Zoom calls… Teams meetings… Google Meets… whichever tech platform your business uses *, do you ever get to a Friday evening and feel a bit “over Zoomed”?

How to feel less “over Zoomed” then…  here are three suggested rules that have worked well for us.

1. Do a tech test before every meeting:

Check your video and sound are working. Zoom has a test call facility at www.zoom.us/test

2. Never meet unless you have a written agenda:

And put the agenda on screen using screen share. This stops meetings from dragging on

3. Stand up, especially if you’re the organiser:

This is a good one for real life meetings, too. When you stand for a meeting your body will give you plenty of feedback when the meeting’s dragging. Standing desks are a great idea for productivity and keeping energy levels high, anyway.

How much could a data breach cost you?

£337,000.

Yep, you read that correctly. The average estimated cost of a data breach to a business is £337,000. Could you afford to lose that kind of money?

Few businesses could. And even if they could, recovering from a cyberattack is probably not their ideal way to spend hundreds of thousands.

So, how do you avoid this kind of expense? You need to get planning. Literally. You need a plan to prevent a cyber-attack; and respond to it if you’re hit. If you don’t already have one in place, move this to the top of your agenda. Cyber-attacks are on the rise.

They’re costing the world economy more than $1 trillion a year right now. And thanks to Coronavirus, that figure is set to rise, as cyber-criminals take advantage of the confusion caused by changing technology for the pandemic.

56% of businesses don’t have a cyber security prevention and recovery plan in place. If you’re one of those businesses, maybe we can help you?

For a limited time, we’re offering to create a cyber-crime prevention and recovery plan for businesses like yours.
