Cyber Resilience in the Shipping Industry

For a business that transports 80% of the planet’s energy, commodities, and goods, shipping disappointingly slips under the radar when it comes to industries that have to be protected. However, this sleeping giant of an industry is slowly waking from its slumber and beginning to take action of its own.

Time for a Microwave Deep Clean

There are very few parts of the house that are more often used than the microwave, and especially with a family that microwave can get very grimy very quickly. All the grime and gunk, if left uncleaned, ends up in all the other meals that you put in the microwave, so we really do recommend giving your microwave a deep clean every so often.

Why you need Close Digital Protection

A new era in cyber security is fast approaching. The illusion that antivirus is enough to keep you safe is, thankfully, gone or going. Just protecting from one type of malware is not enough in the modern age. That’s exactly why the need for CDP could not be more pertinent. CDP allows an individual to protect not just themselves but their family too in a much more holistic and well-rounded manner.
