It comes as no surprise that we are currently spending more time online in our personal and professional lives than ever before. Did you know that this applies to cyber criminals? The increased use of email, online payments, virtual meetings, and improved access to loans and innovation grants has brought great benefits to businesses, but it comes with risk of falling victim to cyber criminals. Online security is as important as physical security. Even the smallest of businesses are a valuable target to cyber criminals.
That is why today, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has launched the latest Cyber Aware campaign – a cross government campaign designed to help keep us secure online.
The campaign is delivered in partnership with Cabinet Office, Home Office and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS).
At the heart of the Cyber Aware campaign are six practical actions that will help protect your business from the majority of the most common cyber attacks.
