Networking In More Than One Way

Today’s Top Threat
Currently there is not much known about the Volgmer torjan virus, what we do now is that it has a relatively low infection rate lately, and it will be performing malicious activities on an infected computer. With not much being known, it’s important to keep an eye on things if you have this virus.

Risks from Within: Learning from the Amtrak Data Breach
“A recent report published by Amtrak’s Office of the Inspector General revealed that an employee of the passenger rail company had been selling passenger data for two decades. The buyer of this data was none other than the Drug Enforcement Agency, which paid the employee $854,460 over the period. Iowa’s senior senator, Check Grassley, sent a letter to the DEA raising serious concerns over the incident.”

Always Be Networking
I know it sounds cliché and a little hokey, but networking with other IT companies and people is so super important. Recently we ran into an issue where we needed assistance with a high end Cisco item that none of the techs here could work on, so we are left with a few options, reach into our contact list or Google to find someone who can help. Let me just tell you that Googling a cisco certified tech is not an easy task, you will mostly find job postings and the CCNA test. Fortunately through years of good contacts, friends, and working well with others our company had a few people we could turn to, to get the work done.

If you need help finding a proper technician, call us!
