Social Media: Are you Linked
by Brian Dwyer

Here are some simple tips you can employ to help boost your LinkedIn profile’s visibility. If you missed the first part of this series, you can read it here.

  • Customize your URL. A personalized URL is simpler, making it easier for others to remember, and optimizes your search engine rankings as well.
  • Add a picture. Adding a picture to your profile helps others identify you. Just make sure that your picture is business-appropriate and not too large.
  • Capitalize on your email signature. Consider updating your email signature to include a link to your LinkedIn account. This can help generate profile views, connections, and recommendations!
  • Reach out. Don’t be afraid to draw on colleagues. Make connections, offer recommendations (and request your own), and contribute productively to discussions in groups.

These are a few very quick and easy tips that can help increase your returns on your LinkedIn profile. Whether you’re seeking new sales opportunities, networking with others, or looking to get hired at a new job, improving your LinkedIn’s potential can facilitate your success.

Security in the School System
As technology advances, so too must the protection.
by Tom Hastings

Technology security must focus on the unique difficulties and needs of the K-12 education environment when targeting solutions. The increased connectivity that comes with technology also puts schools at risk for viruses and malware, data loss/corruption, and system misuse (like illegal file sharing). These issues mean that schools can be exposed to federal law and regulation violations, loss of sensitive or restricted information, and civil issue liabilities.

A comprehensive security solution must include conventional safeguards like intrusion prevention, but should also protect against Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. It also needs to handle the fluidity of the modern network perimeter. Laptops, remote and wireless access, email, web-connections, and G3 smart phones that utilize IP all contribute to a constantly changing and variable environment. So take the proactive approach-make sure your security is up to date and meeting your needs before problems arise!

Cloud Computing; Mobility as Efficiency in 2010

Market experts predict that 2010 will be “the year of the cloud;” but why should you and your company make the jump to the cloud?

The cloud is not a new concept; as a metaphor for the internet, it’s been around for a while. But new uses and applications in the cloud are gaining traction in the IT sector and beyond.

Out of Date, Out of Budget
Staying current can cut costs.

Many of us believe that we can’t afford to invest in new technology right now.  However, recent studies show that the cost of maintaining old technology could be more expensive than we imagine. 

Outdated technology has a much higher susceptibility to viruses, incurs higher electricity costs, and enjoys less performance power.  And this doesn’t even take into account the decreased productivity and downtime that unreliable technology brings!

Memory is often limited too, as is running speed; even a memory or RAM upgrade can only take an old machine so far.  Instead, consider investing that money in a technology update.
