the National Cyber Skills Centre also applies in the personal lives of their employees.

“As we all get more connected there is a blurring of our lives between home, commuting and work.”

Dr Ken Pollock, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Economy and Infrastructure, said: “We aim to be the ‘go-to’ county for businesses looking for cyber support and we are already leading the way at the National Cyber Skills Centre.

“The work being done at the Cyber Skills Centre is helping businesses and individuals in the County to protect themselves from cyber-attacks. We all need to be extra vigilant on Black Friday when spending money online.”
