Cyber Risks - the new Frontier

News >>

I am currently investigating what insurance solutions are out there for the risks now being found with hacking into private data, taking confidential details including credit card details and bringing down a Businesses Web site to the extent they lose revenue.

I have found one product through a market at Lloyds and I will look into it and advise shortly.

But in the meantime, check this link out which you may find helpful 

But since I have been in business, I get regular calls from persons saying they are with Microsoft and have detected an error with my computer. They get you to refer to a list within your computer listing lots of errors (which are normal for windows) then offer to clean them up for you. They ask to access your computer through a website to do so and you can watch them delete files. Trouble is, not only do they charge you for this service, but they plant a bug in your system which enables them to access your other files and internet banking. Avoid them.

Also I received advice that you should no longer click on links in your emails because the hyper link behind the text could lead you to a completely different web site. Instead cut and paste it into your Browser and see if it is legitmate or not.

There are emails saying "you have a virus, click on this link to remove it". Also a scam.

We do not want insurance solutions to pick up things we should be careful with anyway but common sense and "gut feel" will help. Speak only to your own fully accreditted IT specialist. If you need one let me know as I know quite a few who can help you out.

Robert Cooper - one of 100 faces of small business

This week it was announced as part of Small Business Week,  that Robert has been named one of the 100 faces of small business for a State Government promotion on the great value that small businesses play in the State of Queensland.

You can see Robert's entry here:

It is the third accolade for CPR Insurance Services in a month and after seven and a half years in business is a real pep up for the company.

For Robert, it is the culmination of many years experience, becoming well qualified, experiencing the highs and lows of a career and always wanting to contribute to his community. Sometimes, these things just come together and you receive recognition for your efforts.

Robert says that there is no doubt that starting your own business is a huge challenge, but with the right research and planning, the right people around you and a good set of values that you apply to the vision of the company, you have a very good chance of making it all succeed.

Robert says he is lucky. He has a strong supportive Wife, Mandy, who is also part of the business, along with efficient and hard working staff such as Julia McLauchlan and Aidan Harmer who are building up their own skills in a learning environment. 

However, the most important and most supportive people for CPR Insurance Services are our clients who have stuck by us and supported us over the past seven years. Our focus remains on providing the best possible service we can and always acting in their best interests. To all our clients, we say thank you!
