The global pandemic has resulted in a seismic shift towards remote working, creating millions of home offices across the UK where hours are spent communicating via online platforms like Zoom or Teams.
However, a recent report by Fasthosts found that two in five remote workers in the UK are vulnerable to cyber-attacks as they have not received information about how to avoid COVID-19 scams or had any video call security training.
We have wrapped up a little book of guidance for all our current members and for any new members who join us in the form of latest version of ‘The Little Book of Scams’.
It is full of invaluable tools and tips to help you make your business more cyber resilient and in doing so protect your customers valuable data. The Little Book of Scams is a practical guide for business owners and will help you:
Spot the early signs of an active attack
Keep your staff up to date with the latest scams
Check your business email addresses to see if they have been compromised
Check the sender email address on an email without clicking on any links
Make your staff aware of CEO fraud which could cost you large sums of money
Understand what personal information about you is available online and how it could be used by a cybercriminal
Avoid you and your staff getting caught out using public Wi-Fi
Report cybercrime the right way
