Small businesses holding onto customer data for no reason
Speaker 1 (01:16):

A cyber security expert says far too many small businesses hold too much information about things they don't need. It comes as the country comes under increasing cyber attacks, with criminals looking to mine personal data.

Two-factor authentication

Jesse Mulligan:   It's Tuesday and time to talk tech with Daniel Watson who is owner and Managing Director of Vertech IT Services. If you've got any questions or topics you'd like him to help with, send us an email to jesse@rnz.co.nz and we can hopefully cover them in a future session.

Cyber Threats From Within

Cyber Threats from within are much more common than you might think. A couple of years ago Daniel was the victim of such a crime and in his latest episode with Jesse Mulligan at RNZ, he touches on his experience with Internal Fraud.

A common misconception is that if you know and trust the person, it certainly can’t be them, but this person might actually be the most trusted person within your organisation or someone you personally know.

Ways we can get the most out of our wifi at home

This week Daniel joined Jesse Mulligan to talk about getting the most out of your wifi at home.

In a world where good human connection and interaction extends a far as your wifi range, having it perform at it's peak is a must. There is nothing more frustrating than having a conversation with someone and the call cuts out or worse, the video freezes, highlighting a "self portrait" you would never dream of sharing with anyone.

Windows 11 upgrades.. DON’T! Not yet anyway

Windows 11 is here! Microsoft has started rolling out the upgrade which is free to eligible windows 10 devices, Our Team is enthusiastically testing out & exploring the beautiful new features but right now we are recommending that our clients hold off upgrading as there have been reports of some Antivirus software having issues post upgrade.

Like buckling your seatbelt

Investing in IT services is a bit like buckling your seatbelt – seemingly unnecessary much of the time, but potentially fatal when it’s not done.

What you need is a more efficient way to stay up-to-date … and this is it
