Cybersecurity is not just a tick-box exercise – the stakes are too high. For public and private organisations handling data, leaders need to be reticent of threats to communication streams and the ways cybercriminals will steal information.

Cybersecurity 101s for companies include:

“Getting the right skills and training arranged for employees at all levels. Training is the number one form of defence to block threats at the door. With cyber training, being wary of phishing attempts operating through fake emails and messages is critical.

“Alongside scam awareness, one of the best methods of protection is regularly updating passwords and ensuring they are unique and long, and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) can also add an extra layer of defence here. 

“Finally, keeping devices and apps updated also helps patch over new vulnerabilities that cyber criminals might be looking to exploit.
