Staying Safe Online

October is Get Online Week and although many of us spend a lot of time online, we don’t all have the skills to ensure we are safe. 

There are many ways that our safety is threatened and the means by which scammers etc do so can be much more subtle. 

It is important for our safety and that of our families, that we keep up-to-date on the risks we face and the ways we identify and deal with them.
