As you are aware there was a recent serious cyber-attack on the HSE, which has been described as sophisticated high level fraud.
Digital, or online, fraud has become more prevalent, and the older generation has now become a prime target for this area of criminality.
We all need to understand the implications of this, and our best defence is to stay informed and alert. Below is a short document from Age Action which has some good information to help you defend yourself in this area. There is also a site is called Fraud Smart, which is operated by the Irish Banking and Payments Federation – you can click this link https://www.fraudsmart.ie/personal/fraud-scams/ and go to the Personal section for good advice.
Our new adage is – Stay Safe and Stay Secure – take steps to be safe and steps to be secure in your on-line activities.
