Detailed advice on the rules on the operating of different alert levels while complying with the Health and Safety at Work Act can be found on the business.govt.nz website.
Protect your website
Your website is important to your business. It contains business and customer information that’s valuable to cyber attackers. This is particularly true if your website is an online store.
CERT NZ and Consumer Protection have joined forces for a new campaign to raise awareness among businesses and consumers about keeping safe and secure when transacting online, and the steps they can take to do that. The campaign is currently running online and on TV until the end of August and will run again in the lead up to Christmas.
CERT NZ's campaign encourages businesses to Trade Smart Online and offers practical steps to help keep their websites safe and secure.
Consumer Protection’s Buy Smart Online campaign, provides steps consumers can take to stay safe and secure when shopping online.

Giving access to tools
Some tools and software don’t need to be hosted on an office server, as they’re accessed from an internet browser. Tools you log in to online are called software as a service (SaaS). Read our guide to see how to assess which tools suit your business and how to use them securely.
