What do you know about malware?


Malware is software or web content that can harm your organisation. The best-known type of malware is viruses which can infect your system.

Here are some ways to prevent malware damaging your business:

  1. Install antivirus software – on all computer and laptops
  2. Use a firewall.
  3. Be careful when downloading apps – only download apps from manufacturer-approved stores such as Google Play or Apple’s App Store.
  4. Keep all your equipment up-to-date by downloading updates and patches (we covered the importance of updates and patches in last month’s security briefing https://www.ncs-support.co.uk/news/the-importance-of-updates-and-patches/)
  5. Control how USBs and memory cards can be used – you can block access to physical ports for users and only allow approved drives and cards to be used within your organisation.
  6. Give staff accounts enough access as is required to perform their role with extra permissions for those who need it.
