Complete online at your own pace (Self-paced)
From banking to shopping, and streaming to social media, people are spending more time than ever online.
This means more opportunities for hackers to carry out cyber attacks. They often do this by targeting people and businesses using:
- email and website scams
- malware – software that can damage your device or let a hacker in
If hackers get into your device or accounts, they could access your money, your personal information, or information about your business.
The NCSC’s (National Cyber Security Centre) Cyber Aware campaign gives 6 actions that you can take to stay safe and secure online. LEAD Scotland has put this advice into accessible formats to help everybody to be able to understand and follow them.
