“Cyber security and working from home”

Protecting your personal data, that of your family and that of your company by applying
basic security tools and techniques

The current global COVID 19 pandemic has resulted in many more people working from home. This has increased the cyber risks to both individuals and companies. The crisis is being
used by hackers to exploit those more vulnerable and less cyber aware. It is also targeting those companies whose cyber defence’s are not as strong as they should be or whose cyber
capabilities are reduced due to the impact of the virus.

What is cyber security, why is it a problem?

Why is home working a challenge for us and an opportunity for hackers?

Basic cyber security hygiene to protect you, your family and company.
