BCL Cyber Security Upgrades Commencing July 2018
Globally, cyber-attacks are on the rise and it is evident cyber criminals:
1. Are becoming more sophisticated in their attacks
2. Have deep insight into the operation of businesses
3. Are aware of the types of online services individuals and businesses use every day and are able structure their attacks to exploit the use of these services
BCL is committed to providing a secure network, email hosting and internet service.
In order to enhance the security of the network, BCL is undertaking network security upgrades in stages from July 2018 and you will receive a communication from BCL when your floor will be affected. This project is title The Network Access Control (NAC) Project and will add an additional minor step to your login process making it more difficult for unauthorised access to the network.
What does this mean for me?
When you connect a device (computer or laptop) to the network using a LAN cable, a pop-up dialogue box will appear, prompting you to enter your login details in order to access the network.
