London, UK: Cyber Monday is the heaviest online shopping day in the United States, with last year’s sales exceeding $2 billion within 24 hours. Unfortunately, for bargain-hungry consumers, the holiday shopping season is a bonanza for cyber criminals.

A second security issue has been found in Dell devices. The new problem - similar to the first - could leave users' personal information vulnerable, researchers backed by the US government said.

Over the past decade work place demands have grown exponentially caused in no small part by ever demanding bosses who themselves are under the same pressures. In the extreme this leads to days off work and stress related issues. The modern work model of long and continuous hours in front of a computer or at meeting and answering emails 24/7 isn’t good for us emotionally and physically and it also isn’t good for our bosses as performance will inevitably sag. Now workers will be able to graphically show their bosses when they are ‘washed out’ a general sign of stress , by the coloured light LED system on the watch , so red light may really soon spell danger to overzealous bosses.

London, UK - ESET has commissioned a series of surveys of online shopping trends in selected nations: Britain, Germany, Russia and the United States.* [BO1] In terms of the habits of different nations, the results throw up some surprises. To name just one example, the crypto-currency Bitcoin has become a popular method of payment amongst Russians, at a time that their national currency, the ruble, is under pressure. What once might have seemed high-tech sci-fi is, according to these numbers, now becoming more of an everyday reality in some regions. ESET commissioned the surveys to coincide with a time of the year beloved by all passionate online shoppers, as offers proliferate on Black Friday (November 27) and Cyber Monday (November 30).

Despite eight out of ten IT decision makers experiencing a data or cyber security breach in their organisation in 2015, less than one-third plan to invest in cyber security technologies in 2016

London, UK: A survey* conducted by training company QA, reveals that eight out of ten (81%) UK IT decision makers experienced some sort of data or cyber security breach in their organisation in 2015. 66 per cent said that the breach had led to a loss of data, 45 per cent said that it had resulted in a loss of revenue, and 42 per cent said that it had resulted in a PR nightmare for the business. Despite this, however, less than a third (27%) plan to invest in cyber security technologies next year.

LONDON - ESET has commissioned a survey of online shopping trends in the UK which has revealed that just in time for Cyber Monday, Brits seems to finally be taking their online safety seriously, with 93 percent revealing they only buy goods online from websites they either know or trust personally, and 89 percent revealing they always use a security solution when shopping online.

Gabriel Gambill, Senior Systems Engineer for EMEA Quorum says: "In terms of having a solid business continuity (BC) plan in place, there is no more of a crucial time for the retail industry than the run up to Christmas. In the UK alone, approximately £810 million was spent on Black Friday last year - this is equivalent to more than double 2014’s total. Just as people fight in the aisles to secure a bargain, websites crash: as well as buyers, retailers need to be prepared to cope with demand. This is the period in which the majority of businesses in the retail industry start to see profit, so it is imperative that everything functions without disruption or downtime.
