Have you been binge-watching boxsets over lockdown? What’s your favourite? Have you got a guilty pleasure?
We’ve belatedly discovered NCIS, with the dynamic investigation team led by Special Agent Jethro Gibbs. It features stories, more often than not involving the mysterious death of a marine, in which NCIS (the Naval Criminal Investigative Service) are called in to investigate.
Imagine our surprise, then, when an episode strayed into the realm of cybercrime and hackers! Gibbs has clearly never listened to a Computer Troubleshooters BNI 60 seconds, as his solution for stopping a computer from launching a deadly hacking attack on the Pentagon is to shoot it. To be fair, he did try turning if off (but not on again) first!
If you are intrigued, you can see it for yourself – series 8 episode 16 Kill Screen. Watch out though, you could find yourself hooked and there are 18 series of NCIS with plenty more spin-off episodes!
If you are faced with a hacker attack, don’t shoot your computers, call the Computer Troubleshooters! You will need support and guidance to make sure that your business can recover from their crime. Better still, consider implementing a plan to prevent the cyber criminals. You can make sure that your systems are protected and your staff are trained to be on the lookout for suspicious emails.
And should you visit BNI, you can picture Gibbs’ solution to hacker attacks when you hear the Computer Troubleshooters’ catchphrase:
Don’t shoot your computers, call the Computer Troubleshooters!
The number’s 01732 300064.
