Computer and Network Security

With all of the personal information stored on computers today, there’s nothing more important than making sure they’re secure. Protect your financial records, photos, personal emails and other private data from identity thieves by letting us secure your computer for you. We will make sure your systems are locked-down and safe from unauthorised access. What will we do? Here are just a few of the more obvious items:

Your router’s default username and password will both be updated to ones of your choosing.

We’ve seen a steady increase in the capabilities of Wi-Fi over the past decade, along with a dizzying array of acronyms to go with it. If you’re au fait with the difference between, say, 802.11b and 802.11n, that’s fine — but very few folks actually are. That’s also coincided with an immense growth in the… More 

It doesn’t feel like all that long ago that my viewing choices for the evening comprised just two channels. I grew up in regional NSW, and I could pick from the local regional commercial channel, or the ABC. Programs were on, and then they weren’t. If I missed a program, too bad. My best bet… More
