We are now two months in to GDPR regulations and some businesses are still unsure of what this means for them. From a cybersecurity perspective, GDPR requires that personal data must now be processed securely using appropriate technical and organisational measures. Although the new regulations does not command a specific set of cyber security measures for your business, it expects business owners to take ‘appropriate’ action.

The new kid on the malware block in 2018: Cryptojacking

Cryptojaking is the unauthorised use of someone else’s computer to mine for cryptocurrency. They do this because you need a lot of electricity and processor power to make any real money with coinmining, so they steal other people’s. This can cause your computer or mobile phone to run painfully slowly as well as draining your battery power and can be installed on your mobile by downloading Apps Android Store from untrusted websites.
