If businesses want to prevent attacks like this happening, they need to ensure that everyone has basic cyber hygiene: that they know the basics to prevent a breach, how to spot potential attacks and understand the implications of their actions on the wider company, and even economy.

As the threat of cybercrime intensifies both on and around the planet, there's never been a more important time for organisations to batten down the hatches to protect themselves. By adopting these types of approaches however, businesses will be able to strengthen their defence and ensure they don't become the next cyber-attack headline.

Couch To Marathon

When I started running, it was something I did alone and, dare I say it, in 'secret' for a while. Because I wasn't talking about it with anyone, and wasn't aware that any of my friends were into running, predictably I resorted to the Internet to tell me what I needed to know.

Less Than Half Of GPs Train In Mental Health

For most of us, our local GP practice is the first place we go when we're unwell - whether it's related to our physical or mental health. That's why it's surprising to learn that less than half (46 per cent) of trainee GPs in England undertook a training placement in a mental health setting in 2015, according to data obtained from Mind.

Primarily, I'm getting back into a fitness regime. Running is my happy place, you see - it's where I make amends for my mistakes, and group my thoughts into something vaguely resembling order. It's also a loosely crucial part of scaling 26.2 miles in 35 degree heat next May. Obv.

During that process to become "approved" you are given training and preparation. But nothing prepared us for the monumental task of learning to become a parent to a traumatised young child who was effectively a stranger and one that didn't want to be there.

Adding a String to the Bow

So perhaps a drama school that endeavours to train its students how to be an actor, should enlighten graduates as to just what is possible. Promotional work, corporate work, work that uses the skills they have learnt as actors to engage with the public. Somebody has to wear that Sponge Bob Square pants suit in the shopping mall on a Saturday afternoon. How much better for all concerned if it's somebody who can really make it look fun.

Zátopek's commitment to self-torture encourages us to do anything but spare ourselves the ordeal of going out in the rain or wind. When you next approach a treadmill, think of Zátopek running through deep sand in heavy boots - and consider where it got him.

Back to school - It's Not About the Shoes

I was talking to one of the other facilitators at The Parent Practice, Juliet Richards, this week about going back to school.... As you do when the summer holidays haven't even begun! She said her teenagers will still need some help and 'encouragement' in September to get themselves organised, but it will be easier than it has been before. They're used to it, after all.

How to Run in the Rain

I gave the issue some thought once I'd got home. Rainy / muddy running was sort of my forte when I was in the army. I doubt we ever really went on a 'fair weather' jog, to be fair. And it was never really that bad. Or maybe I've just forgotten...

There's more to a running buddy just than a matchable pace. Spending circa 50 minutes in step with someone really does require a certain degree of friendship. And they've gotta be able to nail your outfit shot at the finish. Obv.

Pure Intentions and Sheer Willpower Can Make Long-hour Fasting More Liberating

Ramadan demands that Muslims be positively active and dynamic in their community and wider society. As a people of faith we have a unilateral obligation to work for the good of all. We have the obligations of good-neighbourliness, of being concerned for others, to share their joys and feel their pains and to provide support and help wherever we can.

I'll be doing quite a few hours to help me prepare mentally and get used to the track before my debut. Because Le Mans is a street circuit, I've only been able to drive the rack in a simulator before, because it would be impossible to drive around in a racing car outside of testing or the race itself.

With the world of racing being so physically and mentally demanding, it's nice to get away from it all - especially before the buzz of Le Mans kicks in. But with just under four weeks until the race, it's still crucial that I keep in shape for when I get back.

Why Training People Leads to a More Innovative Business

Mark Farrar | Posted 02.05.2016 | UK
Mark Farrar

Training is often viewed as only applicable for learning new skills and so employers do not always deem it necessary for some roles. The reality is that training delivers so much more. Absolutely, it builds new skills and increases knowledge - however, it also helps to reinforce the confidence in individuals, helping them to recognise their own capabilities.
