Cybercrime Insurance in the Sunshine Coast a Must for Hotel Market


As many white-hat hackers have demonstrated before, hacking today is surprisingly easy. All a person needs is a good computer and software to initiate attacks. In some cases, Lowenstein writes, the attack can be made simpler by social media. As businesses take off to Facebook and Twitter to promote their goods and services, defamatory hacking can be a reality.

Cybercrime insurance in the Sunshine Coast not only covers the cost of network security but also the aftereffects of an attack. No matter how advanced a business’ security system is, it’s still prone to failure. The insurance will mitigate the effect of profit loss brought about by various network attacks, allowing the business to operate amidst the damage.

Business Interruption Insurance (Crop Insurance) a Rain of Blessing Amidst a Dry Spell


This domino effect in the supply chain has long-term implications. It only takes a faulty chain link to sever the entire chain clean off; for a business hanging onto this chain, severance means a long fall. Something has to support the failed link until the situation is stabilised; something like business interruption insurance in the form of Crop Insurance.

Supply issues just so happen to be right up the alley of business interruption insurance. An insurance policy will cover net losses brought about by these supply issues, operating costs, and costs of provisional measures to counter these issues. Depending on the nature and gravity of the issue, insurance coverage may last for months or years. Crop Insurance is protecting the loss of revenue (partially or totally) from fire, spray drift and mainly hail. Other businesses may utilise business interruption cover in the event of damage to their premises and facilities in preparation for or during the crop season.

Video Games: An Unusual Source for Sunshine Coast Web Design Ideas

The following quote is from Erik Hinton, interactive news developer for the New York Times, during a 2013 interview with Mashable’s Denise Lu: “Game designers are lightyears ahead of most app and web makers in asking questions about what interactivity entails and how meaningful play happens.” It’s a clear indication of how web and game design share a common doctrine. The methods may differ, but graphic designer Anne Miles believes some rules of game design can be applied to Sunshine Coast web design. Does this mean a web designer has to have experience in game design or vice-versa? Perhaps not.
