Secure Email: Simplified

Despite the clear benefits of secure email, organisations and individuals continue to send unencrypted emails around the world, risking their digital security and email privacy.

Relying on unencrypted email is the digital equivalent of sending a postcard in the mail. Before landing in your recipient’s inbox, regular email travels through servers all over the world. Anyone who intercepts this communication can read the content.

Law firms, healthcare professionals, and social services need to ensure email privacy to preserve their clients’ confidentiality. Organisations and businesses of all sizes need to protect their data and intellectual property, as well as that of their clients and employees. Individuals should also never send any information via regular email that they would not be willing to share publicly. Read more

How Can You Increase Your Wi-Fi Security? Here are a few simple ways…

Failure to implement basic Wi-Fi security practices is leaving organisations vulnerable to digital security threats, yet there are simple steps you can take to increase your protection.

Separating guest Wi-Fi access

Free guest Wi-Fi is no longer a perk, but an expectation. Whether customers are visiting the bank or barber, their local coffee shop, museum, or department store, they expect to be able to find an internet connection. The same is true for business meetings. If clients or business partners visit, it is very likely they will want to be able to access their emails, calendars, and cloud-based files from your offices.

Allowing anyone from outside your organisation to access your company’s private Wi-Fi is risky. Not only could viruses and malware reach your network from guests’ infected devices, it could also provide a hacker with a route in to your company’s vital information and systems. As Wi-Fi becomes more powerful, it broadcasts further. Someone who has accessed your Wi-Fi previously could automatically connect to your network weeks or months later, without even being in your building. Read more
