Internet of Things security primer

The Internet of Things (IoT) provides convenience, comfort, and cost savings through a vast and growing collection of connected devices ranging from HVAC systems and printers to fitness trackers, medical devices, and automobiles. And not surprisingly, those benefits are attracting the attention of businesses big and small. “The alluring promise of an improved bottom line will encourage businesses to focus on IoT,” predicts HP Chief Technology Officer, Shane Wall. “It can lower operating costs, increase productivity, and help businesses expand into new markets or offer new products.” While it is true that IoT devices can help businesses drive improvements in areas such as operations, staff performance, and the customer experience, a serious issue bubbles below all of that promise: security.   Source : http://www8.hp.com/us/en/TechnologyAtWork/internet-of-things-security-primer.html?flexfield10=031705

6 stupid office rules that should be banned

Rules in the workplace. Without them we’d have anarchy. Or would we? According to an article by Dr Travis Bradbury in the Huffington Post most companies fall into the trap of instigating morale sapping rules for every employee based upon the inconsiderate actions of a small minority of transgressors. Hardly seems fair does it? Anyway, in this article, Dr B has outlined nine dumb directives and I have featured my top six… 1. Banning use of social platforms – now I think we would all accept the need to restrict access to some of the more (shall we say) ‘unsavoury’ sites available on the internet but why do some companies insist upon stopping access to the likes of LinkedIn, Facebook and Snap? The commonly held belief is that social media stifles efficiency but there is a counter-argument that these platforms are incredibly useful tools in the work environment – for example scoping someones profile whilst checking them out …

Let’s review nine mistakes that can cause problems with any network environment when DNS server is not configured correctly. 1.

Free speed boost your PC

Why does a window slow down with age? There are many reasons, not least of which is that over time it has to cope with the demands of more and more installed programs, each new program you install take up space on the hard disk, user memory and may use space to create files and documents. Some programs such as antivirus tools start when windows lads and each of these uses a share of the PC’s available memory, hard disk space and processor resources. They can also make windows take forever to start by jostling for position and trying to load while windows itself is trying to get its house in order.
