There’s so much information now about the likelihood of being the victim of a cyber attack or data breach but what are the real chances of it happening? Sadly, the odds are uncomfortably high. Each day there is a new story and whilst writing, the news is being released of the British Airways website breach with almost 400,000 personal records stolen which will cause major disruption and inconvenience to the airline and its passengers. So to put cyber threats in perspective, AVR has produced this fun infographic which we hope you will find of interest.
Let’s face it, a cyber attack or data breach is no laughing matter! Most IT security experts believe attacks are inevitable and are urging us to ‘Protect your endpoints’ with good reason. With so many devices in use; mobiles, smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, etc., the threat of a cyber attack or data breach is sadly more likely than ever, but do you know how much your business or organisation might be at risk? World leading Endpoint Security company McAfee™ can help you assess your risk with an Endpoint Protection Survey or Free IT Health Check and you’ll receive a complimentary £10 shopping voucher too!
There is at least a 50% chance your business or organisation will face a cyber attack and sadly it’s only going to get worse.

On the plus side, there is a truly effective answer and we’d like to give you the opportunity to get hands-on with the ultimate in threat protection at our powerful, interactive workshop.

A cyber attack or data breach is no laughing matter. They could cost you big time and that’s even without the potential GDPR fines from the end of May 2018. But we’d like you to have a damn good laugh at our expense and invite you to join us for a fun evening of laughter, fine food and refreshments on the evening of Thursday 24th May at the 99 Comedy Club in London’s Leicester Square.
With the dramatic increase in cyber attacks, the growth in ransomware and the forthcoming GDPR regulations, the necessity for businesses to fully protect their networks, endpoints and data has never been so critical. This was the core of the messaging that Andy James of Custodian360 delivered to over 70 attendees at the First Friday Club network event at the Cote Brasserie in Reading on Friday 6th April.
‘Protect your endpoints’ is the key message from all the IT security experts and with good reason. With all of us having so many devices – mobiles, smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, etc – the cyber attack or data breach threat is broader than ever and this fractured approach works in the cyber criminals’ favour. Many solution providers claim to have a product that can defeat or prevent an attack but few can claim total protection. One that can is McAfee©, arguably the most recognised IT security brand and market leader in Endpoint Security.
