The more time we spend online, the more thoughtful I become about how we approach connecting to this wonderful, virtual world. In the next two episodes, with the help of my guests, I will be exploring what impact an unsafe use of the internet can bring, what we should be aware of and how we could better navigate online to feel safer, more protected and more in control.
Today, I start by tackling the challenge of online safety. To help me with this, I am joined by a brilliant speaker and cyber security expert, Gareth Thomas. A big part of his job is keeping up-to-date with the latest cyber security threats, making sure the risks are considered, mitigation plans are in place and everyone across the organisation is educated and knows what to do.
We all have heard that prevention is better than any fix. It also remains true when it comes to the online world that many of us are connected to 24/7. Gareth shares a number of fascinating examples of what can happen when things go wrong, and shares key tips we all should be aware of to keep ourselves and our businesses safe, and our minds less anxious.
