  • Remember your passwords using password managers
  • How to use two-factor authentication
  • How to update your digital devices
  • How to back up your data
  • Recognise email scams and fake emails

These topics were chosen in line with the National Cyber Security Centre Cyber Aware 6 Actions as part of their new project, aiming to widen access to online security messaging.
