With over 3 billion people online in 2017, individual and organisational security on the internet is a growing concern.

It is a known fact that information sent over the internet or by email is not necessarily secure. The internet contains billions of websites with more being created every day, and there are even more emails daily.

Recently, 'HTTP' protocols aren't even considered safe and secure anyway, as they have become more increasingly at risk of being intercepted by hackers. Even information and passwords sent via standard, unencrypted wireless are especially easy for hackers to intercept nowadays.

It is important for your employees to understand the risks to help maintain the cyber security and information security of your organisation.
