Information comes in many different electronic and hard copy forms. It can be created, stored, edited, disseminated, transported, copied, printed and deleted in many different ways, and on many different devices.

Protecting information is simple. All you need to do is learn the best way to undertake these activities, and our new information security awareness programme Think secure is here to help.

Over the coming months, we will focus on a range of topics such as emailing, browsing and travelling with information. We will explain the threats to information, and provide easy to follow guidance on how to protect it. The great news is that this guidance can be used to protect your own personal information as well, helping you to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of identity theft.  

To begin with, we’ve identified five key rules that will help you to protect Royal Mail Group’s information. Click on the links below to read more, and keep them in mind at all times. You may also find them useful for protecting your own and your family’s data as well.
