Welcome to a new year and our first Storage magazine eNewsletter of 2018, as the Christmas decorations go back in the loft and we all start to conveniently forget those all-too-rash resolutions. But there are some resolutions that perhaps we should all try to keep to this year. There are one or two very obvious ones: never just plug that USB stick into your work PC without checking it for malware first. The news this week has been full of the story of how the Taiwanese Criminal Investigation Bureau sent out 250 dodgy USB devices as prizes to winners in a competition about IT security. You couldn’t make it up.

But if there is a moral to the story it is that we are all ultimately responsible for our own protection in situations like this. Policies and technologies are important of course, but without education and awareness – on an ongoing basis – the best systems in the world are only as secure as the dumbest user. Happy New Year, and be careful out there!
