What are the risks online and do you really need to know?

If you're like most people, you resign when it comes to staying informed and alert about online threats.

What matters to you is that you are protected against any and all online threats. The details of how are not so important.

And that's fine. With a good internet security software product you can let someone else - someone like BullGuard, say - worry about that.


All the same, you might be curious to know a bit more about what online crime entails, and perhaps learn what all the words you keep hearing actually mean – words like 'spam', 'spim', 'spomments', 'virus', 'phishing' and 'keylogging'.

Here, we have collected a bunch of articles explaining what it's all about.

So next time you're at a dinner party, you won't have to resort to nodding knowingly – you can actually make insightful comments about the nature of the beast!
