One way to help tackle cy­ber crime

The Oban Times - - Feature -

SCOTS are be­ing called on to make ‘one sim­ple change’ in their com­puter use to help slash the num­ber and im­pact of cy­ber at­tacks.

Patch­ing - up­dat­ing com­puter sys­tems to the most up-to- date ver­sion - dra­mat­i­cally re­duces the abil­ity of e- crim­i­nals to make dam­ag­ing hack­ing raids such as steal­ing money and shar­ing per­sonal in­for­ma­tion.

The mes­sage comes from the Scot­tish Busi­ness Re­silience Cen­tre, the Scot­tish gov­ern­ment and Po­lice Scot­land’s busi­ness re­silience de­liv­ery arm which has been tasked with de­liv­er­ing a cy­ber re­silience strat­egy to help equip busi­nesses and the public and with the tools and knowl­edge to com­bat e- crime.
