Christmas is a time where many of us wind down and take time away to spend with the nearest and dearest. However, this is also a time where cyber attackers plan their next attacks on organisations, taking advantage of people being away from work and leaving their businesses unmanned.
Implementing cyber security within your business is an essential and effective way of keeping your data secure. With cyber attacks on the rise, it has never been more apparent why you need cyber security. The cyber essentials scheme provides your business with a framework which will protect your business from some of the most common types of cyber threats.
IoT has particularly become very popular during the pandemic as a way to reduce contact between people. IoT refers to all devices that are connected to the internet. It also provides you with the opportunity to control other devices remotely.
Cloud computing security refers to a set of procedures, technologies, policies and controls that all work with one another to protect data and infrastructure in the cloud against external and internal cyber security threats.
Cyber Essentials is a scheme backed by the Government aiming to help businesses and organisations alike to be protected against a range of cyber attacks. Cyber criminals target all types of businesses, whatever their size, which is why it is so important to have an infrastructure in place that is designed to keep your business safe.
Now is the time to become cyber aware and keep up with cyber security. Many SME’s are failing at some of the most basic cyber security procedures and as the threats are becoming more advanced and less targeted, your business could be at risk. There isn’t a single solution to providing 100% protection by itself against cyber attacks but the risk can be minimised and reduced through discipline, education and management alongside using sophisticated cyber security practises.
