As the digital age becomes increasingly integrated into our daily lives, protecting our devices and data is becoming more crucial. From baby monitors and smartwatches to cryptocurrency and digital wallets our connected technology is vulnerable to cyber attacks that can result in ransomware attacks as well as data breaches, among other devastating effects. This is why it’s vital to know the basics of security in digital devices so that you can shield yourself and your family from these threats.

Digital security is the collection of tools and best practices that help improve protection from online threats that could damage cybersecurity resilience through proactive measures or compromise your personal or business information. It provides a variety of tools that can help you safeguard your privacy and security online, ranging from antivirus software to password managers. It also requires you to take steps to keep your devices and apps updated and safe, and adopting a standard “cyber hygiene” routine.

The security of confidential information is a major concern at every level of society from government agencies that protect state secrets to businesses which rely on the information of customers and their products. People who work in digital security need to be awe-inspiring, competitive and willing to continue learning to keep up with the fast-changing field.

The OECD is an international partner who actively is promoting policies in the area digital security. These policies are designed to increase trust without harming the benefits of digital transformation. Our work on digital security takes place through the OECD Working Party on Security in the Digital Economy and the Committee on Digital Economy Policy.
