Government plugs online safety

The Department of Trade & Industry’s UK Online for Business today launched a new section of its Web site to inform small businesses about data security.

The information resource at ww.ukonlineforbusiness.gov.uk/informationsecurity is aimed at non-technical business managers and includes explanations about viruses, hacking and data security legislation as well as advice on reasonable security measures.

The site also includes a useful questionnaire enabling a business to quickly assess the health of its data security.

“We don’t proscribe solutions and we don’t endorse products,” said Andrew Rozzier, UK online for Business Advisor for Business Link Northamptonshire. “We offer independent advice, dispelling the myths about IT. We’re here, we’re free, there is no catch.”

Currently the site resembles a large hypertext manual, but the aim is to make it more interactive and community based with user feedback, said Rozzier.
