The Home Office – CyberStreetWise

Through the Home Office, the UK Government has launched a new website focused around online security. The below screen-grab shows some of the useful information and advice available on the site, which allows you to select your perspective – business or personal.

From how to protect your child online to  setting a strong password and avoiding online scams and phishing emails the site is highly informative and well worth a visit.

Sophos who provided security expertise for the £4m campaign also provide the University’s Antivirus software. This kind of software is essential for protecting your computer from viruses and malware and is freely available for all Cardiff University staff and students to use on their personal computers. It takes only a few minutes to download and install and is available at this page
