Hi *|FNAME|*,

Welcome to our December newsletter.

Well just when you thought things couldn't get worse, the state of South Australia gets a lockdown all over a lie. Well at least we are backup up and running now but I hope you, your staff and your businesses are all ok.

Work for us has had its ups and downs this month due to the lock down but we are doing well. We even added another technician to out team, Osama Chohan. Osama holds a Bachelor in IT (Networking And Cybersecurity) from University of South Australia. He also has a lot of other certifications including Cisco, MS Certified Professional, MS Certified Trainer and MS M365 Security Administration.

With Osama's cybersecurity background and trainer certification we hope to be holding some seminars next year on SMB Cybersecurity and M365. If you would like to join us for this, or have any topic suggestions, please let me know ASAP so I can gauge interest and start planning.

If I don't see you, I hope December goes well and you have a great Christmas and New Year.

Security Tips

Security is one of the most important areas in IT. It is also one of the most overlooked areas, but if you lose all your data accidentally or in a hacking attack what would you do and how much money would it cost you?

This month we will talk about security audits.

Security Audits

Unlike actual physical security where an open window is easy to see, your cybersecurity weaknesses can be easily missed. You need to regular perform scans of your network and evaluate your security options - what once was state of the art a few years back may not be relevant or useful anymore.

Contact us at DP Computing to evaluate your security and check out our latest blog article:
