Protection, Back Up and Security

Cyberattacks don’t only happen to large corporations. Small businesses, groups and charities have to protect their IT systems too.

Here are some practical steps you can take today to tighten up your data security.

Back up your data

Create a back-up copy of your data, and do this regularly. Store it somewhere other than your main workplace, if possible. That way, if there’s a break-in, fire or flood, you don’t lose everything.

Use strong passwords

Make sure you, your staff, volunteers, and anyone else involved in your operations uses strong passwords - including smartphones, laptops, tablets, email accounts and computers.

Be wary of suspicious emails

Educate yourself and those working for you on how to spot suspicious emails. Checking for obvious signs such as bad grammar, requests for you to act urgently, and requests for payment will help you avoid being caught out. If it looks suspicious, don’t trust it – and warn your staff not to either.

Install anti-virus and malware protection

And make sure its kept up-to-date.

Don’t keep data for longer than you need it

Staying on top of what personal data you hold will save you time and resources. It will also help you with your data protection responsibilities. Only keep what you need, for as long as you need it.
