In an era where businesses are reliant on the digital space, investing in high-quality cyber security can mean the difference between swimming and sinking. The cloud has a reputation for acting as the ultimate life jacket, rapidly restoring essential systems and ensuring business continuity. However, there is much more to cloud-based disaster recovery plans than enhanced data security. Here are five benefits!Read More »
Online connectivity brings a whole load of problems with it.
It’s an increasingly important part of business and daily life, but the Internet of Things is set to become a massive cyber security headache for businesses if more isn’t done to protect it from hackers.Read More »
Can you protect your business from invisible threats?
With cyber security, it’s generally true that the less that seems to be happening, the better. Sure, you can check in the security logs to see what your defences have been up to, and you can set up alerts to inform you when an attack has been halted. But if everything is quiet, then disaster hasn’t yet struck, and that can only be a good thing – at least that’s what you might think.Read More »
It may not be all it's cracked up to be.
Insurance is meant to provide peace of mind, but if you’ve ever had to make a claim, you’ll know just how tricky it can be sometimes. Of course, it differs from insurance company to insurance company, but in many cases, they’ll look for any technicality possible to avoid paying out.Read More »

Data watchdog issues massive penalties for breaches.
Remember last year when GDPR was big news, and businesses were fretting about the potentially massive fines the ICO might be dishing out? Fun times.

The ICO made it clear that fines would be the last resort, and everyone calmed down just enough to stop worrying about data protection all the time.

Technology can make real, positive contributions to your business.
We write a lot about cyber security at TMB. It’s one of those unavoidable subjects that needs to be addressed, because it’s so important. But let's be honest: it’s not exciting. Most of the time, when it’s working, you’ll barely know it’s there, and it’s designed to protect your business, not to improve it. As much as security matters, though, there are many other reasons to invest in IT – in ways you’ll notice every day.Read More »
