Cyber Security is a huge risk when it comes to protecting your private emails. Don’t worry!! We’ve got you covered. Read our free Email Security Guide to help you stay up-to-date with how to keep your emails YOURS!
Our Top 10:

Our latest top 10 tips to help you and your business stay safe from phishing emails!

1. Verify Sender Authenticity

Always double-check the sender’s email address. Cybercriminals often use deceptive email addresses that resemble legitimate organisations.

We have the expertise to identify phishing attempts by scrutinising sender authenticity, ensuring you’re protected from deceptive emails.

2. Don’t Trust Unsolicited Requests

Be cautious of unsolicited emails requesting sensitive information or immediate actions. Legitimate organizations won’t ask for this via email.

We educate our clients to recognise and report unsolicited requests, ensuring you’re well-informed about potential threats.

3. Hover Before You Click

Hover your mouse pointer over links in emails to preview the actual URL. Avoid clicking on suspicious links.

Our cybersecurity solutions include link scanning and filtering to protect you from malicious links that might lead to phishing sites.

4. Check for Grammar and Spelling Errors

Phishing emails often contain spelling and grammar mistakes. Be vigilant and scrutinise the content.

We use advanced email filtering tools that detect and block phishing emails based on various factors, including language quality.

5. Avoid Urgent or Threatening Language

Be sceptical of emails that create a sense of urgency or fear. Cybercriminals use these tactics to pressure victims into taking action.

Our proactive approach includes monitoring phishing emails with urgency flags, ensuring you’re protected from such tactics.

6. Use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Implement MFA for your email accounts and other critical systems to add an extra layer of security.

We specialise in setting up robust MFA systems, and safeguarding your accounts even if your credentials are compromised.

7. Report Suspicious Emails

If you receive a suspicious email, report it immediately to your IT department or IT service provider.

Our incident response team is equipped to handle and investigate potential phishing incidents swiftly, minimising potential damage.

8. Keep Software Updated

Regularly update your software, including email clients and operating systems, to patch security vulnerabilities.

We offer comprehensive software update management to keep your systems secure and up to date.

9. Invest in Security Software

Install reputable antivirus and anti-malware software to scan attachments and links for potential threats.

Our cybersecurity solutions encompass advanced antivirus and anti-malware tools, protecting your network from threats.

10. Educate Your Team

Conduct cybersecurity training for your employees to help them recognize phishing emails and understand the risks.

We offer educational resources, including Guides and videos, to keep your team informed and vigilant against evolving threats.
