Thankfully, it’s pretty easy to tighten your device security. Read on for four easy things you can do today to protect your personal info along with your devices.
IT Cybersecurity incidents have a devastating impact on business and small home offices with an average loss in 2019 costing over $330,000 per incident according to London insurer Hiscox (who have a vested interest in selling cyber insurance). However, the loss of data and reputation can't be quantified. Which is why professional service companies are such a sweet target.
Changes to everyday life due to the Coronavirus, we need to help our kids, tweens and teenagers adjust to the new and unfamiliar situation of indefinite school and childcare creche closings.
This is the opinion of leading American experts in MIT. Schoolyard bullying has been seriously reduced since 1999. Sadly the bullies many of whom are cowards have taken to cyberbullying instead. Online bullying is the only form of bullying growing. This ain't what Steve Jobs brought the world the iPhone to do.
Stop it with VPN.
VPN is everywhere now, a vital part of cybersecurity, internet safety. It's suddenly become time for everyone to get a private untracked connection which speeds up your online connection, improves your internet security, and reduces advertising and hide what you do online. VPN adverts are everywhere. Here's a breakdown of what you need. The first thing you don't need is a free VPN. You need the right provider, not the first one to appear on an internet search. You want to search the internet, not let the internet search you.

It’s said that conservatively 2 million cyberattacks took place in 2018 costing an estimated $45 billion in damages worldwide.
Most experts place this figure much higher, as many still don’t reports attacks or payments. Prevention and Protection are the best way to protect your business.
Former Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Bernard Hogan Howe really annoyed the Prime Minister, Theresa May, when she was Home Secretary. She agreed with his stance on cyber crime, but not the way he went about it. He suggested Police would be slow to investigate online security crimes where the individuals failed to take online protection seriously especially having an 'upto date' anti virus.

It’s all about building a real digital presence, an online reputation that embraces the best practices of internet safety - building an online presence that lets you take advantage of the internet and not let the internet take advantage of you.
It’s just like life, it requires discipline to build it properly and yet you can still have great fun.
