Cyber Security newsletter is our latest Safer Spaces guide

Author: Stacey BarnfieldPublished:

Edwin Ellis was commissioned by Colmore BID to produce a special digital guide to raise awareness of online and cloud safety during October’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.

With more people working from home and accessing company networks remotely, cyber security has never been more important.

The BID is working alongside the West Midlands Cyber Security Resilience Centre to raise awareness of potential threats through its social media and with a special digital publication that features tips for home-working, COVID-19 related threats, VPN access and phishing, among other cyber topics.

Colmore BID CEO, Michele Wilby, said: “October marks the launch of Cyber Security Awareness Month and we’re delighted to be partnering with the West Midlands Cyber Security Resilience Centre to inform and educate businesses within the BID on how important it is to protect yourself and your organisation from cyber-attacks.

“According to a recent report, in the UK there is an attempted cyber-attack once every 50 seconds, with this figure only rising with the popularity of working from home schemes, brought about by Covid-19.

“Some of the solutions may seem simple and like common sense, but even these quick fixes can help prevent the devastating and long-term effects of loss or even theft of data.”

The guide is the latest produced by Edwin Ellis for Colmore BID under the ‘Safer Spaces’ brand.
