Spare a thought for the IT heroes who are working away right now so that you can stay online over Christmas.
Sure, it’s their job – they knew that the holiday season was coming and that someone would need to be on duty, just to make sure that you would be able to post that cool new cat video you made on Christmas Day.
And, sure, it’s their job all year round – so they should be used to it by now.
But that’s no reason not to say a big thank you!
So, we wrote a song for all the heroes in IT, and we invited the world’s 25 most famous singers to perform it.
Here’s what happened:
(Can’t see the video directly above this line? Watch on YouTube instead.)
PS. For everyone who isn’t getting a holiday at New Year, but who will be on duty in front of a keyboard and a screen, we’ve got something coming up for you: a #sophospuzzle crossword. That’s right, you can sit right at your desk, looking busy and, if the truth be told, actually being busy! Better still, you’ll actually be learning something about computer security at the same time. (That’s the excuse to give if you need it.) So, watch this space for details. OK, not this place. Not literally. But watch this website, or keep your eye on the hashtag #sophospuzzle on Twitter, to find out when the puzzle starts. (We’ll be sending a Dance like Nobody’s Watching T-shirt to the fastest solver, so the sooner you start solving, the brighter your chances.)

Great fun, I love it!
LOL – very nicely done !
And thanks to the Sophos team for bringing us relevant stories from the realms of security all year long. Stay safe in 2018 !
Thanks! It’s been our pleasure and we plan to keep it up in 2018…
Must have been done by the modern “Flying Circus”!
Can I get a T-Shirt for editing the grammar in the story??? #ActuallyBeWorking
I’m a frayed knot.
That is actually a far better-written song than some of the rubbish I listen to on the radio. Loved the look-alikes, too.
To all of the tireless, hard-working folks at Sophos, the Sophos community of contributors, bloggers, and the sometimes hilarious commenters for brightening up my year! Here’s to 2018 being a success for all!
Thanks! I’ll pass your thanks onto the IT guys. (I’m in the office right now – basking in glorious winter sunshine, but don’t tell anyone – and the IT guys are all there, on the wrong side of the office for afternoon sun, basking instead in hard work. I’ll pass on your regards.)
They said, “Thanks a lot, have a good one.”
