You should protect your Internet connection with a firewall. This effectively creates a ‘buffer zone’ between your IT network and other, external networks. In the simplest case, this means between your computer (or computers) and ‘the Internet’. Within this buffer zone, incoming traffic can be analysed to find out whether or not it should be allowed onto your network.
To minimise the potential damage that could be done if an account is misused or stolen, staff accounts should have just enough access to software, settings, online services and device connectivity functions for them to perform their role. Extra permissions should only be given to those who need them.
Malware is software or web content that has been designed to cause harm. For example, the Wannacry attack used a form of malware which makes data or systems unusable until the victim makes a payment. Viruses are the most well-known form of malware. These programs infect legitimate software, make copies of themselves and send these duplicates to any computers which connect to their victim.
