Are the private pictures of the high-profile people in your organisation safe?

Updated: Jan 25

According to the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), personal photos from four female British athletes have been leaked online after criminals hacked into their iCloud accounts*


Think about the noteworthy figures in your organisation.


Would their private files be safe from malicious attacks?


With the lines between work and private life blurring during the pandemic, there is increased risk of such an incident taking place. Staff maybe using personal devices for work, and work devices for recreation. If this is the case in your company, could weak cyber security put your employees highly personal images or data in jeopardy?


Thankfully, there are steps you can take to reduce the risk of criminals accessing your teams’ private files. The NCSC recommends turning on two-factor authentication for extra protection. When you login to something like iCloud or Google Drive, you will be asked to type in a code sent to your phone or email address.


You should also try to use a strong password made up of three random words that you haven’t used for other accounts.
