  • How Can You Secure Your POS System?Secure POS System

    Australian retailers can enhance their point-of-sale (POS) security by knowing the vulnerabilities of all their devices. Online criminals target POS devices because they consider them to be the weakest links in an interconnected system. Once a hacker successfully compromises the payment network, your customer data security becomes at risk since they will often steal credit card numbers and personal identification numbers (PINs).

    It's hard to find any Aussie organisation or business that isn't connected to the Internet. With the world being as globalised and connected as it is today, it has actually become difficult for companies to find long-standing success in business without relying on the conveniences and advantages it delivers. In this connected world, we need IT infrastructure audit professionals to make sure that it works as usual.

  • How Can Businesses Prevent Data Breaches?

    In Australia, data breaches are not uncommon. According to reports by the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC), there were approximately 812 data breaches in 2018 alone. This quarter, a single incident compromised the information of 10 million Aussies. The number and frequency of data breaches should be a cause for concern for all Aussie business owners—particularly those who do not have a strategy in place to protect against threats.

  • Why Should You Opt for the Zero Trust Approach?Access Denied-5 Reasons to Choose the Zero Trust Approach

  • 9 Things You Can Do For Your SMB To Avoid A Data Breach

    Data is at the root of every decision. Be it your personal life or professional, nothing remains untouched. For example, while investing you tend to see how your previous investments have fared, what are the rising trends in the market and how much you are safely willing to invest at any time. All this is data which you gather for personal gain. Similarly, business decisions too are driven by data. In business, data collected is wide and varied. It ranges from customer information to company financials, inter-departmental communication etc. In all, data collection is mandatory and so keeping it secure is of prime importance.

  • How Secure Is Your Website?Better Information Security for Accommodation Websites

    Australia’s hospitality industry is a perennial target of cybercriminals who will use any means necessary to gain valuable information. Some of their fraudulent activities are spoofing your website and creating fake accommodation deals. These ads often appear to be almost legitimate that the average customer, might not notice the difference between them and your own promotional offers. There are a lot more of these illegal activities that only an IT security consultant company may be able to identify for you.

  • Can SMBs Handle the Real Cost of a Cyber Attack?The Real Cost of a Cyber Attack

    Aussie SMBs are moving toward cloud computing because of the many benefits it provides. Reduced IT costs, scalability of operations and storage as well as increased collaboration are just a few examples. However, with advances in IT come new risks. To keep up with the changes in the IT landscape, attackers are becoming more sophisticated, and the threat environment continues to evolve. Small and medium-sized businesses that have adopted novel IT processes without updating their cybersecurity measures may find themselves victims ill-prepared to prevent a cyber attack.

  • What Is the Difference Between Data Security and Data Privacy?

    Business owners in Australia should have a clear understanding of the difference between data security and data privacy so they can come up with a good network security plan. For many, the distinctions between these two terms may not be clear. Data security is the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and services, while data privacy involves identifying the bounds of who and what actions can be done with certain information. Data may be secure but not private at all.

  • Should You Really Invest in a VPN Service?Everything You Need to Know About VPN

    There are two reasons why Australian businesses should invest in a paid virtual private network (VPN) service. First, a paid service provides you with better online privacy. Another reason involves improved security for transmitting data over the Internet. Remember that when you choose a type of VPN, the advantages can outweigh the risks if you choose the right one.

  • How To Mitigate The IT Security Risks Of M&A

    Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) are hard to ignore in the reality of the business world. It is a time filled with back and forth negotiations, strategising, guessing and second-guessing your instincts. Traditionally, the deal would become final and irrevocable with the signing of contracts. A formal shake of hands would then pass the control from one to the other. If you look closer, the transition period would be full of chaos and hiccups.

  • Welcome to Miami!

    Miami...it's one of the places that really spoke to me because of Miami Vice, probably the most famous TV show around crime that there is. But don't take my word for it.

  • The Truth About Your Smartphone

    Is your smartphone listening to you? The short answer is, yes, it is. How creepy is that? If you've got Facebook Messenger or any of the big apps on there, you're going to find that your phone is actually listening to you. You might be thinking, 'Why? How did they know that I was looking to buy new tyres?' The reason is they saw you make that call to Goodyear, Beaurepaires or Bob Jane, whoever it was, and then whoever had the highest bid on any of the different networks that are advertising to you, be it Facebook or Google, has then said, 'Oh, they've got the highest bid. Let's shoot them across even if they're a competitor.'

  • Security Is Everything

    A little while ago, I started thinking about how far the world has come and going back into the days of my first job (Yep. Many, many moons ago at Jaycar). I was thinking about how many people paid and their PIN number was on the back of their credit card or on the back of their key card. I thought, oh my goodness, that's not even obscurity. That's not security at all. You might as well use a chisel to lock your door. It doesn't make any sense.

  • cybersecurity visibility for business organisationsDoes Your Organisation Have This?

    Cybersecurity visibility is a word that usually comes up in the information security scene these days. Organisations in Australia should look at and understand what is happening inside their networks to protect their data and consequently their reputation. They need to know who is accessing what data at a particular time and how people are accessing this data.

  • Are You Utilising an Effective IT Security Approach?

    Australian companies can improve their cybersecurity strategies when they pay more attention to a human-centric approach. Most businesses have focused on improving the resilience of their IT security infrastructure. While this is necessary, it’s equally important to know how people interact with network infrastructure. Remember that your employees should act as the first line of defence against potential threats.

  • What Makes Zero Trust Different From Older Approaches?zero trust network security model

    Australian business owners who are concerned about the security and privacy of their data should consider updating their security architecture to the zero trust network security model. While traditional approaches to protecting data have worked well in the past, advances in technology and the increasing sophistication of hackers have created a need for a more holistic and comprehensive approach to security. 

  • Do You Have the Right People to Conduct a Business IT Audit?

    Small- and mid-scale business (SMB) owners in Australia need an information technology security audit just as much as large companies. However, many SMBs are unable to perform a Business IT audit due to a lack of qualified personnel. Even if you have an in-house IT team, their duties are often different from the function and role of an independent audit or compliance group.

  • Why You Should Love Two-Factor Authentication?Protect Your Information Using Two-Factor Authentication

    In Quebec, a lot of people are bilingual. There are plenty of French signs everywhere as well as all the English. I've always thought that having a second language would be fantastic, although I think I see it's not my best skill.
