Are you as protected online as you think? – Internet Security and Staying Safe Online

Your data is precious to you - and to hackers!

More data than you may think is stored on your computer. Each website you visit leaves a 'Cookie' on your computer. A cookie is a small file which contains information about the website you are visiting.

They are not all bad - They are what makes a website remember that you have been there before.
As an example, going to Facebook and you are already logged in - That's because of a Cookie.

Cookies can slow down your computer if you do not delete them regularly and can help hackers into your personal data.

An antivirus, although much needed, does not offer you protection on the day-to-day use of your computer. Common threats are turning towards malware, unwanted programmes to force advertising and the dreaded ransomware - Where your files are encrypted (Password protected) by hackers and held ransom asking for a fee to be paid.

So, as with anything, prevention is cheaper than cure and can save you downtime, along with the knowledge that your files are protected from these attacks.
