Delta is proud to be a partner for Cyber Smart Week this week, an initiative from Cert NZ designed to raise awareness of the cyber risks out there and giving some handy hints for individuals, companies and IT specialists to protect themselves and their businesses online.
As the Cyber Smart website says:
Cyber attacks are becoming more and more frequent over time, and they can affect anyone. It’s not just large organisations or businesses who are being attacked — smaller businesses and everyday New Zealanders are at risk too.
Many cyber attacks aren’t specifically targeting any one person or business. Instead, attackers look for easy ways to gather as much personal information online as they can, and then use it to exploit people’s weaknesses and vulnerabilities. They’re not picky about who they target. That’s why you need to do everything you can to protect yourself.
Think of securing your online self like you’d secure your home. You wouldn’t lock the front and back door of your house, then go out and leave the bathroom window wide open — anyone could get inside. It’s the same online. You need to make sure you plug any gaps in your security to make sure you’re not leaving your bathroom window open online either.
Luckily, there are a few simple changes you can make that will help you protect your personal information online. Follow the 4 steps and secure your online self this Cyber Smart Week.
