7 BASIC TIPS FOR CYBER SECURITY
Install and update anti-viris software
Most devices come with anti-virus software. No matter what security solution you're using make sure it is turned on and the auto-update feature is on.
Beware dodgy email
If it looks dodgy, delete it. If don’t know the sender or it’s an email you weren’t expecting, do not click on links or attachments.
Use safe pa$$Words
Use a pass phrase of at least eight characters using a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols. Change passwords regularly and if you have to write them down somewhere, do not keep the record any where near the device.
Protect your devices
Always use identity settings (eg passwords, biometric identification) and use security settings (eg auto-lock) on your computer and mobile devices.
Back-up your files
Unless you've got an awesome IT department, use cloud services to store your files because they’ll back them up better than you’ll ever do.
Set cyber policies & procedures
Develop a cyber-security policy and set of procedures and keep it up-to-date. Make sure your staff understand what it all means.
