The Cloud: A scary place sometimes

For some organizations moving resources into the ‘cloud’ is a way to improve scalability, mobility, availability without large capital investments in equipment and software. Although this sounds like a great scenario, is it possible you are paining a nice big red target on your back?

When the lights go out

Over the past week I have been dealing with a great number of calls related to power outages and equipment failures due to lightning strikes. For many businesses the rash of thunder storms and high winds has had no impact on revenue or productivity while others are left to calculate the losses while
their employees stand idle as equipment is replaced or repaired. So what can you do to avoid such a disaster in the future? Be prepared!

The power of IP

Business is in the process of really challenging the old conventions of employment. It used to be you were hired by a company, required to come into the office on a daily basis, complete your work and go home. For an increasing number of companies that is no longer a requirement. More and more firms are discovering the advantage to having a mobile workforce.

Spam is one of the largest problems facing organizations which use the email as a primary communications tool.

Security, security, security

As a society we have come a long way when it comes to understanding the importance of computer security. Most of us have the standard antivirus software installed and for the most part have figured out how to secure our wireless networks.

Weak passwords and policies

Passwords are often your first line of defence, and in many instances, the only defence against hackers gaining access to your information. Passwords are like the keys to your car. Without them you are going nowhere and in the wrong hands your car and its contents are likely on the way down the road to a local chop-shop.

Where is your data?

Disaster recovery is often the last thing a company thinks about or plans for and in reality it should be one of the first things.

What’s in a name anyway?

When deciding to put your business online the first and often most critical decision you will have to make is your domain name (sometimes called a URL). The wrong name can frustrate or confuse a user which at the end of the day may cost you a client.

Security made simple
