In today’s super-connected world, businesses are now more reliant on the internet than ever before. Emailing files to clients, holding video conferences, transferring money – it’s all so simple to do, often at just the click of a button, thanks to the latest advances in technology.
But whilst the convenience this has brought to our professional lives is clear, the issue of cyber security is one that should be given due consideration. As online technology has grown in sophistication, unfortunately so too have cyberattacks.
Thankfully, incovo is proud to announce we now offer comprehensive IT support and cyber security, giving our customers the peace of mind that comes from knowing their systems are fully protected from any potential digital attacks.
Here are just a few of the ways incovo is protecting businesses just like yours right across Scotland:

- Restarting systems at convenient times to facilitate software upgrades
- Providing full helpdesk support, field and office-based engineers
There are also many ways you can help to protect yourself online. Take a look at incovo’s top tips for protecting your business’s cyber security:
- Ensure you have anti-virus software installed on all devices – desktop computers, laptops, tablets and mobile phones.
- Make sure your software is always up to date by switching on ‘Automatic Updates’.
- Turn on your Firewall to block any potential threats.
- Back up your data on a regular basis. That way, if in the unfortunate event that you do get attacked, you won’t lose all your data.
- Before entering credit card details online, always check the authenticity of the site (it should begin with ‘https://’) and make sure there is an SSL certificate padlock icon on the address bar.
- Be aware of what you’re clicking and what you’re downloading. If a suspicious email from someone you don’t recognise is asking you to click a link, confirm a password, or download a file, delete it immediately.
- If you do get hacked, be sure to change all your online passwords, keep an eye on your bank balance, and report any suspicious transactions right away.
