Prevent Identity Theft Online

Identity theft can happen when you least expect it. According to the UK’s fraud protection service approximately “80% of identity fraud in the first three months of this year was either attempted or perpetrated online, with many of us unwittingly leaving ourselves exposed” (Wright, 2015).
Now you may be thinking it will never happen to me. WRONG! Without taking the correct security measures you will be leaving yourself vulnerable to thieves over the internet. This taster session will provide you with a starting point of what you need to know and do in order to protect yourself from such instances.
