International Computer Safety Day

Thursday 30th November, is Computer Security Day. Computer Security Day began in 1988, around the time when computers were becoming commonplace. These days, electronic devices such as smartphone, tablets and computers make up an important component of our everyday lives. For this reason, we need to be more vigilante about privacy and security.

So keep your data safe and secure, by taking a few simple steps:

  • Limit what you share
  • Create strong passwords
  • Regularly update your software
  • Backup important information
  • Avoid online scams
