Easter is Time for Internet Scams

Internet scams become more active during the Easter. They take advantage of the fact that usually people send seasonal greetings to our relatives, friends and colleagues. Are all of the messages coming by emails harmless? A few recommendations will help to protect against scams.“As the Easter is approaching, it is necessary not only to think about cheering the others but also about the security in the electronic media,” says Deividas Švėgžda, Product Manager with the Baltimax Project.According to D. Švėgžda, hackers use the holiday season for sending spam emails, inviting to view friends’ greetings or offerring Easter discounts on various purchases. Security experts advise to stay alert because the links divert to the hackers’s site where users are asked to give the credit card information or any other personal data.Users are advised to be cautious, when they receive emails with Easter pictures from uknown persons, and not to click on the attached files asking to downloa

Information Security Becomes Priority for Organizations

Annual growth of the cybersecurity incidents forces the companies to change their attitude towards the information security. In 2014, compared to the year 2013, the number of the security incident reports increased by 43 percent. Some organizations still approach the data security as the exclusive area of the IT departments’ competences. Can such position be effective in safeguarding the information?The Lithuanian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-LT) indicates in the 2014 overview that last year it investigated 36,136 incidents in response to the reports from the Lithuanian electronic communication providers, foreign CERT teams conducting the international investigations, and from the Lithuanian internet users.“The scale of the security incidents show that the organizations, in order to avoid them, have to take preventive actions and to allocate more resources,” says Deividas Švėgžda, Product Manager with the Baltimax Project.

Ways to Ensure Software Legality

Now CEOs of any organizations have tools which can help them to know the true situation associated with the software legality. The managers need this information because they are liable for the activities of the entire organization, including the software installation, use and control. The illegal use of the programs may impose administrative liability and even the criminal responsibility. This article gives the ideas how to ensure the adequate controls and to avoid penalties.Only an audit can help to identify if all of the software used by the organization is legal. Regular audits are performed at a certain frequency. Furthermore, it may take a lot of time in case of a large enterprise. Therefore, the CEO cannot be completely sure about the legality of all of the programs in the organization. The continuous monitoring of the software installed on the computers by the special programs, such as Axence, is a good alternative for the audits.“It is easy to identify the legal software be

Time to Say Farewell to Tapes

The information technology is probably the most dynamic sector; however, in certain cases, old methods, such as the server back up on tapes, are still in use. Despite application of this data storage approach, it is no longer the main way of the data safeguarding and retrieval.As experts note, the storage of the data backup of the desktop and laptop computers as well as mobile devices in the clouds is gaining popularity; however, few data centers put their server backups on tapes; pack and transport them for offsite storage. “IT professionals might be comfortable with this approach, but there is a more efficient and less costly way to back up the data center,” says Jaspreed Singh, CEO of Druva, a creator of the data protection solutions. This company has created a solution which simplifies the server data backup.“The consumers have long waited for convenient solutions, which would simplify the server data backup and retrieval.

Cloud Computing Facilitates Efficient Use of Corporate Funds

The cloud computing is a technology we meet almost on every step. It served as a basis for creation of a great variety of services for personal computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.During the several recent years, there has been a trend that large companies and small enterprises, having the goal to optimize their costs, are transferring their data from own data centers to the cloud storage.“The cloud computing is useful for companies in such a way that they no longer need to focus on and invest into installation and management of the data centers. Discontinuing use of own centers leads to reduction of companies’ costs associated with the data storage, software licenses and updates, etc. This way, they can put their efforts and money to development of their core businesses,” says Uosis Mečkauskas, Manager of the Baltimax Project.Companies that own data centers have to ensure timely backups of the data to protect them from loss.

How not to lose customers

Managers and employees often put their work assignments, meetings and other important information to their notebooks or create on their computers special files and continuously update them. Electronic calendars, which can be shared with other team members, are also used for these purposes. Such ways of the activity monitoring, though, seem effective, still are not efficient. People forget to put forward tasks not completed, and calendars, including electronic, do not show earlier events after the dates have changed. Some persons use email reminders; however, it is not the best way to manage the information flows either, because it is easy to get lost due to its abundance. Almost everyone can remember instances when they forgot to call their customers or were late to perform tasks because no one reminded of them.

Internet Security as Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility is often regarded as commitment of organizations to addressing the communities’ needs and environmental issues. Internet security usually falls out of the sight in this context. However, if we speak about the safer life for the community in a broader sense, organizations should think about e-crime prevention by taking actions to protect their own hardware and software and ultimately impeding illegal acts. Data breaches, attacks, malicious software, spyware, etc. are among threats faced by governmental authorities, businesses, financial and educational institutions. The cost of the data breaches for organizations is increasing. According to the global research made by Ponemon Institute, the U.S.-based research center dedicated to privacy, data protection and information security policy, in 2014 the average cost to a company was 3.5 million in US dollars and by 15 percent higher than last year.

Where to Find IT Specialist?

For several years, a discussion has been around about shortage of the IT specialists in Europe. According to human resources experts, the main reason for that lies with decreasing  number of IT engineering students. The shortage of IT specialists is an issue for many companies. Moreover, it is an increasingly pressing problem not only to find required specialists, but also to retain them. Non-IT companies could solve this understaffing issue by switching from own data centers to outsourcing IT services. “It is easier for companies to find a reliable IT service provider than an employee with necessary competences and experience,” says Uosis Mečkauskas, Manager of the Baltmax Project, representing BeAnywhere solution.

Personalized Customer Service in IT Infrastructure Management

Regular users are not interested in the set-up of the IT infrastructure. Usually we are interested in operation of our computers, printers, or network programs, when we need them.

Is Your Data Safe?

We encounter today’s digital technologies on every step. We use mobile phones not only for making calls, but also for communication in the social networks, shopping, solving work matters by email, planning trips and meetings. Computers are used for all this and for more. Our digital devices contain loads of various records: from music, films and photos to e-banking user names and passwords as well as top confidential commercial information. We usually tend to preserve it and copy it to various external storage devices – flash drives and SD cards, SSDs, servers or clouds. When a file becomes unnecessary, we delete it. Before selling or giving our computers or phones away, we format them or restore the manufacturer’s parameters. Having done so, we think that all of information stored in our device becomes inaccessible. “Unused and highly important data, which we do not want to share with anybody, remains in the old computer or phone.
