In the same way that you protect your possessions, you also need to secure your cyber environment from potential threats. This means making sure that you secure your device by installing anti-virus software and software patches and updates when required. You also need to be on the lookout for spam and phishing. Report any potential cyber security threats to the UCT CSIRT who will take the appropriate action. ICTS regularly publishes information designed to help you protect yourself against cyber-attacks and we also offer cyber security training.
