We had fourteen clients and business contacts join us for our Insights seminar last week.
I was speaking once again, with an update on cybersecurity and best practices to prevent your business falling victim to the bad guys.
The main lesson remains, that the ultimate defence against phishing and fraud is to be found in good computer habits from all of your colleagues. Technical measures like firewalls and email filtering are effective and necessary but they are not enough by themselves.
Changing working habits isn’t always easy because our industry has spent twenty years making computers easy to use. Knowing, for example, when you’re seeing search results in Chrome and when you’re seeing the website you thought you were going to is important.
To give one example, most of us now renew our car tax online directly with the DVLA. But if we unknowingly run a search for DVLA car tax we’re also going to be shown the very plausible scam sites which will take our money and might, or might not, tax our car.
Basic stuff, yes, but often forgotten and dangerous for your wallet.
With a Service Agreement from Excellimore you and your colleagues will be guided and trained in good computer practice. And, of course, supported with the best in technical cybersecurity as well.
