Internet Security Threat Report 2014

And we thought we were PR-friendly. Clearly we have some lessons to learn from Silicon's Graham Hayday, author of this astonishing letter. Dear PR execs, Just a quick note to say a big 'thank you' for all your support over the last 12 months or so. Silicon.com will be a year old on July 6, and things are going rather well. We couldn't have done it without your assistance in sourcing top quality interview guests and digging out spokespeople for stories. As a token of our appreciation, a new monthly column will be appearing on the site, a column which aims to reveal the machinations of the PR industry. It should be of interest to end users too. And it should be funny (that's the plan anyway). If you missed the first instalment,published last Wednesday, it's not too late: just log on to www.silicon.com, scroll down to the 'comment' section and read the thoughts of our very own 'IT girl', Tiggy Familiar. She's real. Honest guv. Thanks again on behalf of the whole team, Graham Graham Hayday Editor, Silicon Report Direct line: 0171 761 8209 Fax: 0171 761 8008 e-mail: ghayday@nmtv.net web: http://www.silicon.com Silicon.com - the only place where IT makes sense
