Tips for Enhancing Mac Cloud Security

Backing up your data seems to be the most important thing taught to anyone in the IT field. In fact, it happens to be the number one thing my A+ exam preparation teacher told and reminded us, his students, of every class period: back up to keep from cracking up.  Though the A+ certification is an entry level certification for PCs, Apple has its own Backup solution: Backup Exec. Backup Exec 2010 R3 has been enhanced and now uses stronger protocols in order to ensure secure communication between remote agents and media servers, thereby reducing the possibility that restore or…


Picture Perfect Clouds

Cloud storage seems to be the hottest trend in storage today, and there are so many digital items that users love to store. This is not only confidential or private information – there are baby videos, photos that show the progression of a family, even your grandparents’ weddings and other photos that have survived the tests time and nature. How does one back these up, let alone an entire hard drive? With your photos and movies, there are several online options to choose from.

Cloud Storage and Its Potential Threats

There are many ways to back up your important and confidential information these days and the best way to accomplish this is called using the Cloud. Or as the introduction commercials back from the early 2000s had them, “to the Cloud”, care of our friends at Microsoft for their Windows 7 launch. It all seems quite futuristic, since this technology allows you to store digital information in a non-physical, but accessible by your workstation location. But, even something as futuristic as Cloud storage has its potential threats, and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) has labeled their top nine threats for…


HIPPA Variations

Earlier in 2013, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a Final Rule to modify the 1996 HIPAA legislation, which is now the beating heart of healthcare data portability, privacy and security. The reason behind the final rule and its new level of security is a basic reason. Through the years, healthcare has had some serious deficiencies and it’s still the prime target for identity theft, and its main problem of financial fraud, especially Medicare Fraud which whistles to the tune of $70 billion a year alone. The HIPAA’s final rule clarifies the financial and legal liabilities for…


Free – But is it Secure?

Cloud storage is a popular topic for many people, both commercial and private, and even financial institutions are looking towards solutions as a way to reduce costs while increasing the reliability of confidential and critical information. But, as with all great opportunities, there is risk involved. There are many services offering free storage space, but the question remains: are they secure from prying eyes, even their own?

The Growing Demand Of Lesser Known Professions

The Growing Demand Of Lesser Known Professions

The healthcare industry has been growing for a few years now, and it is expected to keep growing for the next decade. Unfortunately there are more people demanding healthcare now than there are professionals to fill that demand.

There are many professions in the healthcare world that some many not even think about; for example, a person who holds a degree in music could apply for a position as a music therapist.

Using Sound Engineering To Hack Your Brain Into Happiness

Music has the ability to evoke powerful emotions in people; it can trigger either intense happiness or deep sadness. Music also has the ability to change the way our brains think, and research has proven that studying music can increase the size of your grey matter. With the relatively recent ability to study the brain using computerized tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scientists can now “watch” the way different parts of the brain reacts to various stimuli presented to the subject. A special dye is injected into a person’s bloodstream, which will allow an increase in contrast so…
