We take computer security/cybersecurity very seriously at Mount Green and with increasing cyber attacks on organisations such as the recent Hackney Council incident, which has impacted their systems including Housing Benefit, we wanted to assure you as our residents that we take our systems security seriously, and continue to do so with remote working. Our staff are kept aware of risks, and any emerging alerts are circulated to our teams. For your own protection, we ask residents to also be particularly vigilant with your online security when logging into systems and updating your details or making payments. Always run regular virus checks on your equipment, and never give out details in response to links sent to you in emails and text messages without verifying that the website is a secure site.
If you need more help and advice on how to keep your self cyber safe, please visit the Government cyber security advice website for individuals and families.
