If we’ve given the impression that we’re at the heart of the security world, working with the organisations that spend billions on security – and with the companies that make billions by selling security products – you’d be right. And that puts us in an awkward position. Because we want to make security better for everyone. And sometimes that means speaking some uncomfortable truths.

This episode is the uncomfortable truth episode.

Small business and Managed Service Provider special!

  • Do small businesses face the same cyber threats as large organisations?
  • Are your security solutions 100% effective? And how do you pick a good one?
  • Where are the opportunities for MSPs to add value and make more money?

In June 2022*, we set up a panel of security experts to help and advise companies selling managed security services. Managed Service Providers (MSPs) need to choose a set of security solutions that they can use or possibly resell to their small business clients, known as SMBs.

The clients face the same cyber threats as large organisations, but they’re far less equipped to handle them.

We answer all of these questions and more with special guests Martin Lee from Cisco, Chad Skipper from VMware, and Luis Corrons from Avast.

The ‘cloud’ is integrating with our lives at ever more useful (or intrusive!) levels. We look at what securing the cloud means in the real world.

Is it possible to secure your online life when you don’t control all of the systems in use?

Is anyone testing cloud security, or do we simply need to accept marketing claims?

Don’t lose your cryptocurrency to hackers and scammers. Our security tips focus on cryptocurrency investors.

What does a personal hack attack look like? Backups never seems more attractive…

But we do have an insight into how Mac threats work and how Apple tries to protect users. In this article we cover everything you need to know.
