Network and Security Trends to Pay Attention to

2017 has been a year of many cyber-incidents worldwide. Ransomware, hacking, intelligence leaks and malicious emails have been in our headlines far more often than we would like. It may seem like they happen only to the global corporations but the truth is, these headlines are only part of the story.  The bigger story, or threat, is the growing number of cyber attacks against small businesses and individuals.  As we head into the last quarter of 2017, here are some of the top network and security threats that we can expect to see continue into 2018.


Ransomware is a type of malware that holds their victim's assets hostage until ransom money is paid to restore access. Almost all ransomware today is "crypto-ransomware" which blocks access to files through encryption.  Ransomware is on the rise and is expected to spread to new victims, new hardware, and new methods of extortion.

Malicious Emails

Emails are increasingly being used by hackers to gain entry into business networks. There are 4 types of malicious emails: Phishing, spear phishing, malware spreading and business email compromise (BEC) which specifically targets a business by sending them a carefully crafted email with the intention to mislead.

Security of Internet-Enabled Gadgets

With more and more of our devices going online and the emphasis on connectivity, we are seeing a number of security issues come up surrounding smart devices such as thermostats, DVRs, and IP cameras. Hackers are able to gain control over the device's behaviour using botnets and malware.

Are you a tech-savvy individual passionate about using the latest technologies to do good? Check out the following IT programs offered by Robertson College:

Our Edmonton Campus has Moved!


The past few weeks have been incredibly exciting for us as we opened the doors to our new campus in Edmonton, located at 10145 - 109 Street NW inside the Capital Centre!

With our new spacious campus, we have finally amalgamated our two separate campuses into one convenient location. 

Last week, our students saw the new space for the very first time. Excitement was in the air and we even celebrated with a hot dog lunch in our new surroundings.

Here are a few pictures from our hot dog lunch:

We are very proud of our new space, designed with our students in mind and we invite you to come down and experience it for yourself.  If you are in the Edmonton area, feel free to drop in anytime during the day or book a visit with one of our Student Admissions Advisors.
