Site development news

All the usual updates on our blogs and guidance sections.

We have also added some new sections to our guidance pages:

  • Book Reviews – this is where we intend to cover a lot of the printed material we read on a regular basis
  • Guidance Categories – This is a categorisation of our extensive back catalogue of blog posts on several subjects in Cyber Security and Privacy
  • Guidance page slightly reformatted
  • The Guidance Menu has also been changed to add direct links to the individual guidance pages.

We have also updated our homepage to give it a fresh look. It now contains selected listings from our guidance pages, which we will rotate on a regular basis.
