Sharing Cybersecurity resources this ECSMPosted on 30 September 2019 by Beaming Support
October is European Cybersecurity Month (ECSM), an EU-wide awareness campaign to increase citizens’ and organisations’ knowledge of cybersecurity threats and provide education and resources to help them protect themselves online.
As an internet service provider for businesses across the UK, the organisations we work with trust us to keep their data safe and their systems secure. One aspect of this involves taking on an advisory role; this can involve offering advice on some complicated tech, but often means giving some really simple tips to reinforce cyber security that can be followed by any employee.
As a result, we’ve amassed a great selection of our own cybersecurity resources, which we’re happy to share. Every day throughout the ECSM, we’ll be posting cybersecurity news & tips on our website and social media; from up-to-the-minute research into the threats faced by businesses, to news on the psychological impact of cyber crime on business leaders and advice for all on strengthening cyber defences.
We’ve divided our free cybersecurity resources into sections so you can easily find what you need.
