Personal data is a strange commodity. Cyber thieves can buy huge quantities of personal data on the black market for very little, yet your own personal data is hugely valuable to you. If your personal data falls into the wrong hands, it could lead to identity theft, bank fraud or something even more sinister such as stalking. The severity of that threat is multiplied when it comes to the personal data of children, when threats such as internet grooming begin to emerge. The bad news is that children aren’t always great at safeguarding sensitive information, which is why they need parents’ help and guidance. That’s why we’ve created this guide to show you how you can protect your own and your family’s personal data.
In the guide, you’ll find tips on a number of potential risks such as sharing sensitive information, phishing attacks and social media visibility.
