Throughout the current uncertainty and lockdown measures, we have remained open for business as (almost!) usual.

Our team is continuing to work from home in line with government advice, and all meetings are being conducted virtually. Fortunately, thanks to the nature of the business we operate in, we are well equipped for this setup!

As always, we are here to help you identify any cyber security issues or threats — offering advice that is honest, pragmatic and relevant to your business now.

Over the past couple of months, we have seen an increase in cyber-attacks, particularly phishing attacks, as businesses and individuals get to grips with remote working and continue adapting to the ‘new normal’.

We urge you to be vigilant and follow this advice:

  • Always check the sender’s email address. Do not respond to, forward, open attachments or click on links from unknown sources. If in doubt, contact the person or organisation the email claims to have been sent by.
  • Don’t ever give out personal information such as bank details, logins or passwords via email or SMS. If you receive a phone call asking for these details, hang up, look up the number of the organisation the caller claims to be from and contact the legitimate company.

If you have any questions or queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch at info@burningtree.co.uk.

We hope you and your families stay safe and well during these challenging times.
