ENCOURAGE EMPLOYEES TO USE DIFFERENT PASSWORDS FOR PERSONAL AND WORK ACCOUNTS
😱 51% of people use the same password for both personal and work accounts*.
Although this makes them easier to remember, it leaves users much more vulnerable to hackers - if they can gain access to one account, they can get into to all of them.
⚠️ Make sure your employees are aware of the risks around password reuse and encourage them to have a different one for each account.
💡 Password managers such as LastPass are a great way of maintaining strong, unique passwords for various accounts, without having to rely on memory!

DOES CHANGING IT PROVIDER MAKE YOU NERVOUS?

We did a bit of research recently and what we found was pretty unusual. Or so we thought. As it turns out, it’s actually quite common. Businesses are nervous, even scared, about changing their IT provider.

KnowBe4 Case Study - MUST READ 👀

This multi-national software provider, TXT e-solutions, was well aware of of the problems that organizations face with social engineering attacks, which is why they believe that educating employees about the dangers is so important. Given the ISO 27001 compliance requirement, their desire to strengthen the company's security culture and their need to satisfy GDPR compliance requirements, they found KnowBe4 to be the best fit to meet their needs.

See how KnowBe4's integrated security awareness training and simulated phishing platform helped them:

Reduce their Phish-Prone Percentage from 17.4% to 0.7% in five months.

Encourage employees to come to the IT Support Team to double-check suspicious looking emails before clicking on them

We recently had a call from a client that was experiencing problems due to the fact they haven’t upgraded Windows 7 to Windows 10 yet. We wrote the blog below back in January when Windows 7 was due to come to end-of-life. We really urge anyone who is still using Windows 7 to have a read of it – as it’s more relevant now than ever.



Not upgrading Windows 7 puts you at a much higher risk of being hit by a cyber attack. And since Covid-19 reared its ugly head, so have scores of hackers. Cyber-attacks have massively increased this year as cybercriminals take full advantage of a bad situation. This, together with the fact you may still have staff working from home, means you really need to take cybersecurity seriously.



You may think you can’t afford to upgrade your system or your machines, but the reality is – you can’t afford not to. The consequences of a cyber attack will cost you so much more in the long run.

Last year we introduced a new client feedback system, specifically designed to make it quick and easy for our clients to let us know what they really thought about the service being received. We’ve actually been doing client surveys for years as part of our support ticket process, however, we only tended to analyse the results every few months and when we did, we found that we were only getting about a 10% response rate. Now we get 60% response rate and our feedback is 96.5 %

Cybersecurity is something that all too often stays on a to-do list. It’s one of those things that people know they should take care of, but don’t. Why?

30/09/2020

There are a lot of scams out there at the moment. Some target the general public – some just target businesses. Increasingly, we are seeing more targeted attacks on certain industry sectors. We’ve seen sports organisations get hit and now there’s a new focus – accountants. We’ve even seen IT service providers being targeted as a means to gain access to their customers’ systems. The fears and vulnerabilities that surround Covid-19 are being hugely exploited.

So, how can you stay vigilant?

Here are some quick and easy cyber security top tips for you to implement now:

⭐ Use strong passwords on your accounts (but don’t use the same password everywhere).
⭐ Where possible, implement 2-factor/multifactor authentication (2FA/MFA).
⭐ Ensure you back up any data and systems critical to your business – at least daily.
⭐ Take a multi-layered approach to cyber security and implement suitable solutions for your needs. Antivirus software and a firewall are no longer enough.
⭐ Make use of email filtering solutions to help filter out spam, phishing emails and malware.
⭐ Ensure your cloud environments are protected too. Did you know that Microsoft does not back up your data? That’s your responsibility.
⭐ You might want to consider cyber awareness training for your staff. Services from @KnowBe4, @Twist & Shout Communications and @Twist & Shout Media offer great training solutions.

All of the above may seem overwhelming and you may find yourself saying ‘Where do I start?’. We want to help as many people as possible to stay safe, so either message me directly or get in touch with Somerbys IT to see how we can help.

Stay cyber safe!
