Leaving Windows Behind

Leaving Windows Behind

As a techie, changing over from Windows to Linux was something I was always going to do, but never got round to. I’d run up a few virtual machines every once in a while, played with them a bit, didn’t find a compelling reason to swap over to Linux, so it was never...

Password Security (Part 2)

In password security part 1, I explained about the importance of having a strong password as the first and most important line of defence in any security strategy. I also gave you a site that allowed you to test how secure your password is (testing is essential in...

Why Your Website Should Have HTTPS

Why Your Website Should Have HTTPS
