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.

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.

  • 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.

    I've just been talking to a business owner and we put them up to the "Let Us Hack You" challenge. Yes, it is exactly what it sounds like. We're the good guys and we jump in and try to hack your systems like the baddies could and see if we can get in. Now, okay, much to their dismay we got in, they were not impressed.

     

  • 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.
