It's Black Friday - Be Vigilant & Don't Get Scammed

It's all over the TV & Radio this morning - today is being targeted by scammers and hackers due to the increased online activity associated with Black Friday.  Watch out for phishing emails and fake websites with links to bargains that are just too good to be true.  Type in the web address of the site being referred to as opposed to following the link.  If the bargain is real, it'll be on the genuine website.

It may seem that we're overdoing it with these warnings but unfortunately during a recent ethical phishing attack conducted on our behalf by a security consultant as part of a security review, over 36% of our users clicked on the link in the phishing email.  So, once again, please be vigilant.
