Your employees are your first line of defence in cyber security, and their training is as crucial as the cutting-edge tools you’ve invested in. Are you overlooking this vital element?
We strongly advise you to make an ongoing commitment to regular cyber security
training for every single one of your team. That means keeping them up to date on the latest cyber threats, the warning signs to lookout for, and of course, what to do should situations arise.
If you’re not already doing that, arrange something now (we can help).
While you wait, here are three urgent cyberthreats to address right away:
Email addresses like “info@” or “admin@” are often less protected due to perceived low risk. However, several teams may require access to these accounts, making them an easy target. Multi-factor authentication (MFA), as simple as using a smartphone, can double your security. Don’t neglect it.
MFA fatigue attacks:
MFA can feel intrusive, leading employees to approve requests without scrutiny. Cybercriminals exploit this complacency with a flood of fake notifications. Encourage your team to meticulously verify all MFA requests.
Phishing remains a top threat. Cyber criminals mimic trusted sources with deceptive emails. Teach your team to inspect email addresses closely. Implementing a sender policy framework can also enhance your protection.
Cyber security training doesn’t have to be tedious. Try simulated attacks and think of them like an escape room challenge—fun yet enlightening. It’s about identifying vulnerabilities, not fault finding. Don’t exclude your leadership team. They need to understand the response plan incase of a breach, much like a fire drill.
Training your staff is not just smart —it’s crucial. If you need help getting started, get in touch.

New features are coming to Microsoft 365 on Android
Microsoft has updated its Android interface, adding features to promote Bing Chat, Edge, and Microsoft 365. You can now access options like ‘Search in Edge,’ ‘Bing Search,’ and a new ‘Microsoft 365 Note’ feature when selecting text in apps like Gmail.
However, this update has hidden some essential features like ‘copy’ and ‘select,’ particularly on Samsung phones. You can work around this by selecting ‘copy’ in the extended menu.
