SA Technology Collective

I am lucky to be one of the inaugural members of a new group called the South Australian Technology Collective. The Collective is a group of complimentary business who can provide a total digital solution for your business. We are passionate about supporting and enabling business owners to solve many of the challenges they face using digital technology in this rapidly evolving field. I will be including more details of the Collective in upcoming newsletters but in the meantime please contact myself or check out our website at for more details.

Security Issues

Recently their have been a couple of significant security breaches. The first relates to the KRACK wifi vulnerability - for more details check out our article:

The second is a malware program called Bad Rabbit. Bad Rabbit will encrypt all files on the local computer and also attempt to break into other computers on the local network. Make sure all your antivirus and operating systems are upto date and contact us to install the Bad Rabbit vaccine to help you stop getting infected.

Grow Your Business Expo

On the 9th of November we will be exhibiting at the Grow Your Business Expo in Tonsley. This is a large regional event showcasing exhibitors which offer business to business support and the latest in technology to help businesses thrive.

Out & About in October

As usual we have been busy in October, some of our adventures include:

  • David P and Dave F attending the SMBiT Professinals annual conference in Brisbane. We both learnt a lot of new business and technical topics as well as meeting a lot of vendors and other computer techs from around Australia.
  • David attended a buiness breakfast at Titanium Arena (home of the Adelaide 36ers). As well as a great talk by the 36er's coach, David met some of the players, had a tour of the changerooms and went onto the main court.
