your device, how to delete text without even lifting a

warningWarnings & Alerts
The BBC reported on 6th February that more than
746,000 phishing emails pretending to be from the NHS
were blocked in just one month in 2017!
A phishing email tricks the recipient into visiting websites
that impersonate brands and companies and asks the user
to enter their login details. This often enables the attackers
to obtain your confidential information.

Business Basics
IT security is something which is very important to each
and every business and shouldn’t be dismissed by anyone

work together to reduce the threat to your business.
Please read the list of IT Security Dos and Don’ts on our
