Following Friday's global 'ransomware' cyber attack, police are reminding the public and business community of the importance of operating safely online.

They are advised to:

* Ensure that anti-virus software is installed on your computer, that it is running and is up to date.

* Avoid opening unsolicited emails from people or organisations you do not know/trust.

* Avoid visiting websites that your anti-virus software warns you about.

* Not use file sharing sites or pirated software as these are rife with malware.

The national fraud intelligence bureau has released this GUIDANCE
