“There was a time when people felt the internet was another world, but now people realise it's a tool that we use in this world.” - Tim Berners-Lee.  The internet and World Wide Web has become an essential utility in a digital economy.  It is used to connect, communicate, create and share information by individuals, businesses and the Government.  New and innovative business and Government services have made transactions more efficient and convenient.  However, with these conveniences come dangers which users must be aware of so they can take precautions against.
