I have to say that I find the news about an Isle of Man Company being the victim of a cyber attack scary to see; I know that we tend to think of ourselves as shielded on our little Island but it's so important to remember that with the internet, where you are doesn't matter and everyone from the largest to the smallest companies and individuals are a target.

And that's not even thinking about everything else that's going on.

When you add all this together, now is the time to really think about locking down your network.

So below are 5 areas that I would suggest you should be thinking about, and remember this isn't just for large companies it's for everyone!
