Valuable information like research data, study results and other privacy sensitive data needs to be protected. Whether the data is stored on paper, in IT systems or wherever; anything valuable should be kept safe.
Good IT-security starts at the basis; with firewalls, virus detection and such. But the threats constantly change. Were viruses ever the number one treat; nowadays malware and phishing are popular with cybercriminals. Even your online identity can be stolen. Stay alert, stick to the rules and take your own precautions to work ‘cyber safe’.
