Prize Draw: Winner

Firstly I would like to thank all those who took the time to complete our customer surveys and you were very kind with your feedback.

Following the compilation of all 4 surveys results, placed in chronological order and then drawn by a representative onsite at Holy Family Catholic Primary, I can announce the winner as Sue Green at Burley Park Children’s Centre. Sue will receive her £25 M&S vouchers shortly.

Following the success of this exercise we have scheduled another survey in November which will be another prize draw.

If I could ask for suggestions of the prize for the draw be sent to myself via email: darrenr@connect-up.co.uk

Anti Virus Update

Anti Virus

The Latest Technology Working For You

Exploit Blocker: A powerful defence against threats avoiding detection. Stops attacks on  browsers, document readers and email clients.

Advanced Memory Scanner: Gives you extra protection from heavily-encrypted malware. Scans for threats directly in the system‘s memory.

Lighter, Faster build: Extremely small updates and ESET‘s cloud-powered scanning delivers faster scans.

 

Good browsing practices can take you pretty far. If you aren’t browsing non-approved sites, downloading files from suspicious sources, and clicking links from people you don’t know, you’ll put yourself at less risk for viruses. But you can still get infected

Many people think that you can only get malware by downloading suspicious files, running unpatched software, visiting the wrong websites, and doing other irresponsible things, but this isn’t the only way malware can spread.

There are “zero-day” exploits – vulnerabilities that the bad guys find first. Ones we don’t know about, which we can’t protect ourselves from. These flaws are corrected as soon as they’re found, but new ones inevitably pop up.

In other words, your computer could be infected just from you visiting a website. Even if you only visit websites you trust, the website itself could be compromised – something that happens with alarming frequency these days.
