The Internet of Things

The Internet of Things is one of the most exciting and fastest growing areas of the internet.

The web has moved from a fairly static place where authors published web pages, to the social web where everyone was able to post their own materials through platforms like YouTube and Facebook, to the internet of things where ‘things’, or devices, are connected through the internet, to other devices.

With 5g beginning to appear, it’s tipped to become even bigger and even more prevalent.

The downside is that cybercriminals are also using the technology, often in ways which we can’t imagine, to extort money or to assist them commit crimes.

Whole cities are becoming smart, as are our homes and businesses, so just as with other forms of physical security, it’s important that everyone takes steps to keep criminals out.

This video gives examples two of the most common ways that criminals are using the internet of things, and shows the sorts of things that can happen when simple internet security precautions aren’t taken.

It then offers some simple things that everyone can do to help make, and keep, their devices and networks safer.


Wellness

Everyone wants to live their lives in the best way that they can. And whereas we may do well in some areas, we often fall short in others.

The resurgence in wellness, well-being, and the ideas behind it illustrate how important it is to people today, and many organisations also realise that they can play an active part in helping employees and workers adopt a healthier lifestyle.

This video briefly looks at wellness and where we have got to today with our understanding of what wellness means. It then looks at different areas in our lives which affect our overall wellness and sense of fulfilment.

Although there’s a quick look at wellness as a global business, it stresses that, at its heart, wellness is a personal undertaking.


Ransomware

This video explains what ransomware is, and how you can make yourself less vulnerable to a ransomware attack.

Ransomware is a type of malware (malicious software) which designed to deny access to a computer system or data until a ransom is paid. Ransomware typically spreads through phishing emails or by unknowingly visiting an infected website.

Ransomware can be devastating to an individual or an organisation. Anyone with important data stored on their computer or network is at risk.

Recovery can be a difficult process that may require the services of a reputable data recovery specialist, and some victims pay to recover their files. However, there is no guarantee that individuals will recover their files if they pay the ransom.
