Phishing, Whaling and Baiting – how to avoid getting caught

Graeme Bailey

Recognising the very real threat which cybercrime now presents to the window and door sector, Business Micros has produced a cybersecurity bulletin to help businesses protect themselves.

The IT specialist makes the point that it’s no longer a question of ‘if’ businesses will become targets of cybercrime but rather ‘when’, so is trying to increase awareness of the latest threats and explain to businesses what they can do to combat them.

Covering everything from Ransomware and Spear Phishing to Spoofing, Whaling and Baiting, the new bulletin explains the dangers to look out for. Just as importantly, it gives straightforward advice on the practical security steps which everyone within a business can take to avoid being caught out. ..[ more ]

Letter to the Editor - Dan Sullivan DORCO

Dan Sullivan DORCO

Dear Ian

I read with interest the latest findings from Palmer and his forecasts for the continued growth of composite doors through to 2020 when he says they’ll represent two thirds of the market. It’s obviously great news for the industry – remember just a few years ago at the height of recession when our sector was staring down the barrel of a gun?

Growth markets present their own challenges and suppliers have the responsibility to ensure that they’ve invested strategically and in advance of market demand to ensure that downstream customers get the service, products, quality and innovation they need to meet the growth. This is precisely what DOORCO has been doing over the last 3 years, achieving a total investment close on to £5million in the UK and Korea. Indeed, the original decision to establish our own production facility in Korea - which has capacity for >900 doors per day - is now bearing fruit thanks to the fact it’s completely independent. The brand has no controlling suppliers/investors dictating UK policy, meaning that all elements of the business are decided by DOORCO only..[ more ]

Letter to the editor from Greg Johnson, Director at Warwick North West

Greg Johnson

Dear Ian,

Many home-improvements programmes like Grand Designs have introduced thousands of homeowners to the opportunity to welcome in vast amounts of natural light into their home and seamlessly blend inside and out, through excellent bifolding doors.

However, programmes like this always feature new build projects with large budgets, which allow homeowners to choose luxury bifold doors made from aluminium. Whilst they are an excellent solution, their price means they can be out of reach for the average homeowner. To meet this demand, installers need to offer an alternative that can match the versatility and performance of aluminium bifolds at a more accessible price, and uPVC is the answer. ..[ more ]

Yours sincerely,

Greg Johnson, Director - Warwick North West
