Editor’s note: March 2023

2023 is the year of GPT-3 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) judging by the amount of email we have received since the beginning of the year. Like any game-changing tool, this one can be used for good or for evil and already and we’ve already seen that hackers are using ChatGPT to write malware.

I foresee a deluge of cleverly written phishing or BEC (Business Email Compromise) emails landing in your inbox later this year as GPT-3 supercharges scammers and spammers and tests Google’s and Microsoft’s antispam filters to breaking point.

And with GPT-4 just round the corner, enterprise security – and business VPNs are a cornerstone of that ecosystem – is  more critical than ever.

The best business VPN services make it simple and easy for remote workers to connect safely and securely to a business IT network. A VPN (opens in new tab) does this by maintaining a secure internet connection between employees and their employer, which protects both business data as well as privacy. 

A VPN can be used on a desktop or mobile device, and with the correct login details can be used to access office networks, cloud services and other essential resources.
