Christmas dinner ingredients can now be ordered and delivered to your door, Boxing Day sales can be done without leaving the house and unwanted gifts can be returned without anyone else knowing. 

It's therefore no surprise that this time of year also sees a surge in online criminal activity. For this reason, it's essential to stay cyber-smart over Christmas. Safeguarding your data is easier than you think, and Concorde Cyber Security are here to make it even easier.  

Here are some cyber security tips to help you stay safe over the festive period. 

Beware of phishing emails 

Be careful when clicking on email links, especially those from unknown senders. Be skeptical about emails asking for personal or financial information. 

Secure Online Shopping 

Only shop on trusted and secure sites and avoid public or unsecured Wi-Fi networks for financial transactions. Use strong and unique passwords for your online accounts, and consider using a password manager to help keep track of them. 

Update your devices

Ensure that your operating system, antivirus software, and other applications are up to date with the latest security patches. Set your devices to date and automatically if possible.

Use Multi-Factor-Authentication

Enable MFA wherever possible to add an extra layer of security to your account. 

Regularly Backup  your Data 

It is important you regularly back up your data. Backups protect against human errors, hardware failure, virus attacks, power failures, and natural disasters. Backups can help save time and money if these failures occur.
