NHS hack 1 year on – How to prevent cyber attacks

It’s nearly a year since the WannaCry virus swept through the NHS, causing chaos up and down the country. Remember the news?

Despite its severity, it could have been prevented. Or at least, the impact mitigated.

Good basic cyber security means three things:

  1. Knowing an attack is inevitable at some point, and being prepared
  2. Keeping operating systems and software fully up-to-date (hackers often go for low hanging fruit… businesses that don’t stay 100% up-to-date)
  3. Having full off-site backup to protect data in case of an attack

It’s not just big organisations like the NHS that are targeted. Hackers will go after any size business.

If you don’t want to become another statistic, you need a bullet proof cyber security strategy.
