Major cyber-attack on the UK is inevitable

Now we’re not ones to scare monger but when the head of the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre says that a major cyber attack on the UK is only a matter of time then that seems pretty serious to us! Ciaran Martin who runs the Security Centre suggests that the lessons learned from the malicious cyber activity in 2017 indicates that more cyber disruption is on its way.

Small businesses count the cost of a cyber attack

One in five small businesses hit by a cyber attack report that the breach cost in excess of £10,000 with one in ten quoting £50,000 as the amount they had to spend to rectify the damage.  With over 875,000 small, and medium sized businesses (SME’s) across the UK being attacked in the last 12 months, can SME’s really afford to take a chance on outdated or inadequate protection?

WannaCry Ransomware – the story so far

Friday the 12th of May 2017 saw the first Ransomware worm that we have seen in the wild wreak havoc across the globe, striking indiscriminately at those running Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 or un-patched Windows 7 Operating Systems. This worm has exploited the vulnerability MS17-010 allowing it to spread through a network at alarming speed and with no user interaction.

This week we are running webinars at 3.00pm and 4.00pm GMT every day where we will talk about the current threat landscape and show WannaCry in action before taking a deep dive into the forensics of the attack. To register for one of these, complete the form below and we will confirm the joining details immediately.
