Get Safe Online Week 19-24 October

get_safe_online_weekThe UK public has been left feeling vulnerable following an increase in highly personalised cybercrimes. In a specially commissioned survey* for this, our tenth annual Get Safe Online Week, over one in five (21%) victims of a cybercrime believe they were specifically targeted by fraudsters and over a third (37%) were left feeling vulnerable as a result. Only 38% of the victims believed that the incident was down to bad luck and over half (57%) think it’s becoming much easier to fall victim to an online crime.

Today’s cybercriminal has the technology and ingenuity to watch and wait for you to reveal too much information. You could be targeted, however careful you think you’ve been on the internet, or on the phone.
