What is cyber security?

The subject of cyber security has become very topical, not least because of the dependency we all have on information and communications technologies.

Not only have criminals been using cyberspace to hack into firms, or to launch ‘denial of service’ attacks, but employees and customers are also at risk in terms of identity theft, financial fraud and even harassment.

 The risks from cybercrime are becoming ever more sophisticated and the proliferation of mobile devices, cloud services and social media only increases our exposure.  We have no choice but to engage with these technologies and it is therefore awareness of risk, rather than risk avoidance, that offers the best prospects for effective risk control.

This section of our website has been designed to kick start that awareness raising process by providing simple resources and links to others for those new to the topic.
