A big thank you to the organisers of a fantastic event held at the Marriott Hotel in Cheshunt which we attended, focusing on protecting your business with cyber security.

The challenges associated with cyber-crime can be overwhelming which is why the Hertfordshire Growth Hub, Hertfordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner and his Independent Business Advisory Group held a dynamic seminar about cyber security to help our staff gain a greater understanding of the steps we can take to protect our business and data. 80% of cyber security breaches can be prevented by putting security basics in place, and after attending this seminar, we feel confident in the steps we have already taken in keeping data secure.

We look forward to attending another event soon hosted by the Hertfordshire Growth Hub.

When it comes to measuring external grooves, most measuring tools will struggle to give you an accurate reading. However, thanks to the Moore and Wright 120 Series Caliper, measuring external grooves has never been easier. Measure up to 150mm (6") and with its two raised pins, it allows access into external grooves, circlip recess and over stepped work pieces. The jaws and slide are made from hardened stainless steel and has an easy to read LCD display which will convert to mm/inch.

With a resolution of 0.01mm (0.0005") and accuracy of +/-0.03mm (0.0016 "), you will be sure that whatever you’re measuring, it will be pin point accuracy every time.
