Which? response to Government report on cyber security

Which? response to the latest Government report that warns that millions of people are “vastly underestimating” the “very real” threat of being hit by computer hackers.

Alex Neill, Which? Managing Director of Home Products and Services, said:

“With cybercrime on the rise, even the savviest people can be scammed. While there are important steps people can take, far too much responsibility is being placed on consumers to identify and protect themselves from increasingly sophisticated fraudsters.

“The Government’s Joint Fraud Taskforce must do more to set out what critical agencies and businesses can do to prevent fraud and protect consumers.”
