Bot malware is a growing security threat
If we talk about ‘bots’ you’d be forgiven for thinking of the amazing AI chatbots that have been all over the news lately. But this isn’t a good news story.

Don’t forget your phone when you think about cyber security
Our phones are a goldmine of private information. Just think of all the financial details, personal messages, banking apps, photos and contact information that live behind that little glass screen. And if your team use phones for work, they’ll often have access straight into company systems – email, contact lists, network access, file systems. So if […]
Let’s start talking about AI
The whole world is suddenly talking about AI, also known as Artificial Intelligence.

These new concepts take things WAY further, helping us to […]
Cyber attacks are getting bigger and smarter. Are you vulnerable?

Is your security focusing on the right things?
To protect your home from an intruder you make sure your doors and windows are all locked and secured.

But there’s no point going to all that effort if someone’s already broken in and set up […]
Young employees have different attitudes to cyber crime
If you employ anyone aged between 16 and 19, you need to pay special attention to the cyber security training you’re giving your team.

Take action to avoid a devious new phishing scam
Another day, another scam. And this is a sneaky one. Cyber criminals are getting smarter. This recent malware threat is unusually smart.

When did you last have a health check?
How’s the January health kick going? Lots of us take our health seriously – once a year, anyway – and it’s good to spend time thinking about whether you’ve been looking after yourself (and better still, doing something about it). Your doctor would probably like to see you once a year for a health check, just […]
A little trust can go a long way
Countless employers still don’t trust their people to do their best work unless they’re physically in the office. But while managers may be struggling to adjust to our new hybrid world, this perception is a long way from the truth. Research from around the world reveals that greater flexibility from remote and hybrid working often […]
