Cyber Awareness

The last 20 years has seen a number of innovations in how we run our daily lives when it comes to paying bills and transferring funds from one account to another. This has effectively made the use of cheques and to a lesser extent cash redundant. However, this has come hand in hand with an increased opportunity of cybercrime, be it via email, internet or identity fraud, or via the hacking of your computer to get at personal data.

In trying to protect our clients from innocently falling foul of cybercrime, we approached our cybercrime consultants, Falanx, and in particular one of their specialist trainers, Rob Shapland, to share some words of wisdom on how clients can take some relatively simple steps to better defend themselves from an attack.

We hope you will find Rob’s short videos of interest and would encourage you to share them with your friends and family.
