Privacy Week in New Zealand was this past week (7 - 11 May 2018). Every year the Office of the Privacy Commissioner marks Privacy Week to promote privacy awareness and to help educate and inform. Organisations have a responsibility to look at how they deal with the information and data they have access to, and what processes and systems they have in place to protect the privacy of others.
As an organisation, while you may have the best processes and systems in place, it is also important to have your staff on board and with sufficient awareness, to not only protect themselves, but also to proactively help protect you.
If staff accessed their own email and social media accounts while active on your networks, or if they inadvertently click on a suspicious email in their work email account that managed to bypass your security settings, it can compromise your systems and potentially result in a privacy breach.
We have prepared some useful articles which you can share with your staff to help them gain a better understanding on what to look out for and how to stay safe while online.
- Choosing a strong password and why making the Top 25 most common passwords list is not cool.
- Telling the difference between a real and fake website.
- What is identity theft and how you can stay safe online.
- Tips to spot an email phishing scam.
We have the tools to help secure your organisational systems and to help your staff increase their IT Security awareness. If you would like more information, please contact us by completing the 'Talk to us Today' widget on the top right and one of our consultants will be in touch!
