In the past year, 69% of companies have either started or continued migrating their IT systems to the cloud. This data also shows an increase in businesses that have migrated specifically to cloud-based camera systems.

New year, new tech! Find out why now is the perfect time to trade your traditional cameras for a cloud-based system...
Businesses can’t afford to rely on outdated technology and old security methods. We’ve seen a surge in vandalism, targeted theft, and workplace violence.

In this digital world, cyber security and physical security are no longer two separate thoughts – they must be intertwined. No matter the size of your company, all organizations need to future proof their security strategy in the new year...
Have you received an increase in emails from social media websites or your favorite brands?

Brand impersonations (or brandjackings) have increased by 274% last year as attackers continue to peddle their scams by looking like they come from reliable sources.

β›” As we always say at CN: DON'T CLICK THAT LINK!
Before falling for the next phishing scam, always investigate the credibility of the email. The latest scam? An extensive credential-harvesting campaign has hackers leveraging Facebook copyright infringement notices to steal enterprise credentials.

πŸ‘ What can you do to protect your accounts?
  1. Always double-check sender addresses.
  2. Hover over all URLs before clicking anything.
  3. Logging into your Facebook account (or other relevant account) directly to check the status of the account, instead of clicking on the URL in the email and entering your credentials.
  4. If it smells "phishy", delete it. Odds are you aren't missing anything important!
  5. BONUS tip: Change your social media passwords at least twice per year!
