Essentially, it involves the duplication of critical components within a network to provide backup in case of failure.

Guarding Your Digital Secrets: The Importance of Data Privacy

As I said on air today, its been ‘Safer Internet Day’ this week in Australia.For me, we should think about being safer on the internet every day, and to support that we will be including information on advice on how to be safer on the internet right here, each week. 

This week I am talking to Norton about data privacy, how it plays a vital role in protecting individuals from various forms of cyber threats and identity theft. Personal data such as usernames, passwords, and financial information are valuable assets for cybercriminals seeking to exploit vulnerabilities for financial gain or malicious intent. By implementing robust data privacy measures, organizations can help prevent data breaches and unauthorized access, safeguarding individuals’ sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands.

Let us know if the webinar helps you and what topics you would like us to cover over the coming weeks and months, as we support this area of your digital life. 

Watch this in-depth webinar as we talk about the importance of data privacy.
