Cybercrime is a highly lucrative business; more than 12 million Britons have experienced cybercrime in the past year, according to the 2015 Norton Cyber Security Insight Report. Over the last year, UK consumers lost more than one working day (9 hours) dealing with the fallout from online crime and nearly £134 per person, totalling an estimated £1.6B across the nation.
One of the most effective ways consumers can protect themselves is by securing their personal devices with robust security technologies. In doing so they become better equipped to thwart cyberattacks.
Norton Security delivers multi-layered protection in an easy-to-use subscription service. Leveraging one of the world’s largest threat-monitoring networks, Norton Security helps defend against the most sophisticated attacks across multiple platforms including Windows PCs, Macs, Android smartphones and tablets, iPhones and iPads.
