October marks the UK’s cyber security awareness month and Think Secure couldn’t let this month pass without reminding you about our top tips to be cyber smart at home and at work.

It’s time to refresh yourself on how to Think and Be Secure to help you keep your information safe, and embrace technology safely, without presenting any unnecessary risks to yourself or your loved ones. Treat information like it is money: value it, protect it and be mindful of who you share it with.

Think Secure’s five key rules:

  1. Use the internet sensibly – connect securely, think before you click
  2. Be social media-wise – post and connect with care
  3. Protect information and equipmentlock it away, keep it out if sight, and CTRL+ALT+DELETE when you’re not at your seat
  4. Create strong passwords – is your password secure enough?
  5. Report incidents immediately - if you detect suspicious activity on your Royal Mail device or are concerned of a potential or realised data breach, then you must report it to the IT helpdesk immediately by calling 01246 282 555.

We have a new ‘Information Lifecycle’ campaign coming this month.

To support you in protecting your information, check out our ‘How to’ guides that will take you through the steps to safeguard information in the workplace; from creation to disposal.

Printed, verbal or digital information comes in all shapes and sizes, so make sure you consider all types of information you hold on your devices both at work and at home, and take all the necessary steps to safeguard them.

Remember: Think Secure. Be Secure. Stay Secure.
