Device Security

Securing your devices

It is essential to ensure that the devices you use for IT including their operating system (Windows, IoS etc) and the software used on them are updated regularly – this is normally referred to as “patching” as it patches security holes.

Devices like smartphones, tablets and PCs are getting more and more secure, but hackers are getting better at attacking them with more sophisticated attack methods.

If you've just bought a new device, or haven't looked at your security settings for a while, you should take some time to make sure you're protected against the latest threats. Fortunately, most manufacturers provide easy-to-use guidance on how to secure their devices. We've provided some links to their advice below.

We recommend you take some time to go through these guides every few months, or when you get a new device, to make sure you're protected.
