Cyber Security Awareness

Alert message sent 05/11/2019 11:05:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thanks to Eric Hambling, NHW Administrator for Wycombe, for this message

At the recent open meeting of the Wycombe District Neighbourhood Watch Association we were fortunate to have a very informative presentation on Cyber Protection by Mark Godsland, Police Cyber Security Advisor.

“Cyber security is the means by which individuals and organisations reduce the risk of being affected by cyber crime.

Cyber security's core function is to protect the devices we all use (smartphones, laptops, tablets and computers), and the services we access online - both at home and work - from theft or damage. It's also about preventing unauthorised access to the vast amounts of personal information we store on these devices, and online.

Cyber security is important because smartphones, computers and the internet are now such a fundamental part of modern life, that it's difficult to imagine how we'd function without them. From online banking and shopping, to email and social media, it's more important than ever to take steps that can prevent cyber criminals getting hold of our accounts, data, and devices.”

For those of you who were unable to attend our meeting, the National Cyber Security Centre Website has a lot of useful information about staying secure online and the link below is for the page specifically aimed at individuals and families.

I would encourage you to visit their site as making some minor changes to the way that we operate online could result in a major improvement to our personal security.
