Browsing the Internet safely

By Staff

The Internet has become one of your most powerful tools for many tasks, such as searching for information, communicating with friends and co-workers, shopping online and managing your finances.

In almost all of these cases, the primary tool you use is your browser, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari or Firefox. Your browser is in many ways your gateway to the Internet. It is also the top target for cyber-criminals. By protecting your browser, you protect yourself against many of today’s attacks.

For details on how to browse the Internet safely, see the February 2012 Office of Information Security Cyber Security newsletter.
