Staying safe online

With the entire world on the internet these days, it’s no surprise that in the cyberworld – just like in the real world – there is a whole host of thieves and scam artists out there whose sole intention is to part you from your cash, sometimes legally, but usually illegally.

A whole array of security precautions has been designed to keep your online information safe, but too often people still fall prey to hackers either through ignorance or complacency. Everybody knows the ‘Nigerian prince’ email scam is exactly that – a scam – yet people still fall victim to it. It’s of the utmost importance to educate yourself as to just how to stay safe online, be it whether you’re conducting online banking or something as simple as posting on Facebook. Cyber thieves can rob you without you even knowing until it’s too late.

  • It may seem basic, but one of the most important ways to stay safe online is to set a secure password. Don’t make your password ‘123456’ or use your own name. Make it difficult for the cyber crooks by using a random combination of letters and numbers.
  • Another way to stay safe online is to never follow links to URL’s emailed to you. Physically enter your online bank’s web address rather than googling it, as hackers can replicate official looking sites right down to the smallest detail.
  • Never give out personal information on social media sites.
  • Never, ever use your credit card online if at an internet café or other public access internet point. You should take time to read to help guard yourself against private infringement online and keep those hackers at bay.

What you can feel secure about however, is that your business can reach a wider range of potential customers than normal if you sign up to the EWN Online Directory. Through categorisation and an informative business description, being part of an online directory makes it easier for customers to find you. It will put you head and shoulders above your competition and improve your online presence. Just as you should do all you can to stay secure online, you should do all you can to promote your business in today’s computer-driven world.
