Three things to do today to make your business safer from online criminals

1. #SecureYourAccount with guidance from ActionFraud

Action Fraud is the National Fraud & Cyber Crime Reporting Centre. Following a large number of hacking reports in the past year, the organisation is encouraging us all to strengthen our passwords and turn on two-factor authentication for our social media accounts. Take a look at our blog post this week and visit Action Fraud’s website to learn how to do this: https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/secureyouraccounts


2. Check your digital footprint

According to the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), “Attackers use publicly available information about your organisation and staff to make their phishing messages more convincing”. Think about whether you could reduce what’s available so that if your staff do receive phishing emails, they will be less likely to click the link.


3. Download the Small Business Guide

Did you know that if you run a small business, there are a wealth of free resources on the NCSC’s website to help you gradually increase your resilience against cyber attacks? By taking one section at a time, you can significantly reduce the chances that your company is hit by criminals: https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/collection/small-business-guide


By taking these simple steps, you can help protect the future of your business.
