Security online is becoming a major issue.
Everyday we here is about organisations, websites and peoples personal accounts are getting broken into by internet hackers. Hackers are probing all the time to find vulnerabilities to find ways of breaking in.
With recent reports about banks and even military organisations that have been broken into where account information has been stolen and software destroyed it is becoming very obvious that this is a serious issue that everyone is facing all around the world.
So how can you protect yourself and your organisation?
Software updates are issued almost daily now to try and plug vulnerabilities on your mobile phones, apps and websites. So make sure that your running the latest software is a good start.
When you see those messages on your phone saying there is an update available, don’t just look at it and say I don’t need to update because its working fine now. The idea of ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ just doesn’t cut the mustard.
Update and backup regularly.
If you broken into because your software is not up to date then it is too late. Keep it up to date!
