Practicality equals performance

The difference between a bright idea and a great solution is often practicality: Does a concept that works in theory translate into 'real life' performance?

A great example is our partner Origo's Unipass Mailock service, which has successfully transitioned from a problem of communication within the Financial Services sector, into a solution encompassing daily risk reduction and improved convenience for thousands of advisers, as well as providers.

Today, we rightly define performance as not just the ability to meet a particular need or solve a specific problem, but also in the context of sustainable business behaviour - How will a solution's adoption and use impact our environmental, social and governance (ESG) aims and obligations?

It is precisely a focus on sustainable performance that sits at the heart of the Mailock secure email solution. Whilst clearly security is paramount, we have also ensured that the system is easy to install and simple to use.

Mailock empowers all users; from corporate businesses to end consumers like you and I, to form and join secure communities; enhancing engagement and operational efficiency while significantly reducing costs and carbon footprints.

BBC Reports New Year Boom in Online Tax Scams

2021 has already seen a huge increase in fraudulent online activity relating to tax returns, as reported by BBC News online.

The February 24th article reports that - according to HMRC's own figures - phone scams tripled compared with December last year as criminals attempted to profit from the self-assessment filing deadline at the end of January, by flooding people with fake texts, emails and calls.

They posed as HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) officials and attempted to steal personal financial details. To read the full BBC online article, click here

Goonhilly Earth Station, the UK's globally recognised leader in deep space communications has recently formed a partnership with Beyond Encryption to deploy its Mailock secure email solution across its network.

Cornwall-based Goonhilly Earth Station uses a deep space antenna with associated network and mission operation centre facilities and is working on replicating these globally in collaboration with its global partners. It aims to become the world's first private global deep space communications network, supplementing the capacity offered by NASA and its European equivalent, ESA.

The partnership with Beyond Encryption reflects Goonhilly's commitment to data security and comprehensive communication security, as stated by Alex Tweed, IT Systems Manager, Goonhilly Earth Station, "In order to implement the best possible data protection practices for our own business and our global partners, it is vital we utilise the highest standard of encryption, and identity verification, to protect our

partners against intervention, interception and cybercrime. Beyond Encryption's Mailock met our standards and requirements, and we look forward to working closely with them in the future."

Paul Holland, Chief Executive, Beyond Encryption, is also looking forward to supporting Goonhilly's industry-leading activities: "Goonhilly provides world-beating connectivity, operational solutions and data services. Interestingly, Goonhilly's datacentre services, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) capabilities are particularly relevant in the Financial Services sector and for the companies we work with."

"With Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) issues becoming increasingly significant, we are also looking forward to understanding their Earth Observation (EO) work to help us, and the businesses we work with. For Mailock to be selected as their chosen digital security solution is a tremendous endorsement for the company."

Huw's News

As recently highlighted in the Mail on Sunday, Experian is being sued in a landmark High Court case that could lead to almost every adult in England and Wales sharing in an estimated £34 billion in damages.

Leading data specialist Experian, which holds information on circa 46 million individuals, is accused of mis-selling personal data and creating potentially inaccurate profiles that may then directly affect credit decisions.

According to the Mail on Sunday article first published on 27th February, lawyers acting for a representative claimant have filed a writ at the High Court in a case that threatens to cripple the credit company. The claim is for £750 in damages. It accuses Experian of collecting data on people from a raft of sources, which include online questionnaires and website-tracking cookies, and selling it on for commercial gain, without their consent.

The claim follows an Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) enforcement notice last October that found Experian was selling people’s data on to third parties, including political parties, without their consent, with a potential fine of £20 Million. Experian has launched an appeal.
