BRISBANE 17 April 2018 - Today WARDY IT Solutions ( http://www.wardyit.com ) announced the Break Free Alliance. The Alliance is a source of information and support created by WARDY IT Solutions and Palisade Compliance ( https://apac.palisadecompliance.com ) for organisations wishing to transition away from an Oracle database environment – or ‘break free’ from Oracle.
The Break Free Alliance was formed by Palisade Compliance and WARDY IT Solutions to cover all aspects of making the move – including legal, financial and technical. This partnership provides one-stop support for organisations facing the decision to move, compared to other organisations that deal with only legal, only financial or only technical aspects of transitioning from one database environment to another.
The Break Free Alliance will be providing resources on their website ( https://breakfreefromoracle.com/ ) including the ‘Oracle to SQL Server Whitepaper: The Commercial, Contractual and Technical Considerations’ aimed at DBAs in organisations thinking about moving away from the Oracle environment.
The Break Free Alliance are currently offering a complementary contract review and migration workshop for those considering the move. This will help customers work out if a migration (complete or partial) is right for them and understand how to handle relationships with Oracle. The Break Free Alliance assists with licensing, how to save, migration planning, the migration itself and post migrations support.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?
Cybersecurity Insights - People
Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
