Due to unprecedented demand, the UK's leading recruitment service for focus groups and consumer testing urgently needs more participants to come forward!

Saros Research Ltd have placed over a thousand participants into paid market research projects during the first quarter of 2014, ranging from focus groups to website testing to home-based trials of consumer products. Each project is unique, and ranges from a 90 minute focus group to a year-long online panel, and they are on every subject under the sun. Taking part in these professionally-run studies is always interesting and fun, and also very well paid - typical earnings for a 2 hour focus would be around 40 pounds.

As more than two fifths of employees admit to having stolen confidential information, little action is being taken by employers to defend against and punish perpetrators – leaving gaping security holes

London: LogRhythm has announced the results of a survey that suggests that while businesses are growing increasingly aware of the insider threat, they still lack enforceable controls to stop and punish perpetrators. The survey of 1,000 IT professionals, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of LogRhythm, found that more than a third (36 percent) of IT professionals believe employees would access or steal confidential information, yet 38 percent do not have, or know of, any systems in place to stop employees accessing unauthorised data. Surprisingly, less than half (48 percent) regularly change passwords to stop ex-employees gaining access and the most commonly used deterrent is the threat of disciplinary action (64 percent).

Just 60% of organisations have Change Management Controls in place, leaving 40% at risk from security threats or system downtime

Netwrix has released results of a new survey, which finds that a majority, 57%, of IT professionals have made undocumented changes to their IT systems that no one else knows about; while as many as 40% of organisations don’t have formal IT change management controls in place. Frequent system changes without documentation or audit processes can cause system downtime and security breaches from internal and external threats, while decreasing overall operational efficiency.
