- 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!

Momentum is growing for a new technological status quo, as companies see the benefits of device neutral data accessibility.
