The Coronavirus crisis has had the biggest impact on normal life, both in the UK and across the world, than any other we have seen in this lifetime.
With unprecedented changes to how people live and work following restrictions brought in to control the spread of the virus, we have seen the biggest ever working-from-home mandate, with the vast majority of business’ making changes to allow employees to work from home wherever possible.
With this has brought increased risk to the security of computer systems, resulting in increased notifications of cyber attacks. We have seen a significant increase in the number and frequency of attacks since the beginning of the pandemic.
This is why we have worked hard to bring together advice, guidance and tips in one place, to support individuals and businesses to reduce the risk of a cyber attack. You can see this guidance below.
