This is more of a cry for help than a blog post. As Apple computers become more and more widespread, is it still safe to take the line that viruses and malware are a PC problem, or is it time to ramp up the defences on my Mac?
I am aware that Norton and all the other anti-virus software providers sell Mac versions of their software, but in the past Mac users seem to have taken the view that they just weren't necessary due to the relative lack of anything nasty circulated the Mac OS world. I can't make out if that's still true or not - does anyone have a definitive answer or opinion on the matter?
About Nigel Harris
I'm a partner with Burton Sweet, chartered accountants & business advisers, and run the Shepton Mallet office down in beautiful Somerset. Despite the name, Shepton Mallet is actually the home of Glastonbury Festival! I trained in audit and corporate tax with Grant Thornton and came to my current position in 1991 via small local practices and a stint with a training consortium.
I have the distinction of being one of the original members of the AccountingWEB editorial team, having been a freelance writer here for a year or so before John Stockdyk joined!
