Backup your data

Ensure all your operating systems and software are up to date. Do this weekly, or even better, turn on automatic updates.

Educate your staff on the dangers of suspicious communications such as phishing scams and strange emails or text messages. And, where possible, report them.

Anti-virus on every device is extremely important. Can’t afford it? A lot of Anti-virus software providers offer free packages. Make sure your team has one installed, free or paid for.

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is hard for cybercriminals to crack and it’s far safer than using just a password. So ensure all online accounts are using this. A tool like Google Authenticator is free and works with most 2FA enabled websites.

In case there’s a breach, you’ll want to have your business up and running quickly. For this, you will need to make sure you have up-to-date backups. Many cloud providers, such as AWS and Microsoft, offer free tiers for doing so.

Note from our CEO

“These are unprecedented, challenging times and I believe we will only make it through by bringing the business community together and supporting each other. As cyber threats increase, all businesses, supply chains and national security are at risk. We must ensure everyone is equipped to fight off these threats, and that starts with the basics .”
