    • Extent of Online Hacker Tutorial RevealedCPP’s top tips on protecting your information from hackers:1. Change your passwords regularly - the longer and more obscure, the better2. Leave a website if you notice strange behaviour (unknown certificates, pop-ups etc.)3. Avoid transmitting sensitive data over public (free or otherwise) Wi-Fi4. When seeking Wi-Fi connections: know who you are connecting to, be wary of free Wi-Fi access5. If using a smartphone: disable Wi-Fi ‘auto-connect’6. If you are concerned about identity fraud, consider purchasing an identity fraud protection product to help you detect, prevent and resolve any incidence of the fraud
    • Extent of Online Hacker Tutorial RevealedThe Golden Rule is that unless you know your connection is secure, donot communicate any information or data that you wouldn’t feelcomfortable shouting across a crowded room.
    • Extent of Online Hacker Tutorial RevealedRobert Chapman, CEO of Firebrandtraining.co.uk, who CPPcommissioned to carry out the tutorial said:“The wide availability of free hacking tools is a real concern, andeveryone is a target. These resources are only going to grow andbecome more advanced, meaning that organisations and individualsmust take steps to protect themselves.It’s imperative to keep anti-virus and firewall software up to date andchange passwords to online accounts regularly. Also use common sense– if security warning messages appear in your browser, don’t ignorethem as this could be an indicator that your network has been hacked.We demonstrated how a very basic way of hacking could be used tosteal millions of pounds from the unprepared.”
