Get Ready to Get Safe Online

The theme for Get Safe Online Week, taking place from 23rd to 27th October, will be phishing


Get Safe Online Logo 2017Get Safe Online Week is one of the campaigns organised by Get Safe Online, a public / private sector partnership supported by HM Government and leading organisations in banking, retail, internet security and other sectors.

To help raise awareness of the year’s Get Safe Online Week, the focus will be on phishing as it is an online safety issue that has started to affect digital natives as well as the older generation.

Phishing scams are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and are fooling the savviest internet users. But younger generations, i.e. millennials, still think they’re invincible when it comes to online scams.

Digital natives think they are impervious; some don’t even know what phishing is because they are so complacent! They think they can spot a scam a mile off and that phishing is only to do with banking fraud. They believe phishing is perpetrated by hackers and computer experts – not everyday people. Most importantly they think it’s something that only happens to your nan.

Further details about Get Safe Online week will be brought to you in the coming days.
