Protecting You From Hackers is More Important than Ever

Protecting You From Hackers Is More Important Than Ever

A couple of weeks ago, we gave a Cyber Security talk for Shropshire Partners in Care, to protect the care industry from being hacked.

With a hacker attack happening every 39 seconds, this topic is fast becoming a vital part of staying safe online, especially in the care industry, where vigilance is more important than ever.

Now, in light of everything that is going on with COVID-19, hackers are trying their luck to target people’s vulnerabilities at this time and gain access to your data, and we’re not having it!

We’re here to ensure that the care industry, alongside you, your family and your business remain protected.

We’re here to keep you safe

We get it. Being hacked is something you think will never happen to you and we really wish that were the case. However, with everything we do now being online, hacking is only going to become more of a problem. That’s why the right IT solutions are crucial.

We want to present the right information to you in a way that’s both easy to understand and implement. No technical jargon, just straightforward support.

How we’re helping the care industry

The talk we provided for the care industry covered five crucial topics, including how best to educate staff members, to properly filtering emails and installing the correct anti-virus software.

How this will help your business

 Due to the current circumstances, Cyber Security is more important than ever.

With all companies currently using email to communicate their preventative measures against COVID-19, hackers are now sending phishing emails, pretending to do the same to gain access to your information.

So, here’s some tips on how to spot a phishing email:-

  • Look out for obvious typos and poor grammar
  • The email will often demand quick action and response time
  • The email is likely to be push you towards clicking a link they have provided
  • Emails look similar to confirmed addresses but will be slightly different

Make sure you check and double check an email’s authenticity before clicking any links or providing any of your details. If you’re unsure, just call us, we’re here to help.

Here’s to keeping you, your business and your family safe!
