The 27th of February – 5th of March was Cyber Scotland Week – a week dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of cyber resilience and educating organisations and individuals on how to remain protected against cyber threats.
As cyber-attacks become increasingly frequent and advanced, this is more essential than ever. It was great to see so many organisations get involved, with events taking place throughout the country, and lots of valuable content being shared online.
Cloud Cover IT’s Managing Director Lance Gauld, Head of Technology Jim Murray, and Group Commercial Director Steven Turner had a great discussion about all things cyber security. They discussed key topics including: why organisations are reluctant to invest in cyber security, how to detect when a hacker is in your system, and how important it is that employees are trained to recognise cyber-attacks. Lance and Jim even shared their top tips for organisations looking to take those first practical steps towards cyber resilience. You can watch the video below:
As discussed in the video, it is essential that your organisation understands the risk and has security measures in place to prevent falling victim to a cyber-attack. If you would like to discuss any of the topics covered in the chat, or have any questions about how your organisation gets started on their journey, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d be happy to help.
