Cyber Security doesn't have to be difficult

Cyber Made Simple suggests:

Use strong and unique passwords

It's important to use strong passwords for all your online accounts and to avoid reusing the same password across multiple accounts. Make sure to use a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols, and avoid using common phrases or personal information that could be easily guessed or obtained through social engineering attacks.

Be cautious with email and attachments

Phishing attacks are a common way for hackers to gain access to personal information or install malware on your computer. Be wary of emails from unknown senders or that contain suspicious links or attachments, and avoid clicking on them unless you are certain they are safe

Keep your software up to date

Make sure to keep all your software, including your operating system, web browser, and antivirus software, up to date with the latest security patches and updates. These updates often include fixes for known vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers

Enable two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication (2FA) adds an extra layer of security to your online accounts by requiring a second form of authentication in addition to your password, such as a fingerprint scan or a code sent to your phone. This can help prevent unauthorized access even if your password is compromised

Use a VPN

A virtual private network (VPN) can help protect your privacy and security by encrypting your internet connection and hiding your IP address. This can be especially important when using public Wi-Fi networks, which are often unsecured and vulnerable to attacks. Make sure to use a reputable VPN provider and to follow their best practices for secure usage

Implementing the appropriate level of security for a business can be a challenging task. Due to the unique nature of each business, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. However, a layered defence is often the most reliable strategy.

  • Secure your customers’ data.
  • Keep abreast of the ever-changing threat landscape.
  • Ensure your suppliers comply with UK Law.
  • Maintain a security system that balances the risk & cost of protection.
