Our blog, about stories and business-focused news from the IT sector
Many of us at Bristol IT Company are parents (even grandparents!), and we all recognize the risks and threats that the internet and social media pose to our children.
So we are proud to be supporters of Safer Internet Day.
What is Safer Internet Day
Safer Internet Day happens in over one hundred countries worldwide. This year it's Tuesday 6th February. Its goal is to promote safe, positive use of digital technology for children and young people.
We apologise for interrupting your day, but we thought we should offer some guidance about the widely reported security vulnerabilities, Meltdown and Spectre.
This is a layman's guide, so if you're a technically-literate reader you may find some things a bit over-simplified.
We apologise for this, too, but the emphasis here is how it might affect people, rather than technical detail.
