Campaign to help online shoppers fight festive fraud

The NCSC launches a new Cyber Aware campaign aimed at helping people shop securely online this Christmas

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) – a part of GCHQ – today launched a major government advertising campaign called Cyber Aware, outlining six key behaviours to protect accounts and devices from the majority of online crime.
