Security essential for wireless broadband users

by Janet Harris

With online banking fraud on the increase, Get Safe Online has called for wireless broadband users to step up their security measures.

The UK Cards Association reported a 14 percent increase in online banking fraud in 2009, with £59.7 million lost as a result.

With cybercrime become more sophisticated, as well as more prevalent, Tony Neate, the managing director of Get Safe Online, emphasised the importance of anti-virus, spyware and operating system updates.

With more and more people using wireless broadband connections, Neate also emphasised that users should make sure that their connections are encrypted.

He also highlighted the danger of using other people’s wireless access points, as these may not be secure.
