Cyber Security for Small Businesses
At Online Support, we like to make the effort to ensure every small business is working as efficiently and effectively as possible.
With this in mind, we thought it would be useful to share a few tips based on a government cyber security guide for small businesses.
Using technology and connecting to the internet of course has its benefits – but also bring with it some risks.
Every day, very real cyber attacks have an impact on small businesses.
With a responsibility to safeguard these small businesses, the UK’s government has produced guidelines detailing out exactly how you can minimise risk within your organisation.
The basic summary of their advice is:
- Get the basics right
- Take a risk management approach
A major part of managing the risks is understanding them. It gives you a huge element of control over your network. If you can implement an usage policy succesfully you can create a solid foundation for a more reliable network.
