Great talk today about cyber security form Jenny Williams. Jenny told us about all sorts of risks faced by business along with techniques for reducing them. For instance
Risk: Ransomware – often targetted at small companies. Staff sometimes not bothered, maybe not thinking and they click on a bad link leading to all the company files being encrypted.
Solution: Do regular and good back ups. Watch out for key logger after a ransomeware attack.
Risk: Free Wi-if
Solution is vpn on phone
Risk: USB sticks left lying around. Loaded with malicious software
Solution: Don’t use them!!
