What's it about?

We all have different resolutions this January, be it clearing our debts, giving up smoking, reducing waste, getting fit etc. See our full list in the New Year Resolutions Hub.

But one resolution we don't hear people making often is to do more to keep yourself and your family safe online.

If you've bought a new tablet, laptop etc in the January Sales or got one for Christmas it's hugely important they're fully protected. We want to encourage everyone to make it one of their resolutions for 2015.

Our latest BeCyberStreetwise as a New Year Resolution blog may help.
