Gone are the carefree days when people used the internet just for gathering information and sending email. Most are now venturing online to create and participate in full digital lives. Millions worldwide are using the internet to learn, research, shop, buy, bank, invest, play games, download movies and music, re-connect with old friends, meet new people, and do many other activities.

Though cyberspace is an exciting environment with a myriad of benefits, opportunities, and conveniences, it is also an increasingly risky one, with numerous new threats emerging daily. Any time you connect to the internet you are vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Hackers can steal your credit card numbers, tax records and passwords, or even completely disable your PC.


Most of us know how important it is to protect our personal information when we shop online, yet many of us continue to shop even when we suspect that a site might not be safe. In fact in a recent survey, McAfee found that 54% of people believe it is hard to tell if a site is safe to buy from.

Online Safety tips - 7 Tips on How to Protect Yourself Online
  1. Create smart and strong passwords for all personal and financial information.
  2. Use spam filters for email and avoid phishing scams.
  3. If possible, use a virtual credit card when shopping online. 
  4. Only shop from reputable merchants online.
  5. If a suspicious site is offering something for “free”, avoid it at all costs despite the temptation.
