On behalf of the Activ team, we would like to thank all of those who attended our event on Thursday 20th July. It was great to see you all and we hope you found the morning beneficial, and discovered new ways you can help protect your business from emerging cyber security threats.
The event was a great success, not least because of the great range of speakers who were able to deliver insightful presentations on behalf of O2, IBM and Barclays. Simon Cockcroft from O2 detailed how the digital world is adapting around us and the steps businesses need to take to stay on top of the trends.
Andrew Dixon from Barclays discussed the widening threats of cyber-attacks, and the best ways in which we can protect ourselves, one way is to make sure your password is as strong as possible – a combination of three random words with special characters and numbers is recommended! He also explained how necessary it is to regularly update the security on all accounts, including social media, to avoid becoming a victim of a spear phishing attack.
Killian Delaney then introduced us to MaaS360, an easy-to-use mobile device management platform which gives you a powerful suite of tools to handle the management and security of all your mobile devices – and all from a single screen. The cloud-based software enables businesses to fully take control of their fleet of devices, whilst protecting their data. Features include the ability to blacklist specific apps, wipe lost phones and tablets, prevent data leaks with secure container policies and detect malware.
Mark Baggs discussed how the release of new legislation will require more and more businesses to record all of their telephone conversations with clients which includes those held on mobiles. O2 have released brand new mobile call recording software which enables businesses to meet this requirement whilst unlocking a range of beneficial features.
It was great to see so many of our existing customers and new businesses alike at the event, thank you once again for attending. If you weren’t able to make it this time round, you can still benefit from our limited offer of a free 30-day trial of MaaS360 – simply sign up here and use the portal in real-time on your live devices.
