The National Cyber Security Centre have launched a self-assessment tool to help sole traders and micro businesses check how safe they are from cyber threats, and to give advice on areas of improvement.
Due to coronavirus, people are spending more time online this year.
This means more opportunities for hackers to carry out cyber attacks. They often do this by targeting people and businesses using:
- email and website scams
- malware – software that can damage your device or let a hacker in
If hackers get into your device or accounts, they could access your money, your personal information, or information about your business.
In response to a potential attack, CyberAware have produced a toolkit and for more information visit CyberAware.gov.uk.
