Did you set a secure Out of Office message if you’re taking time out this week for half-term? Secure means saying simply ‘I will not have regular access to my emails from A to B. If it’s urgent please call me or ABC’. Avoid saying you are on leave as that’s alerting cyber criminals to a potentially empty house.
Also avoid giving too many points of contact as that too open the door to preying eyes and can be an easy source of leaking confidential information eg other organisation with whom you deal, other points of contact etc.
