With around 92% of the UK population regularly using the internet - whether on a desktop computer, tablet, laptop or smartphone - protecting against online risk is becoming increasingly important.

Being connected to the internet opens your devices up to potential cyber-attacks. Cyber-security describes the actions you can take to reduce your risk, keeping the data you hold safe and secure.
