10 Things Every Accountancy Firm Should Know About IT Security - HDUK

Number 7 might surprise you.

1. Sounds obvious but grasp the opportunity to engage with the best IT partner.

Discover a partner that understands your sector. They must understand the unique nature of your market.

You’re ambitious and want to grow. Finding the right partner will help you move forward.

2. The financial sector is uber-desirable to cyber criminals for glaring reasons.

Your IT partner must get this. You and your business are a target. It is a fact that won’t go away.

3. Find an IT partner that can explain all these issues in plain English.

You don’t need all the jargon and gobbledygook, do you?

4. More devices and applications are connected. This tech explosion will drive efficiencies but also open up potential threats.

5. Email security is the trojan horse that cyber criminals use most often. Have a monthly meeting with all your team. and discuss the threat. If a new scam is doing the rounds, discussing it as a group can stop them. The hackers thrive on ignorance.

6. Find a partner that keeps you up to speed. Giving you the latest security insights. Supercharging awareness can transform your team. Why not forward this list to your team?

7. Ok, you made it this far, thank you. IT security can be a little depressing. So on behalf of everyone at HDUK we hope you have a fantastic cyber-safe festive break.

8. Always think twice before opening an attachment that doesn’t look right. Be aware.

9. Never, never leave any devices unattended.

10. Find the right partner (sometimes the answer is right in front of you).
