How To Defend Your Business Against Cyber-Attacks

Cyber Attack, Don’t Panic! How to handle the situation should you become a victim

What would you do if your business was the victim of cyber-attack? How would you handle the situation?  The BBC’s Technology correspondent Mark Ward recently published a great article describing what it could be like to be a victim of a rogue cyber-attack.

It’s essential reading for small businesses (read it in full here), because of how it addresses the typical real-life scenario of events that play out following a serious data breach and highlights how easy it is for businesses without a robust IT security strategy in place to become victims.

The Key Do’s & Don’ts

Our team at Dragon IS have delved into the scenario as described in the Blink Wink’s head office and highlighted our own Do’s and Don’ts of the case, how the individuals should have acted and where the mistakes were made. You can download a free PDF copy below:
