Ransomware threatens SA business environment

The State Of Enterprise Security In South Africa

This year we saw City Power in Johannesburg fall victim to a ransomware attack that not only crippled its Web site, but left consumers unable to buy pre-paid electricity.

Rethinking the organisational cyber security approach

The State Of Enterprise Security In South Africa

Our recent World Wide Worx survey, conducted in partnership with Trend Micro, has shown that local CIOs are not leading the company response when it comes to dealing with data breaches.

Why the key to innovation might lie in side-hustles (and technology)

We talk about innovation so much there’s a danger the term becomes devalued. Everywhere we look, we hear about the need to be innovative. Innovation changes the world, innovation drives us forward, innovation got us out of the cave. Actually, it’s completely wrong. Being able to come up with ideas hasn’t done anything. What got […]
