Managing Information security risks during Coronavirus

Managing Information security risks during Coronavirus 

The pandemic has seen many organisations respond with measures which help mitigate the economic and social impact of the coronavirus.

In response to the lockdown, working arrangements have changed we have seen an increase in home working and staff taking on new roles – changes which bring new risks. Maybe your organisation is already experiencing a rise in online scams and sophisticated fraud, of the type associated  by cyber criminals. The threat of an information security breach can be mitigated by increased staff vigilance and training.

It is important for all organisations to help staff prepare for the new normal during this period of transition by raising awareness of the data protection issues associated with home working and why it is important to be extra vigilant during  this time.

Leeds City Council has for many years designed data protection e-learning training for the public, private and voluntary sectors. The training contains  modules, assessments and guidance on working from home, using strong passwords, reporting incidents and defending your organisation against phishing incidents and much more.

As the training is written for a non-technical audience it can be applied to  any sector.  If you feel your organisation could benefit from our data protection e-learning package, which incidentally can be undertaken whilst staff are working from home, please get in touch with IG Solutions, Leeds City Council E: IGSolutions@leeds.gov.uk
