Email Security

I was reading an interesting article over the weekend that was posted on a BCLDC website. In the interest of educating yourself I thought you might be interested in reading it as well.

Email security

Please continue to be cautious whenever you receive a message that contains a link to a web-site or an attachment. Here are two recent reports that illustrate why:
On one day in mid August, a record peak of 25 billion malicious attachments to e-mails were sent. Those who opened the attachment were infected with software that can make it part of a botnet, a network of millions of computers that can be centrally controlled. No one has yet determined what use will be made of this new botnet.

A recent phishing attack lures the innocent with a lawsuit threat and the claim that an attachment is evidence that their computer has been used for criminal activity. Under such circumstances, would you open the attachment?

We don’t have to be victims, but we do have to be alert.

Genesis Hero of the Week:

While on his regular rounds a Genesis night guard was confronted by a man attempting to gain access to a secured location. Our man, Harinder interrupted the intruder and the gentleman fled. Thanks to his quick alert to the Police the man was later apprehended. Turns out the man was wanted by the police for questioning in connection with an earlier incident involving a stabbing. Kudos Harninder!!

End of summer!

Hello Everybody,
I would first like to thank all our clients new & old for another fantastic summer. I would often hear my employees when they come by the office laughing and sharing their great experiences that had at the various events we did over the summer. I would like to give a special thank you to End Cancer who we developed a relationship with this past summer providing security for the Ride to Conquer Cancer, The Underwear Affair and the Weekend to End Women's Cancer. As well to The Cloverdale Rodeo who we just finished our 8th year with. We hope to continue all our relationships in the coming years.
With Summer quickly coming to an end we now look forward to our fall events and it was just announced recently that we will be back to provide our support to soon to be open BC Place. Our team is extremely excited to get back into the swing of things since BC Place shut down for regular events to start construction and prepare to be centre stage for the 2011 Winter Olympics.
