Why does my business need phishing training?

In 2020, businesses were forced into looking at alternative ways to continue providing their services during circumstances that can be described as unprecedented and unforeseen, to say the least. Forced to change their outlook, the globe saw a massive increase in remote working stats. As face-to-face became unacceptable, cloud-based hosting providers proved to be a vital part of the solution. Cloud computing partners Knowall IT London enabled companies to continue to operate, enabling online and hybrid working options.

As more and more companies turned to cloud-based options, cyber-criminals saw this as an opportunity for increased cyber-attacks.

Those who were already cybercrime-savvy already realised that is a vulnerable position to be in. Realising that cyber-criminals were on the rampage and those who looked into taking extra precautions to ensure their businesses did not become one of those sinister statistics, benefitted.

Cyber activity is not something that anyone should take for granted anyone who believes that their business is too small to be attacked by malware, spyware and or cyber phishing attacks must urgently revisit their stance. If you have no protection, you will be affected one way or another.

If you are someone has already increased your protection and is utilizing all the options at your disposal, now is not the time to become complacent as cyber-criminals up their game to find their way into your business. It is vital to ensure that your employees are on the same page as you. Part of protecting the personal information of your employees, your business suppliers, contractors and the like, is ensuring that all staff are made aware of the implications of a cyber invasion and that they understand the terminology and methods, such as phishing and scams, associated with this fairly new area of criminal activity.

It is possible, with awareness training, to ensure that you business is secure from the human error which is required for cyber-criminals to succeed in infiltrating your business, preventing the possible catastrophic loss of earning and generally bringing a stop to your operations, as fast as Covid did! Hackers and scammers utilising phishing techniques, rely on the fact that humans are naïve and can be easily persuaded into unwittingly clicking on a link that could bring your entire network to its knees.

Knowall IT offers your business Phishing Training where a live phishing simulation is affected on your network, allowing you to know for sure if your staff are ready for an attack when the real thing occurs… and it will. Being proactive in identifying employees who may place your business at risk keeps you one-step ahead of the hackers.

DIY Marquees – Marquees for all occasions

Marquees have always been a popular and sought-after option as an alternative to your regular venue hire options. This is mainly attributed to the unique sense of style which can be created when using a marquee as your preferred venue option. There is nothing quite like creating the specific ambiance, mood and atmosphere, as when you design and decorate your marquee venue, tailormade to your desires.

Notwithstanding the many great benefits of the marquee as the ultimate venue option, there are some aspects relating to the logistics of marquees that can leave some feeling unsure of whether the outcome is worth the effort. Stop and take a minute as we discuss some of the issues which may leave you feeling reluctant to opt for the marquee option.

  1. Its cold.

Yes, this is the UK and no one has ever claimed to have all the answers when it comes to the various weather-patterns resulting in our world-famous reputation for having 4 seasons in 1 day! Its true that using a marquee might leave you vulnerable to various elements however there is always an innovative solution to any element. So, you want to know how to heat your marquee, DIY Marquees would recommend setting up a powerful, indirect heater which will disperse heat through out the marquee. Situated at the entrance of the marquee facing towards the inside, your marquee will be cozy in a matter of minutes. For a larger marquee, add smaller indirect heaters at the corner and other such “dead” spaces where people are not mingling. That way you can prevent the cold from seeping in and keep your guest’s toasty.

  1. Not all terrains are made equal.

Anyone who has attended a glamourous event, hosted on a grassy terrain, knows how hard it can be to prevent your £1,245 Maisel 100 faux pearl-embellished, paper-thin stiletto Jimmy Choo heels from sinking into the grass below you, sending you tumbling into an embarrassing social faux-par! To ensure the ultimate comfort of your guests, you would want to place your marquee on a solid, even surface, but the question remains: How to anchor your marquee down on hard surfaces? Your traditional tie-downs will not work on a solid surface, so alternatives include bolting or drilling holes in the footplate, to which you can place straps to secure the marquee. Alternatively, use heavy weights, such as a concrete block, strapped directly to the marquee. No concrete blocks available, strap the marquee to a strategically placed car, or lead a strap through to a near-by grassy patch.

  1. Once size does not fit all

This concept apparently works in retail however we all know the truth is that there is no 1 solution or product which will suit everyone’s needs. Attempting to squeeze everyone into a one size fits all marquee, will not work. Luckily, DIY Marquees has the perfect solution to help customers to create a marquee perfect for their needs. From the size of the marquee, to the shape, space, function and location, visit the website’s Marquee Planner to create a replica to help you check all the boxes.

Lodge Brothers always here to help…

Lodge Brothers began as a family business currently run by six members of the Lodge family who are seventh generation funeral directors Isleworth. While the current extended Lodge Family across the UK is not necessarily blood-related, the bonds between all of the funeral directors at Lodge Brothers still run deep because of the shared heritage they have and because of the common goal that they share.  This is to ensure that each person who crosses their doorstep knows that they are in safe hands and can rest assured that no detail is overlooked. With so much experience and a deep love for what can only be called a vocation, Lodge Brothers funeral directors Datchet provide many options for the funerals, which honours the memory of the deceased.

Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors Roehampton are unequivocally the most accessible funeral Directors in the country which means that you do not have to go far to find us when the times comes that you should be looking for a Funeral Director. 2020 began with the harsh reality that we all need to expect the unexpected. Covid 19 has caused mayhem across the country and globally and sadly resulted in the passing of a great many people both young and old. While the older members of our country and those with underlying health issues, have been struck down the most, it does not mean that a person can afford to be nonchalant. Each person has the responsibility of taking action to ensure his or her health and safety and that of those whom are closest.  Lodge Brothers funeral directors Langley have seen first-hand how this global pandemic has affected many families which is why we are so grateful for the dedicated Lodge Brothers team who compassionately assist families at their time of grief.

Funeral directors have to focus on two major areas: taking care of the logistics and legalities involved in the passing of a person, as well as taking care of the emotional aspects ensuring that the life of the person who has departed is respected and celebrated in the way in which they lived. But to the Funeral directors at Lodge Brothers, this is not a stranger who has passed away… it’s your family and who becomes our family which is why we treat each instance with the love and respect we would give if it WAS our own family. No request is too much to ask and no need is less important than the next as every single decision which has to be made for help finalise the person’s life, is of utmost importance in order for you be supported the journey that you find yourself facing. Nothing is more important to Lodge Brothers than to ensure that we are always here to help

IBS leaders in Industrial Blower Equipment

Vacuum pump technology was first utilised since the first champions of the industrial revolutions brought this technology, the brainwave of scientist Otto von Guericke, into existence.  Developed and improved upon to create what has become one of the fundamental building blocks of industry in the modern era, with its hundreds of applications in several different industry sectors, vacuum technology has been said to be endlessly evolving, proving it one of the most critical invention of all the industrial revolutions. With the 4th Industrial Revolution in full swing, is there still a future for this type of technology in industry or are we looking at the end of an era for this science-based technical tool?

IBS has been in the vacuum blower industry for more then 3 decades and believes that from a current economic stance on business, the application of vacuum pump technology plays as important a role as ever before and that there no signs of this trend waning in the near future.  Certainly, the current application of the use of vacuum technology in retail, manufacturing and everyday packaging industries, such as plastic molding, washing systems in food processing, underwater aeration with commercial and household applications, PET coating on plastic bottles and dry freezing of packaged food and beverages, is a going concern. However, as the call for safer and more environmentally friendly, sustainability becomes the focus of growing concerns for the health and well-being of the globe and humanity itself, will we begin to see a decrease in the use of vacuum technology?

The answer is a simple no. More and more, it becomes evident that vacuum technology is here to stay. Although common applications may well change due to the changing demands from governments to make swift and steady changes towards sustainable business, vacuum technology is already being tested and proving vital in the developments of the 4IR. It is predicted that we will witness vital incremental improvements on seals and gauges, calibration methods with far superior accuracy will appear and even more specialised custom-designed vacuum facilities being created to accommodate rings, reactors, and portable industrial vacuum units. Side Channel Blowers and industrial Vacuum units stand to be developed as new products begin to appear as the market begins to adapt with the introduction of solid-state electronics.

 

  The prediction is that the vacuum pumps of the near-future will not only be more reliable with the capacity for vastly improved operations for distinctly longer periods of time, but will also prove themselves to be vital to the development of lasers, superconductors, catalysis as well as solar energy, microprocessors and computers. While it is hard to know for sure the exact developmental path of vacuum technology, it would be premature to begin a move away from what may be viewed as a technology whose time has come.

 

 

 

 

 

IBS Blowers is excited to be in an industry, which is crucial to the growth and development of industry and will continue to provide a vast array of products, both new and reconditioned, which can be recommended with confidence from now into the future.

Lodge Brothers serving the community for over 200 years

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you start to think about preparing for your passing? It could be that you want to prepare a will to ensure that your assets are evenly and fairly split between family members or to ensure that special items are guaranteed to be transferred to a specific person because of personal reasons which a legal attorney will not be privy to. It might be decided what kind of funeral you would prefer, so that you can take this burden off your friends and family who will be grieving your loss and so that you could ease their stress or because you have a particular vision for your funeral or memorial service. Or is it that you want to ensure that all of your viable organs are donated to the living once you are passed, or perhaps just a specific aspect of your physical body that you wish to donate to science and the like.

Lodge Brothers Legal Services Fees Image

There are so many aspects to the passing of an individual that most times, we forget that there are legal requirements as well as the will, which come into play. Especially if you have never had to be involved in the legal side of the passing of an individual, you would not have been exposed to certain aspects of the process. Without knowing what can be required, families can be left shell-shocked and unsure of how to execute all of the decisions which they will need to navigate if you do not choose to make these decisions for them.

This is why Lodge Brothers Probate Walton offers a number of special services that are pre-paid and which will alleviate your family’s stress and give you the final say in how you would like your affairs to be handled. These services include the preparation of last wills in testament, lasting powers of attorney and pre-paid Probate Woking services.

Choosing Probate West Byfleet services is a way in which you can assure that your final life decisions will be a certainty. Probate Ashford is required for ascertaining the value of your assets and liabilities, finalising any inheritance tax, preparing probate-related paperwork such as grants of Probate or Grant of Letters of Administration as well as collecting your assets within your estate and dealing with any liabilities after the Grant has been received. And to make things even easier and more certain, Lodge Brothers Probate  Weybridge Legal Services offers this service with fees that are both fixed and guarantees ensuring no unexpected surprises will meet your loved ones at the end of your life’s journey.

Probate Shepperton is a service that most people will need in order to sell or transfer property and shares and also in order to close bank accounts: all things which are very admin based and entrenched within legal systems which can be daunting to anyone who does not have knowledge of these areas. Probate is best left to the professionals which is why a visit to the Lodge Brother Legal Services team for a free, no-obligation quote is the best gift you could leave to your family when the times comes.

IBS are proud UK & US agents for:Robuschi Liquid Ring Vacuum Pumps

Understanding your industry is what IBS does best. Understanding the special equipment that your company uses and knowing how important it is to the functioning of your day to day business is the business of the professionals at IBS. With so many industries to consider, you would be forgiven for thinking that there is no one out there who has the level of understanding that you do, of what is required to make your company a success in the your industry but with IBS as your preferred supplier, you will never be without the assistance of top shelf engineering products, equipment and services for the maintenance of your business.

All industries from the food and beverage industry, the vast chemical and pharmaceutical industry, and the like, demands accurate and consistent industrial mixing equipment for the smooth running of the business. With Industrial mixing equipment there is no room for error as any small inconsistency can ruin the quality of your products resulting in a large amount of wastage which can sink your business, especially when the products are expensive per capita or made in quickly and in large quantities. Entire batches can cost you dearly with loss of product or worse, loss of your customer to your competitor. IBS chooses only the best products for your business which is why there are always plentiful stocks of Mix srl for mixing systems or their components and Olocco company for rotary and diverter valves.

Never let the cost of innovation stand in the way of your business’s success. Innovation during these swiftly changing times resulting from the 4th and indeed the swift on-set of the 5th industrial revolution requires that you keep your business up to date with the best equipment which helps you meet the needs of an innovating global market.

Sure i t is recognised that over the years, very little has changed in the function of pumps and valves however the application has become more diverse which is why certain specialised products, which have been designed for low airspeed airflow such as Gvf impianti can have a large and sustained impact on your business and that of the industry in which you operate. Dense conveying equipment used for low and high transfer rates of rough or abrasive materials where a dense phase convey produces the optimal result which is required for a large section of pneumatic conveying industry. This is a low-speed, slow and steady-style system which is why it is vital that the margin for error is minimal. Many pneumatic conveying specialists will understand that the correct conveyance phase for highly abrasive materials is most desired in order to meet the handling of your material requirements.

No matter the speed of the product output for your business needs it is important to utilise the systems which will help you to achieve your business goals and partnering with IBS will guarantee this result. Quality and quantity can mean different outcomes in different environments and not one size will fit all, in the fast-paced engineering and industrial business. Choose clearly with IBS products and the quality of products and services they provide.
