Is your computer’s antivirus and security software as affective as you think? It could be worth getting a second opinion.

We are living in a world that is ever more reliant on technology.

Now days, in Australia, you would be hard-pressed to find a business that doesn’t utilise a computer as a part of its day-to-day operations.

 

Whether it’s for basic invoicing and data storage or as a fundamental tool of your trade, the humble computer has become the workhorse of the modern business.

With that in mind, what would happen if you fell victim to a cyber attack? Would your business still be able to operate?

 

With scammers becoming more and more sophisticated, regular antivirus software is struggling to keep up. This is leaving businesses vulnerable to a security breach.

 

Today’s article comes from our friends at Universal Computer Solutions, a local Geelong based IT firm, and it talks to the best ways of combating a cyber attack.

Recently the staff at The Hrkac Group participated in the Multi-Sport Festival in Geelong.

The event saw staff from Accounting, Financial Services & Finance complete in either the 5km or 10km fun walk/run events.

It was a great team bonding event and a sense of personal satisfaction for everyone to complete the course.

As a result, we are hoping we may be able to participate in a similar event as a team later in the year.

Recently for Christmas 2012 – the staff of The Hrkac Group Accountants and Financial Services decided that instead of holding a Kris Kringle through their Social Club which is called FIFA, that they would instead donate money to the BayFM Bethany Giving Tree Appeal.

Through this effort over $200 was raised, allowing for some children in Geelong the experience of receiving a Christmas gift, when otherwise they may have missed out.

It is amazing the feeling you can receive from the gift of giving and the knowledge you have made someone smile….

The staff has other ideas in tow so we will update you on these as they occur…
