Ensure you are aware of the latest threats

Being well-versed on current trends puts your business in a stronger position to mitigate against potential risks and so we recommend that you sign-up to the latest NCSC weekly threat reports.

An awareness of the latest threats will enable you to review your Incident Response Plan so it is fit for purpose and evaluate your current security posture, taking action where needed. Any delay in reacting to threats will leave systems vulnerable and it only takes simple preventative measures such as patching, strengthening passwords or implementing 2FA to avoid catastrophic consequences. 

Whilst social media channels can be a good source of information in real-time, you should always check the veracity of the original post.
