Our top tips for protecting yourself and your business against cyber security:

  • Ensure you keep you software up to date, as updates often contain vital security updates to secure the software​
  • Implement security awareness training with your employees to help them increase both their own personal security, but also helping to significantly reduce your organisation’s risk
  • Ensure cyber-security is a regular topic for discussion at board level
  • Implement simulated phishing exercises with your employees (the vast majority of attacks still occur via phishing emails, so it is a good way to identify any areas requiring additional training or support)
  • Demand information from suppliers and partners about their cyber-security measures and consider any obvious weaknesses as a back-door into your own organisation
  • Aim for continuous improvement in security, rather than annual reviews or upgrades, as cyber-crime evolves quickly – make it part of the culture of your business.
