Bring Your Own Device
Bring Your Own Device

Your employees bring their own devices to work every day, they sign in to your company network and they answer work emails when at home. While there are clear benefits from such behaviour, employers and employees alike also need to understand why there are potential issues just around the corner.

Hackers and Hacking
Hackers and Hacking

The main reason that so many small businesses are hacked is because of insufficient security measures so a change in attitude is needed. Don’t put off improving your security thinking that it will never happen to your business: that’s a tactic destined for failure.

Keeping Your Data Safe
Keeping Your Data Safe

Protecting your company data should be at the top of your priority list – you don’t want customers losing confidence in you because you have not secured their details; nor do you want to miss out on sales because of data going missing.

What's inside

This book is designed for, and inspired by, parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, teachers, caregivers, and anyone who helps raise children.

With this in mind, I have created this guide that uses real-world examples drawn from my family, my friends, and people just like you. Together, we all share responsibility for their well-being. We’re the role models. We’re the ones who give them the tools, knowledge, and wisdom that will set them on the right path of life. Through us, they learn to cross the road safely, how to deal with strangers, and simply how to enjoy a happy, healthy life. Today, we live in an online world. My hope is that you’ll find some of the solutions in this book inspiring, put them to use, and then pass them along.

Even if you take only one piece of advice you’ll still be one more family who’s safer than they were before - and you’ll be one more family who can be an example for others. The approach is time-tested and direct: advocate good morals, and practice what you preach. That’s the way we’ll all stay safer online.

Excerpt

“It seems like just about everything connects to something else these days. It’s been that way for some time actually and, increasingly, these connections are made wirelessly. The days of pesky wires and cables are passing us by and entering the age of wireless. Look around. Our computer connects to the printer. Our TV connects to the Internet. And our phone connects to the toilet.

Yes, I did say the toilet.

Trust me, I wish I was kidding, but I’m not. In fact, the BBC News posted an article on a luxury toilet designed to play music, dispense fragrance, and flush - all by remote control using a smartphone app. While you might think they wanted to run that article for laughs, there was actually a serious issue with the luxury toilet in question. The thing is, this “connected toilet” could get hacked.”
