Welcome to our February newsletter update.

Supporting Salford Red Devils

This year we have partnered with Salford Red Devils with two NCS IT banners pitch-side. These will be shown at all of the men’s First Team home matches at the AJ Bell Stadium in Salford. So if you’re attending (or even watching on TV) you might just catch a glimpse of your favourite IT company’s logo!

As part of our partnership with the club, we also get tickets to the home matches. If this is something you would be interested in attending with us as a guest, please let your Account Manager know.

We also have another aspect of our partnership with the Salford Reds which we will be announcing soon, keep your eyes peeled for our social media posts!

Email Threat Protection
Why Email Security is Important

Email has been a primary communication tool in the workplace for more than two decades. More than 333 billion emails are sent and received daily worldwide—and employees get an average of 120 emails a day.

This spells opportunity for cybercriminals who use business email compromise attacks, malware, phishing campaigns, and a host of other methods to steal valuable information from businesses.
Most cyberattacks —94 percent— begin with a malicious email. The consequences can be severe, leading to significant financial, data, and reputational losses.
