Staying Safe Online

We were lucky to have two experts at our July meeting to help us understand the main issues involved in “Staying Safe Online” and to provide advice and tips.  Our thanks go to Chris Stevenson and John Gaunt, both of whose jobs involve helping individuals and companies with their IT, including security issues. Chris had prepared some very useful handouts which he went through, with John and himself answering the many questions that arose.
If you ever need help from John or Chris, you can find Chris’ details in the Kent & Sussex IT Services entry on the members page of this website or phone John on  01435 873790
 
The handouts are available to download here for you to take advantage of the valuable guidelines for safeguarding company or personal information.
Although we heard some horror stories of people losing vital information or being defrauded, the key point to take away is that everyone can take straightforward precautions to reduce their risk dramatically although it does take effort on a regular basis.
