According to the latest IBM security report, which we mentioned in our last blog post, longer passwords made up of strings of words are now considered much safer and harder to crack than alpha-numeric and special character passwords.  These passwords, more accurately described as passphrases, can be a combination of words or an entire sentence.    As copywriter, I'm thrilled by this revelation.  It means I can start to create passwords that mean something to me that I can remember more easily and that won't be easily guessable or hackable by others. For example, instead of Write12copyWOW! I can choose a string of words such as BuffyandSpikenotAngel.  (Can you guess what show I loved?) Or something like VampiresareBillandEricnotTwilight. (Are you spotting a theme here?) Or I could take a line from a favourite song (All Along the Watchtower) springs to mind - lots of lines there for me, or you...

At Berlin Web Studio we know that keeping your website secure is one of the major concerns of our clients.  When we maintain sites, we ensure that they are protected, but keeping one step ahead of the hackers means that we have to keep on our toes.  One way we do this is to keep abreast of security warnings and developments made by world leaders in internet security such as IBM.  IBM  today released the results of its X-Force 2012 Mid-Year Trend and Risk Report, which shows a sharp increase in browser-related exploits, renewed concerns around social media password security, and continued challenges in mobile devices and corporate "bring your own device" (BYOD) programs. Data for the bi-annual X-Force report comes from IBM's security operations centres which monitor more than 15 billion security events a day on behalf of approximately 4,000 clients in more than 130 countries. "Companies are faced with...

E-commerce is growing and growing rapidly. The Financial Times recently reported that the UK is the world leader in ecommerce, predicting that the sector will contribute £225 billion to GDP by the year 2016. Further to this, small businesses that embraced the internet for sales and marketing were seen to grow by 12% per year.   Across the EU as a whole, the European Commission states that "the development of electronic commerce and online services offers enormous potential for beneficial economic, social and societal change. The Internet economy creates 2.6 jobs for every 'off-line' job lost, and offers a better choice to consumers, including those in rural and isolated areas. The gains brought by lower online prices and a wider choice of available products and services are estimated at EUR 11.7 billion, equivalent to 0.12 % of European GDP. If 15 % of retail sales were e-commerce and the obstacles to the...
