As the novel corona virus continues to unfold and change our lives on a daily basis, we would like to take a moment to wish everyone health and safety, and update our clients on the strategies and comments from our stand point.
We don’t have a prophetic view into the future. We don’t have a magic wand. But we do have an optimistic outlook and a tremendous amount of faith. Things like this happen from time to time. Granted this is unusual, but these things happen. Let’s all support each other in that distinctly Aussie way during this difficult period.
What the other side of this will look like is not clear, but it doesn’t have to be either. We know there is the other side, and it is up to us all to make it the best it can be. We can all look for opportunity to make the world a better place for everyone including our following generations, by being kind and considering one another during these times. Treating others as we would like them to treat us at this time is a simple and achievable rule to live by.
Who can you help today? Who’s world can you improve today, no matter what your circumstance?
We can help people navigate the Cyber Security and technical aspects, so that’s what we will be focusing on.
Regardless of your political bent, let’s all get behind the government of the day to support them. I’m sure this is very challenging for them as well. Now is no time for political point scoring in my view.
For us, it’s business as usual (well almost)

We’re all in this together. Some businesses will prosper in the current conditions, some maybe not so much. We understand that some of our clients may suffer some financial hardship during these times. If this is the case for your business consider the following…
- Government incentives and stimulus packages. There’s a lot of them. check them out at https://www.australia.gov.au/ You may be surprised at how generous they are.
