  • Is Your Website Secure?

    Because of hackers, the Australian economy loses thousands of dollars annually on recovery costs alone. The number of offshore website security attacks significantly increased since 2005 because of the country’s high use of technology for social media, online government services, and banking. Your business could be next. 

     

  • What Can You Do to Avoid Data Breaches?

    If you have read some of the most recent IT security news, whether in Australia or in any other parts of the world, you might have seen the number of data breach occurrences during the first half of 2019 alone. In fact, from January to July of this year, there has been a total of 1.6 billion records compromised due to the lack of proper IT security protocols. That’s a daily average of 7.6 million records in a span of 7 months

  • 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 We Really Be Safe Online?man got scared of a hacker

    Today, we're going to talk about cybersecurity and whether we can ever be safe. Well, the short answer is no. However, we can try damn hard to be safe. We can be diligent and continue the game of cat and mouse to make sure that we're on top of it. The good news is crime, in general, is on the down, but online, there are a lot of risks. You can hold people, companies to ransom.

    One of the easiest ways to secure yourself is to make sure that you've got your stuff backed up and it's in an offsite location. If you've got a managed IT service provider, they can make sure that they're looking after that for you and they're backing it up onsite and remotely in your own private cloud. 

  • Cybercriminals do not discriminate. No matter how big or small your company may be, you can become a victim of hacking, phishing and other cyber attacks. Learn how you can guarantee the security of your company’s data.

  • How Can Apples and Oranges be the Same Price

    You can't compare apples with oranges and that's what it comes down to. We've been told this time and time again, don't compare apples with oranges. But the problem is people know what an apple looks like and people know what an orange looks like, but people don't know when they've bought a lemon. Pretty clever what I did there, I thought. Anyway, so what are we going to be talking about is removing and unveiling what's behind the curtains. This comes down to any service that isn't really tangible and you are led to believe that the person that you've got doing the service is doing a good job. Now, this can be bookkeepers, accountants, solicitors, lawyers, anything like that. IT people, marketers, SEO people, SCM people, ad-words people, all these people. Unless you're in the industry and you can double-check and cross-check what they're doing, you don't really know if the voodoo that they do is any good.

  • You Have Cyber Insurance, Now What?

    Nowadays, businesses in Australia are more at risk of experiencing security breaches than ever before. With the numerous cyberattacks that occurred during the first half of 2019, there is no denying that the need for stricter security protocols is high. While you might feel safe, you should know that cybercriminals do not discriminate. No matter how big or small your business is, if they can find a way to use your information to earn money, they will do it, no matter how illegal or unethical it may be. This is why acquiring cyber insurance and complying with its terms is a must for every business.

  • How To Keep Your Business Secured Online?

    I'm in the security field where we have to keep many, many businesses safe online, day in, day out, 24 hours a day. It's obviously a really, really important idea to make sure your business is safe online. There are lots of free tools and utilities out there that can help you keep things safe. As the old adage goes, If you can't afford an expensive tool, wait until you see how much the price of a cheap tool will cost you. It can impact your business greatly. We see it all the time, where people don't have tools in place, to keep their business safe.

  • network security auditorIs Your Organisation Vulnerable to Cyberattacks?

    Network security should be a priority of business owners, especially with the recent cyberattacks in Australia. Without implementing robust security measures and protocols, organisations could become vulnerable to cyberattacks and lose important data. Avoid this mistake by getting a network security audit! It’s one of the best ways to ensure that your company’s network is in good shape.

  • How Protected Is Your Business From Cyber Crimes?

    As business owners in Australia are becoming more aware of surging cyber threats that could harm their organizations, customizing an information security policy now has a much larger role in their operations. While Aussies that run their own business benefit from taking such precautionary actions, some still lack the proper guidance in terms of establishing an effective policy that would ensure 100% protection from cyberattacks.

  • 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.' 

  • IT Audit Checklist for Business in Australia

    Long gone are the times when a business audit meant checking financial accounts for accuracy and comprehensiveness. Today, an audit covers Information Technology. The idea behind conducting an IT audit is to evaluate the performance of the systems in place to protect an organisation's data.

  • Is Your Business Information Online Secure?online security

    Aussies love to be prepared. If you have a business and want to make sure your information security system can fend off cyber attacks, schedule an audit and make sure there’s disaster recovery on the IT audit checklist. It is more important than ever. With power outages and changes in the IT industry in the past years, more and more IT strategists are making data recovery the top priority in their IT plans.

  • 02 May 2019 Is World Password Dayfacebook log in with username and password

    We celebrate World Password Day every first Thursday of May. This special day aims to remind people to protect themselves online by using strong passwords. Avoid passwords like ‘12345678’ and ‘password’. Secure your social media pages and other online accounts by using passwords that are hard to guess.

  • How Cybersecurity Can Help SMBs

    Cybersecurity is an integral part of running a business, particularly for Aussies, to prevent unwarranted access to your network. Smart devices and Internet access have become necessities, making information security indispensable against viruses. When hit by a cyberattack, it may take years to bounce back, not to mention retrieving the lost or stolen data. With a regular IT audit and other cybersecurity practices, cyber threats will be minimized.

  • Are You Using WordPress Plugin WooCommerce Abandoned Cart Lite?

    Australia is not an exemption to the 20,000 times and still growing worldwide downloads of the WordPress plugin called WooCommerce Abandoned Cart Lite. While WordPress quickly began to take the lead, leaving its competitors Drupal and Joomla, its plugin comes with an advantage and a disadvantage. As a plus, default functions go beyond its capabilities. However, it can pose risks to website security if not properly checked. It's useful but weak on cross-site scripting attempts. 

  • Does Your Current IT Provider Deliver as Expected?

    Australian companies have become more exposed to online threats, especially phishing and malware. You might think that having a routine IT audit already protects your business from cyberattacks, but the way IT audit is done has a great effect on the results. Senior members and company executives’ perception of IT security policies also affect the efficiency of audits. You simply can’t expect low-level employees to follow protocols if leaders don’t comply with rules.

  • Working From Home – How to Stay Secure 

    So your employer has let you work from home and now you're wondering “how do you stay secure?”There are more and more employees that are working from home nowadays and it's becoming the norm. I personally think is fantastic because it's lowering the number of cars that we have on the roads during peak times, which is a huge problem. You go along andthere are five cars each with one person in them, instead of one car with five people in.There are more traffic and greenhouse gas emissions for no reason. Anyway, that's another story. What we're going to be doing today is discussing how to stay secure from both a business perspective, as well as from the freelancer remote workers perspective. Let's start with the freelancer.
