  • If you're using Zoom video and audio conferencing for business, you need to think about adding secure layering

    Zoom launched in 2011 and offers free or paid meeting/conferencing facilities. By December 2019, the app was used by about 10mn consumers across both sides of the business. There was no way the company could have foreseen how use would balloon during the coronavirus epidemic. By March 2020, more than 200mn users were registered and active on the app (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-52133349). In much the way that the word “Google” is a recognised verb denoting online search, the word “Zoom” has become synonymous with online video conferencing. The app’s popularity has seen the company share price more than double through March, at a time when most shares are dropping like a stone.

  • 123456: why bad passwords are bad news for your online security

    It seems nowadays that everything needs a password, from paying your household bills to speaking to a customer service assistant on the phone. Companies have taken steps to make sure your password is secure, from asking you to change your password regularly to providing strict password guidelines, like asking for an upper case letter and punctuation to be included. But why is it such a big deal? Is it all a fuss about nothing? Would 12345 be fine? Unfortunately not, and at <a href=”https://www.1stcalldetectives.com/index.php">1st Call Detectives</a> we take your online security really seriously.
