ESET Ireland is always trying to help Irish computer users know the current dangers out there, by exposing online scams, malware threats and other forms of cybercrime. And Irish radio stations have helped us greatly by talking to us about this.
At ESET Ireland we have been gathering info and writing cybercrime warnings for years now. The printed and online media often pick up our stories and offer them to their readership, which has already helped save a lot of people from being scammed online. But reading an informative article is one thing, while listening to radio hosts discuss latest threats with experts is another. Irish radio stations across the country have shown great interest in what we have to say and have so far offered us the chance to warn their listeners of various online dangers and offer advice on staying safe.
In the past couple of years we’ve talked to Beat 102 103, Clare FM, Red FM 104 106, CRC Castlebar, Flirt FM Galway, Galway Bay FM, Highland Radio Donegal, Inishowen Community Radio, KCLR 96 FM, Midwest Radio, Northern Sound Radio, Ocean FM, Phantom radio Dublin, Phoenix FM, Radio Kerry, Radio Nova, Sunshine 106.8 FM, Tipp FM, Today FM, Wired FM Limerick and WLR FM Waterford. There are even a few radio stations, that invite us on air so regularly, ESET Ireland must already be a household name among their listeners; CRY 104FM Youghal, Connemara Community Radio, KFM Kildare and Near FM Dublin. We would like to use this opportunity to thank all these radio stations for helping us keep Irish computer users informed and safer online. Every info they get can help them prevent getting scammed or their computer infected, therefore saving them a lot of potential trouble and financial loss.
We’ve discussed topics such as spam as Gaeilge, children and internet safety, scams targeting the unemployed, SMS text phishing, ransomware, fake Revenue emails, banking phishing emails, hacker attacks, and many other current online threats.
