Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council

Posted on Monday, August 17th, 2015 in Events

Here at Bob’s Business, we are very pleased to announce it’s been five years since Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council first started their journey to a more secure culture in their organisation along with Bob’s Business, and they recently renewed for the fifth time! We are very glad they are as committed as we are to keeping their organisation’s data secure and we are excited to be celebrating their five year anniversary with us! We have thoroughly enjoyed working with and even building more modules alongside them, including Risk management, Business continuity, Mobile Working, GCSX (now defunct) and PCI DSS (please find them on our Products page for a brief summary of what these modules entail) A few words from Ryan James to commemorate the 5 year anniversary we’re currently celebrating:

Could You Spot a Phish?

Posted on Tuesday, August 11th, 2015 in Cyber Security

At Bob’s Business it’s our primary focus to teach organisations how to protect their data and mitigate phishing attacks. By nature, we all make mistakes, and the majority of us will at some point get caught up in a phishing net; our aim is to keep you up to date on the best practice.

It’s no surprise that phishing attacks are becoming increasingly common when human error remains one of the easiest ways to infiltrate a network. And to add fuel to the fire, it’s easier than ever for spammers to get hold of your email address thanks to automated software, hackers and data purchasing. ‘Phishers’ cast a wide net in the hope that just one person will fall foul to the attack.

The scale of the problem

Every day, over 150 million Phishing emails are sent. Almost 16 million of which get through spam filters, 8 million are opened, 800,000 links are clicked, and 80,000 users fall victim to cyber criminals. Daily!

The phishing stories we often hear in the news are only the tip of the iceberg. It might surprise you to know that around 70% of organisations keep their worst security incidents under wraps!

Think Before You Click!

But fear not! Our simulated phishing campaign will enable your employees to understand everything they need to know about Phishing and safeguard your critical data and theirs.

‘Think Before You Click!’ is a powerful, engaging training campaign that will show your staff the very real dangers of Phishing, and teach them how to protect your organisation and themselves in a way they will never forget.
