Trend Micro defends World Cup fans from cyber attacks

New online resource centre offers information on latest threats

Trend Micro has launched an initiative to help protect users from potential security threats during the FIFA World Cup that begins on June 12.

The security developer is working to help defend against potential cyber threats relating to the upcoming tournament.

It has created an online resource to help fans and attendees with tools and information they can use to protect against potential cyber attacks.

Trend Micro said its resource centre will provide information to the general public about threats detected by the company’s threat defence experts. It will include tips on what to avoid when receiving World Cup offers, purchasing merchandise, email threats and malware.

The resource centre also offers free software to protect computers and mobile devices from malware and other threats.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
