Cyber Security Awareness Month: Safe browsing and social media
As the last week of our Cyber Security Awareness Month campaign, we'll be talking about browsing safely online as well as staying secure on social media.
Shop only from reputable sites, and make sure the sites use a secure checkout.
Check if the URL begins with https, as this is far more secure than a http URL.
Avoid clicking on any random pop-ups too, as there's a strong likelihood that these could contain viruses.
Think about what you are sharing on social networks - stop and consider if you should be posting your personal information on your profiles.
If you have any queries about staying safe online, contact IT Services by emailing IT.Services@lboro.ac.uk.
