Equifax and Yahoo! testify in front of the Senate

Earlier this month, two former CEO’s had to testify in front of Congress their accounts of events surrounding two of the largest data breaches in history. Marissa Mayer, former CEO of Yahoo!, and Richard Smith, former CEO of Equifax, sat in front of the US Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation and detailed to the best of their ability the nature of these breaches that occurred under their watch; what caused them, who is responsible for them, and how they will be prevented in the future. The Senate committee also doesn’t fail to publicly shame these executives for endangering their customer’s sensitive information for decades to come, while themselves exiting their respective companies with millions of dollars in compensations and bonuses. We’ve summarized the hearing with a few main points you need to know:

In our November issue, we look at Internet-Protocol (IP) based video systems.  The convergence of video over the same networks as PCs means companies no longer have to string coax cable for video as the video signal can now piggy-back on the same network as computers.  Companies are installing video for security, safety and as a crime deterrent, and SIM2K can specify, install, configure and support these video systems.  We also take a look at two of the popular note-taking programs, Microsoft's OneNote and Evernote, and compare the pros and cons of both.  Users of Google Chrome browsers will see some improvements with the new update that also fixes lots of security issues.  Microsoft is rolling out a new authorization policy for Windows 10 Enterprise which may foreshadow where the company will go with all Windows licensing in the future. And, we re-cap Cybersecurity Month with a look at the "Bad Rabbit" ransomware released at the end of October and cover our tips for securing your network from malware.
