Network Abuse:

Don’t Push Your ‘Luck’

Look around your office. Isn’t it great to see your team hard at work on their computers? Yet if we take a closer look, let’s see what’s really happening…Joe, your new sales rep, is poring over last weekend’s game stats…

Amy in marketing is looking for a new job, surfing your competitors’ websites,
chatting with their HR people...

Wes, over in customer support, just bogged down your entire network by downloading a video file of Metallica in

Guy, your new hire in shipping, is on, viewing questionable photos…

Bob in accounting is browsing stock-investing sites, in search of a hot tip…

Okay, so maybe it’s not that bad at your company. But this type of behavior will
happen to some


degree if you don’t proactively prevent it. The real problem is, unfiltered content often links to malware and other threats. Ignore it and you risk productivity losses, legal liabilities, extortion, blackmail and fraud. And not only that, the resulting data loss and corruption can cost your company big-time.

Cyber threats stemming from unfiltered content aren’t something you can count on your lucky leprechaun or four-leaf clover to protect you from.

In today’s mobile environment, content filtering has become a greater challenge than ever before. Your company may already be doing some filtering at the network level.

However, when was the last time you checked the number of mobile devices linked to your network? As your workforce goes mobile, your network is exposed to a rapidly expanding.

“attack surface.” With BYOD(bring your own device) now the norm, the old rules of content filtering just don’t cut it anymore.Are You Making Any Of These Mistakes? Old content  filtering models presume your network has a safe “firewall.” But now, with BYOD, you need a different way to protect your data. And that’s where endpoint security comes into play. Endpoint filtering keeps devices on your network safe from infection, no matter where they hook into the Internet.

But make ANY of the following mistakes with endpoint security and your network could be a sitting duck:

1. Missing even ONE end point. This applies to tablets and smart phones as well as home-based machines that VPN into your network.

2. Skimping on security policies, protocols and training. Believing that



tech tools alone will keep your network secure is a recipe for breaches. In fact, no technology can keep a network safe if users cut corners.

3.Leaving endpoint filtering out of your overall security plan. Ad hoc security invites disaster. An improperly designed system exposes holes that hackers love to find.  So, What Exactly Should You Filter?

Forrester Research states that companies whose users access the cloud should:
● Detect and intercept unusual or fraudulent activities related to data in
the cloud.
● Detect, neutralize and eliminate malware in cloud platforms.
● Detect and monitor unsanctioned cloud applications and platforms usage.
● Protect against leaks of confidential information.



● Encrypt structured and unstructured data in cloud platforms.
● Investigate suspicious users and incidents. Between BYOD and ever more complex cyber threats, you simply can’t afford to run around putting out fires. You absolutely MUST proactively defend your network in depth with endpoint content filtering.

What To NEVER Do When Deciding


We all have to make decisions every day. Some decisions we make require little thought and the consequences will not be earth-shattering or career-changing. But there are other decisions we have to make that can have an enormous impact on our lives.A while back, I had to make a very big decision. I sought out counsel from people I respect and I measured all the pros and cons. I tried to consider all the “What ifs” and I assessed the consequences of doing it or not doing it. I received advice that ranged from “You should absolutely take the offer, no questions asked” to “No way take the offer, it’s not in your favor.” I’d been working toward this goal for several years, and when the offer came in writing... I turned it down. So, what pushed me to say “NO” to the offer? What really helped me decide were two things. The first thing was there was a huge “What if” question that had a very bad result, if all didn’t go well. The second thing was a statement they made: “This is our standard agreement that is non-negotiable.” Everything in business is negotiable, and they just told me it isn’t. That one statement made me start reevaluating everything... and
to finally make a decision to say “NO.”I started thinking that once we began doing business together, what else was going to be “non-negotiable”?



That one statement triggered me to start considering alternatives, options, other possibilities
and a new direction I could pursue if I said “NO” to their offer. I felt reenergized, stimulated, excited about the other options, and, even more surprising to myself…I was feeling no remorse about saying “NO.”Who is to say I made the right or wrong decision? Some people might say, “Only time will tell,” but I still have a great deal to do with... the story that will be told. In all my years in business, I have learned two very important things about making decisions.Ask yourself if you can live with the consequences if it fails…because if you can’t live with it, don’t do it. NEVER doubt your decision, NEVER look back, NEVER SECOND-GUESS... because if you do, those actions will help to sabotage your decision. My job now is to make my new direction the right direction, the right choice, the right decision. You should never make a decision because it is the easiest thing to do, nor should you make it based on convenience, and, most importantly, never “second-guess” the decision you made. Former President Harry S. Truman once stated: “Once a decision was made, I didn’t worry about it afterward.” I would recommend we all follow his advice; I know I do.

Uber has added a new destination: people. Let’s say you just flew into Phoenix and you want to meet a friend there for drinks before heading to your hotel. It used to be that you’d ask them, “Where are you?... Where’s that again?” then try to quickly type in the address before you forgot any of the details, hoping you didn’t misspell anything. With Uber’s new “People” feature, instead of typing in your destination, you simply enter the person’s name, skipping all the back and forth.

Uber then locks in their destination and directs the driver to take you there. It also sends your ETA to the person you’re going to see. Just sync your contacts with Uber before your next trip, and enjoy the ride.

Introducing the mercenary software that powered Trump and Brexit.

NationBuilder was built for any person or organization with a supporter or donor base who cares about what they’re doing. It helps activists cast their influence into the wider world via e-mail, social media and



campaign website updates. Its goal is to convert interest into tangible support such as voting intent, monetary donations or volunteered time. Yet NationBuilder isn’t the only
platform used by politicos to carry out their vision. Nor is it just for political or advocacy groups; in one case a woman used it to help raise money for her fiancé’s fight against cancer. What NationBuilder and other similar programs do is help people make a difference - no matter what their beliefs., 12.21.16
