Cyber-security during coronvirus
The Covid-19 pandemic is changing the way we all live and work.
UK businesses are becoming increasingly reliant on technology at home in order to connect with staff and customers remotely, and with that dependence comes an increased risk of cyber-attacks and those seeking to capitalise on the crisis.
Opportunistic hackers are using this time of uncertainly to exploit any vulnerabilities in our systems as well as prey on our fears about the virus with email scams and false information.
Information security is the protection of information from a wide range of threats in order to ensure business continuity and it has never been more vital. Maintaining good cyber hygiene, verifying sources and using official updates can also help businesses stay safe.
