To start off 2021, Jamie’s winter update looks at ex-employees and the threats they pose to the organisation they leave behind. He reminds you why it’s vitally important for your business to put a process in place to ensure that one of the most overlooked cyberthreats is contained as quickly as possible.
This year has seen a massive rise in phishing attacks mainly due to staff working from home as a result of the pandemic.

2020 has been an unusual year and with it has brought a whole host of COVID-19 related cyber scams. Our video details some of the major scams that you should look out for in both your business and personal life to stay secure.
For our last IT Security Quarterly Update of 2020, which ties in well with National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), Jamie questions why so many organisations still don’t see cyber security as a priority. He raises the issue of what happens when you’re attacked and what you can do to protect your business – even including a useful free guide to download on ‘The ultimate secret to keeping your business data safe’.
In this quarter’s IT Security update, Jamie looks at the value of your business data. Data security is vital for any business as the data you hold is one of your most important assets. Having the appropriate technical and organisational measures in place to mitigate any data security risks is a priority, even more so whilst your staff continue to work flexibly or work from home.
The significant growth in remote working due to the pandemic has also led to an increase in cyber attacks. Organisations must ensure that employees are extra vigilant with IT security practises and have the right measures in place to protect their data.
