Out there, with daylight lasting longer than night, and with winter moving on, trees are in leaf, birds are singing, and frogs are getting up to all manner of unmentionables in ponds. There is always hope in the ancient cyclical rhythms of the world. And we must hold onto that thought; now more than ever before

Cyber-attack… it follows a process

As we are currently very aware, “attack” on our world can come from many angles. But there is still one that businesses, perhaps more than ever, need to protect against constantly; cyber-attack. Some businesses don’t think they’ll be a target, but the problem is that if it does strike it can have a considerable impact on operations, cash flow and reputation; and in reality all businesses are potential targets.
