Last week, McAfee released its annual "12 Scams of Christmas" list to increase awareness of the ways in which cyber criminals look to exploit the public during the holiday period.

"The potential for identity theft increases as consumers share personal information across multiple devices that are often under protected," said Michelle Dennedy, vice president and chief privacy officer at McAfee. "Understanding criminals’ mindsets and being aware of how they try to take advantage of consumers can help ensure that we use our devices the way they were intended – to enhance our lives, not jeopardize them."

Defence IQ has produced this infographic of McAfee’s list to help you stay safe online this Christmas.
