SmartSimple Celebrates Movember for Awareness of Men’s Health Issues

Posted by SmartSimple Software on Nov 15, 2022 11:03:27 AM

There’s a saying these days that we hear more and more. It’s a phrase that used to bring audible gasps when uttered… “I know someone that’s been touched by… “ These days, you can insert ‘prostate’ or ‘testicular cancer’ into that sentence just as easily as ‘mental health’ or ‘suicide’.    

Sadly, it’s a phrase that’s so frequently said that we’ve all seemingly become desensitized to it. The reality is, in many places around the world, women are outliving men, and the gap between a woman’s life expectancy vs. a man’s seems to be widening. 

That’s because a disturbing trend has emerged. Prostate and testicular cancer, along with mental health and suicide disproportionately affect young men. According to the Movember Foundation, testicular cancer is the most common cancer among young men, while men account for 69% of all suicides globally.

It’s estimated that 24 billion usernames and password combinations are being sold on the dark web. Compromised credentials remain one of the biggest security threats facing organizations today. When there are as many malicious cyber attacks as there are stars in the sky, no additional precaution is too much.

October News and Updates

Posted by SmartSimple Software on Nov 9, 2022 10:24:18 AM

It seems not long ago when we were all still basking in patio weather, enjoying the warmth over a few drinks. So it’s bittersweet for many of us to pull out our favorite cardigans and coziest crewnecks as colder months approach.

But as legendary Irish poet and playwright Oscar Wilde once lamented, “conversation about the weather is the last refuge of the unimaginative". To that, we couldn’t agree more. Thankfully, we have a lot more to talk about than the weather in this month’s newsletter.

October was noteworthy for many reasons. Earlier in the month, we hosted the SmartSimple Unite EMEA Conference, our first in-person event in nearly three years! We also recognized Cyber Security Awareness Month, a time devoted to highlighting the importance of robust cybersecurity best practices.

As we look towards a busy November, there are several conferences we’ll be attending. Read on for the latest on all of these activities!
