Cyber security is absolutely vital to you and your organisation. Cyber security protects you against viruses, phishing attacks, hackers, and all sorts of online threats. The National Cyber Security Centre which is part of GCHQ has established the Cyber Essentials scheme to help organisations of all sizes understand how to secure their IT. This includes:

  1. Use a Firewall to protect your internet connection

  2. Make sure your device settings give you the maximum security including the use of passwords and changing any default passwords

  3. Control who has access to your systems and devices

  4. Protect yourself from viruses and malware

  5. Make sure you apply patches and updates

These are all pretty simple precautions, but they are essential measures to protect your company from potentially disastrous attacks. If you outsource your IT support you should ask your supplier whether you are Cyber Essentials compliant.

Good luck all!
