Short summary 

Working in the civic space means you are potentially exposed to a wide variety of risks. These can range from network security risks to privacy risks to behavioural cyber-risks. And while you may be aware of some of them, you might feel unprepared to tackle them – especially considering that cyber threats continually evolve. The ways in which your privacy and security can be compromised by criminal, corporate or state activity are multiplying and becoming more and more complex. By taking some essential steps, you can become less vulnerable and protect your digital activity.
