Welcome to your monthly downloadable Cyber Bytes newsletter, your one-stop-shop for news, updates, tips and narrative around what has been happening in the cyber security sector this week.

Cyber Skills are now a Universal Requirement

The UK economy, like much of the world, is becoming increasingly digital. The Tech Nation 2017 report found that the UK digital economy was growing at twice the rate of the non-digital economy, and had a turnover of £170bn in 2015. 

Police Hand Out Malware-Infected UBS’s as Prize in Cyber-Security Quiz. 

Taiwanese police have handed out malware-infected USB thumb drives to the winners of a cyber-security quiz at a data security expo hosted in December last year by the country’s Presidential Office. 

Cryptocurrency as the lure, an ISO as the attachment – why not open it? 

You can’t move these days without bumping into words such as cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, coinminer and blockchain.

With Bitcoin’s value up more than 1000% in the past year, and with companies multiplying their share price simply by adding “Blockchain” to their names, you can see why these words are everywhere.
