Welcome to our December Tech Update. In this months newsletter we talk about security, a new collective that DP Computing is part of, our regular Out & About section and lastly links to our latest blog articles.


With another large company (Uber) hitting the headlines after being hacked how can a small business protect itself from the same fate? Business cannot just rely on security software and must implement a multi layered approach and include corporate grade security software, a proper hardware based firewall, cloud filtering of email as well as local and cloud based backups. Contact us or check out our blog article for more details -

Always be carefully with what emails you open and what websites you visit. Also if you believe one of your associates has sent you a dodgy email ring that person back - don't email them back as there has been reports of the actual hacker replying back to emails.
