To kick off CyberScotland Week 2024 CyberScotland’s DIGI Ken? campaign has returned showcasing three new videos focused on password safety and securing data.

CyberScotland Week is filled with events focused on building cyber awareness and resilience across Scotland. There will be a rich array of education and training activities taking place throughout the week. Find out how you can get involved in the week by attending or hosting events on the official CyberScotland Week page.

The new DIGI Ken? videos are based on the NCSC’s Cyber Aware guidance related to backing up your data, saving passwords in your browser or using a password manager and the importance of using a strong and separate password for your email.

Each video breaks down the simple ways in which you can strengthen your cyber security

Backup Your Data

A backup is a copy of your important data that’s stored in a separate safe location, usually on the internet (known as cloud storage), or on removable media (such as USB stick, SD card, or external hard drive). If you lose access to your original data, having a backup created will allow you to restore a copy of it.

Save Passwords in Your Browser or Use a Password Manager

It’s important to have a strong password and to not use the same password for every account. However, this can make it difficult to remember every password that you create.

A password manager or a web browser can store all of your passwords securely, so you don’t have to worry about remembering them. This allows you to use unique, strong passwords for all your important accounts (rather than using the same password for all of them, which you should never do).

Use a Strong and Separate Password for Your Email

Having a strong and separate password is especially important for your e-mail account. If you’ve used the same password across different accounts, cyber criminals only need one password to access all your accounts.

Giving your email account a strong and separate password means that if cyber criminals steal the password for one of your less-important accounts, they can’t use it to access your email account stopping them from gaining access to more sensitive information.

Protect yourself online and follow the advice today.
