EVERYONE is at risk to some degree, not just Businesses

The NCA is urging members of the public to protect themselves against powerful malicious software (malware), which may be costing UK computer users £ms.  Action taken by the NCA to combat the threat will give the UK public a unique opportunity to rid & safeguard themselves from 2 distinct but associated forms of malware known as GOZeuS and CryptoLocker.

 Members of the public can protect themselves by making sure security software is installed & updated, by running scans and checking that computer operating systems & applications are up to date.   Get Safe Online is providing advice, guidance & tools on its website at www.getsafeonline.org/nca to help internet users understand more about the malicious software and how to protect themselves and their computers from attacks.  A number of cyber security companies have supplied remediation tools, which can be accessed via Get Safe Online, to help clean up infected machines.
