Welcome to #WeekendWisdom number 59. This week we’re going to do a review of 2020.
The year in Ransomware:
2020 started out with a number of #Ransomware incidents that were occurring over the New Year period. Ransomware became a greater threat throughout the year, with increased demands by the criminals looking to extort from their victims. So I continue to hopefully offer advice and guidance to you, on how you can protect your business from these threats.
The end of Windows 7:
We also saw the end of support for Windows 7. So if you’re continuing to use a #Windows7 machine in your organisations, you really need to get off that platform and move on to the more recent Windows 10 or other operating systems.
The COVID-19 Pandemic:
And of course 2020 brought us the biggest news of all with the #COVID19 pandemic. I provided lots of advice and guidance on how you can get your staff working from home safely and securely. Protecting both themselves and your business from the threats that were out there.
The Zoom Bombing phenomenon:
And one of those threats of course was #ZoomBombing, which I dedicated an entire video to, on how you can protect yourself from that.
All the rest in the Review of 2020:
There’s lots of other little bits and nuggets of information which I thought were maybe interesting and useful. I hope you found them similarly and I hope to continue to provide these to you in 2021.
So with that, I would just like to wish you and yours the very happiest of Christmases and I hope you have a safe and secure New Year.
So that’s it for this year. Let’s be careful out there and we’ll talk to you again next year.
