Your online safety

As the festive season draws closer, most of us are busy preparing for the big day and maybe anticipating a few days off work to enjoy time with friends and family.

These days, a lot of this preparation involves spending time online – whether it’s shopping for gifts or items to dress up the house, ordering our festive food, inviting people round for the day by email, sending and receiving online cards or chatting about our plans, or what we got for Christmas.
