It’s a common misconception that cyber criminals only target public figures, governments and big companies. The reality is that everyone has something of value to a cyber criminal – such as your bank details and personal data.
Developed by the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA), the ‘Live Savvy with Cybersecurity’ campaign is a national cybersecurity awareness campaign which aims to spread the message about the importance of protecting ourselves online and at the same time, present information and tips to enable us to better safeguard our digital assets.

Dangers in the Cyber World
Cyber threats are growing in frequency and sophistication by the day and while Singapore is regarded as a safe country, the same cannot be said of the World Wide Web which is borderless. Just as we lock our doors to prevent break-ins, we should similarly take steps to protect ourselves from cyber criminals.
Cyber-attacks are taking place every day, perhaps even every minute. According to reports, there were over one million web attacks against people each and every day in 2015.
So what are some common cyber threats?
Prevention is key in the fight against cyber threats and practising good cyber hygiene will ensure that we keep our devices and information safe. By doing so, we are taking responsibility for our cybersecurity and doing our part to create a safer cyberspace.
