Welcome to #WeekendWisdom number 1. This will be a new weekly series of short one to two minute videos where I will be providing some advice on a particular Cyber Security topic.
The first annual report from the Data Protection Commission, under the auspices of the GDPR has just been released.
A colleague at another company forwarded me an email he’d received knowing that I’d get a kick out of it. It claimed to be from the UK GDPR Compliance Directory and that his company was not GDPR compliant. Of course no such directory exists and this was nothing but a ruse.
Whatsapp Authentication sucks. It sucks really badly. I’d never thought about it before, but then I saw this tweet yesterday. A lady got a new phone number and when she set up Whatsapp, she had a load of messages on there from the previous owner of the number.
How did you hear about the Luas Ransomware incident? Was it on the news? Online? Facebook? Twitter? Instagram? Or did you happen to visit the website to check some fare information and get confronted by a very basic ransom demand.
My name is Liam Lynch and I founded L2 Cyber Security Solutions in January 2016. I have over 30 years of experience working in IT. I found I had an inherent ability when it comes to security, both physical and digital. To paraphrase Cole Sear, the child in the movie The Sixth Sense, “I see Data Breaches!"
I live to the maxim #SecuritySimplified, as I can talk to people of any level in plain, simple English. Even technical, scary subjects such as Cyber Security and boring, legal topics like GDPR are delivered in a common, easy to follow language.
I have worked with a number of companies over the years. From small operations to large corporations. I found that, in spite of massive expenditure on technological security solutions, these can all be thwarted by "Dave" in accounting opening an “invoice” (i.e. evil software) in an e-mail which has sneaked past all of the filters, firewalls and anti-virus.
By showing people all of the different techniques and scams the evildoers use, they then learn what to look out for. Along with easy to understand language, I use humour to make the training fun and interesting.
