Is your data backed up and easily accessible? As part of your approach to business continuity, you need to back up your data.What happens if you can’t access core systems because of an attack or hardware failure?Having easily accessible copies of your data allows you to continue operating and helps safeguard against ransomware and system failures.Don’t be tempted to think it won’t happen to you. Many assume because they aren’t in a supply chain related to national defense, or energy or aren’t a large company with mountains of data, that they’re safe. They’re not. We have personally seen a small, local company fall victim to a ransomware attack, severely disrupting their business. Don't let it happen to you!#CyberSecurityAwarenessMonth #TeamZOOC #NewtonAbbot #Devon #ITSupport See MoreSee Less

Recent years have seen a rise in 'phishing’ that aims to acquire login credentials or other sensitive information. We regularly see fraudulent emails that cleverly mimic popular sites such as Office 365, Gmail, and PayPal, prompting users to log in to read a message, perhaps, or verify something.We are all human, and even the best people sometimes get things wrong (or click the wrong things!). If your environment is unsecured; where users have access to everything and use similar passwords across multiple accounts, you are providing scammers with more opportunity to gain access to sensitive information. Think outside the box – who else have you given access to? Does your accountant access your bookkeeping software? Or does a marketing freelancer look after your social media accounts? The buck doesn’t stop with your own team!Fortunately, there are things you can do right away to help safeguard your data; start by conducting a quick stock-take on ‘who’ can access ‘what’ and ensure that MFA (Multi-Factor Authentication) is enabled on all accounts.Data security doesn’t stop there, though! Need some help? We offer FREE IT health checks to all clients new to ZOOC – we'd be happy to guide you. #CyberSecurityAwarenessMonth #TeamZOOC #NewtonAbbot #Devon #ITSupport See MoreSee Less

Topic three is all about data management.If you run a small company, it is highly likely that your entire team has access to a lot of company information. Have you considered ‘who’ specifically needs to access ‘what’, and ‘why’? If not, your data is at a higher risk of being exposed. #CyberSecurityAwarenessMonth #TeamZOOC #NewtonAbbot #Devon #ITSupport See MoreSee Less

What is Phishing? 🐠‘Phishing’ is the fraudulent practice of sending messages to deceive individuals into revealing sensitive information. This information is then used to access important accounts and can result in identity theft and financial loss. It is highly likely you have received at least one of these attempts; the most common form being an email.Such messages will often divert you to a convincing website that may ask for login details or even payment information. They also sometimes use attachments to install malicious software (malware) or ransomware on your device. The malware could let criminals see your every keystroke, access your data, or shut down your systems and demand a ransom. This is why it is so important to keep your team trained in what to look for; have regular conversations and encourage reporting of suspicious emails and accidental clicks. These emails are becoming more and more advanced, so you really need to know what you’re looking for! #CyberSecurityAwarenessMonth #TeamZOOC #NewtonAbbot #Devon #ITSupport See MoreSee Less
