Are you protected against cyber-attacks?

Twitter suffered one of the biggest cyber-attacks in history last week.

Several high-profile Twitter accounts, including Bill Gates, Apple, Uber, and Elon Musk, were breached simultaneously promoting a cryptocurrency scam urging millions of followers to send money and in return offering a larger payback. 

Twitter has stated it was a “coordinated social engineering attack” against its employees, ultimately providing the scammer’s access to internal systems and tools to carry out this attack. 

Social Engineering attacks are most commonly based on so-called “phishing emails” designed to fool employees into divulging login credentials for company accounts, something that all businesses need to be aware of and defend against. The best method of doing this is via cyber-awareness training for staff.

Education Secretary announces that vulnerable and disadvantaged young people across the country will receive free laptops.

Disadvantaged children across England are set to receive laptops and tablets as part of a push to make remote education accessible for pupils staying at home during the coronavirus outbreak.

The plan is part of a new push to make remote education accessible for pupils stuck at home due to the current lockdown. The Government will order computers for children in the most vital stages of their education. Furthermore they will also provide 4G routers, but only to make sure “disadvantaged secondary school pupils and care leavers” can access the internet if they don’t already have it.

Devices will be ordered for children in the most vital stages of their education, those who receive support from a social worker and care leavers.

The government will also provide 4G routers to make sure disadvantaged secondary school pupils and care leavers can access the internet – where those families do not already have mobile or broadband internet in the household.

The country’s major telecommunications providers will make it easier for families to access selected educational resources by temporarily exempting these sites from data charges.

If you’re away from the office, factory or premises you can now view your property any time, any where!
