Business Security Tips for the Coronavirus Lockdown

The worldwide Coronavirus pandemic is having a severe impact on everyone. The world’s economy has gone into massive decline as workers and customers remain at home in lockdown or self-isolation. Many businesses, large and small, have been forced change their working practices and in some cases close their doors resulting in a growing number of burglaries as criminals target premises left empty during the Coronavirus lockdown.

And it’s not just businesses who are suffering due to unscrupulous criminals during this crisis. Homeowners, farmers and keepers of smallholdings are increasingly being targeted. What’s more, experts from the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), which is part of GCHQ - have said that a range of attacks are being conducted by cyber criminals to make money out of exploiting people’s fears over COVID-19.  

Here’s some practical advice and recommendations that will help businesses and individuals remain safe and secure as we get through this outbreak.

This is obviously something that organisations need to avoid as it could lead to serious legal action.
