More New Tech Gadgets This Christmas Season

Technology plays a key role in the success of Tecdis Network because it allows them better access to direct and clear communication. Project management is closely coordinated with local partners through direct communication managed by a multi-lingual control tower. High tech equipment is properly and safely handled until they are delivered to your doorstep.

This Christmas, many people will be receiving new tech gadgets like smart phones, tablets, gaming consoles and connected toys with the required apps to run them. However, new research results from cyber security training organization SANS Institute reveals that people are aware of the risks that the gadgets can pose but they do not have the skills to protect themselves.

A study of 1000 parents and 1000 students ranging from 14 to 18 years old in the United Kingdom revealed that 72% of parents and 68% of students know that the biggest cyber security risks to their family is theft of personal information. Only 26.7% of students who own and have access to a tablet consider their device as very secure because they have installed anti-virus software.

However, anti-virus software is not sufficient to make a gadget secure. Young people as well as their parents must be educated on how to spot a phishing email or suspicious websites. According to James Lyne, head of research and development of SANS Institute, people assume that they are not the target of cyber attacks. However, anyone who uses technology can be a target.

Since most young people are digitally literate they have to take a more active role in the cyber education for their parents. It is common for parents to lack the confidence to deal with the potential risks of connected devices. Security is not only about protecting personal devices but sharing the knowledge to reinforce the right online behaviours. This will minimize the exposure to online hackers.

If you are going to send technical equipment to a certain destination, your best option is Tecdis Network, a specialist logistics company that gets the work done on time. The logistics provider has all the right resources to ensure that the equipment is stored safely and delivered on time with technical installation completed efficiently.
