Cyberattacks have been part of Australian organisations’ landscape for a long time now, and as businesses embark on a ‘digital-first’ approach we are seeing the cyber threat landscape expanding. Today, there are more cyberattacks, data leaks and ransomware activities than ever before.

The idea that older workers struggle more than their younger colleagues with technology has been debunked by a comprehensive new survey by Dropbox.

With 48 million cyber security incidents in 2014 alone, one really dangerous thing for SMB owners to think is, “We’re not big enough for cyber attackers.”

In a country as large as Australia, it’s quite hard for health professionals to reach remote patients or for remote health businesses to reach resources to deliver better care to their patients. That’s why REND Tech Associates created Cloud for Health. This solution enables remote health professionals to have access to software, resources and support that’s the same as city based health professionals. No longer can it be said that the Australian medical professions suffers from the ‘tyranny of distance’. REND Tech is helping doctors save lives in remote areas, and that’s cool.

From time to time, when I’m sitting in an airplane, I think about the movie “Up In the Air.” I’m not thinking about how the main character feels most comfortable when flying from place to place, or how he has the awful task of firing good people on the ground. No, I think of a certain scene where the lead, played by George Clooney, informs a person he’s just sacked that “anybody who ever built an empire or changed the world sat where you are now.”

Ovum's "Is your city smart enough?" says that cities should start integrating information technologies into their infrastructure so they can become more competitive in the future.

It's a stupid question. But, having said that, it was the first thing that passed my lips on watching this teaser: Does the world really need another web browser? I love Mozilla. Colleagues have embraced Chrome. And your grandma probably still uses Internet Explorer. (Yup, that was bitchy.) Of course, internet users the the world over could always benefit from a better browser. But is this it?

Even though Australia enjoys an excellent budgetary position by world standards, fiscal policy has been a big issue for the current federal election. In a tight election, each party argued hard that their policies would deliver the biggest budget surplus over the next three years. However, when this year's historic post-election dramas are over, the winner will be faced with the challenge of some serious belt-tightening if it is to deliver on promises. Whichever party wins, the next three years will herald another period of efficiency drives and cuts.

With the much-anticipated (and delayed) Australian launch of the iPad only four days away, David Moore looks to the past and considers whether there will be any real-world value in this new technology. Will it mark an evolutionary threshold in computing or will it be assigned to the technology basement of probably-shouldn’t-have-beens?

A recent report by independent tehcnology analyst Ovum has discovered that approximately $37. 5 billion of IT contracts will be up for renewal within the next six months.

Picture this. You are at a party. You casually mention a problem you’ve had with your computer. Before you know it, someone you barely know creeps up and whispers the words “you need a server” and then disappears before they ever really showed up. You are left confused and on your own with those words ringing in your ear.

Last month’s launch of Apple’s iPad tablet computer has prompted many people to wonder where netbooks stand in the scheme of modern computing. Joel Montgomery provides a useful snapshot of the pros and cons of buying and owning a netbook.
