This breach had an extreme impact on not just Code Spaces customers, but on the future of Code Spaces itself. Not only did a data breach occur, but data (and all associated backups) were deleted and not able to be restored. This is an example of a worst-case scenario, and while it may not happen often, when it does it has dire consequences.
As electronic devices and their associated digital storage are more commonplace than ever before, it is easy to see how their involvement in crime or other undesired events must be considered during any investigation. For example, when considering bank fraud, it would literally be impossible to accomplish without leaving some digital traces. For that reason, it is imperative that investigators have the appropriate tools, methods, and knowledge to gather digital evidence, present digital evidence in court, and prove that the evidence is authentic.
Many of you cretins, Oh I mean millennials, that suck at the tit of the almighty Apple will no doubt line up and wait for your new Apple credit card (in partnership with Goldman Sachs). It’s a different kind of card (so Apple would leave you to believe) and its even made of TITANIUM.
Suppose life were viewed as a game and let’s think about that for a moment. We’re all involuntarily thrusted into existence with complex rules we don’t fully understand and predictable laws running the show. Just like a game, there are winners and losers. Life is basically the weirdest MMORPG we’ll ever play.
An Information Technology audit is only as good as those completing it, so the IT audit team is a critical piece to ensuring that the expected return on investment is provided by the processes being audited, as well as the audit itself.
How long did you wait in line at your favorite tech store to buy that new smart phone you just had to have? Perhaps you waited for a few days and ordered it online because actually going to a store would take you away from your latest tech addiction and you would have to leave your comfy house.
After decades of use in a variety of governmental and commercial environments, face recognition technology recently found its way into mainstream consumer devices. From Apple’s Face ID to Microsoft’s Windows Hello, face recognition technology provides a unique method of authentication that is difficult to replicate. While the technology has reached a level of maturity for general use, some argue that the technology is far from being universally accessible.
The HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB Gaming Mouse is a worthy addition to your stack of gaming peripherals. It delivers in three key areas near and dear to the hearts of PC gamers: comfort, performance, and of course, RGB! Read on for my informal thoughts on the mouse from a real life perspective; I’m not a hardware engineer, professional gamer, or UX expert, but I can tell you if this beautiful piece of gear is worth your (or your parent’s) hard earned cash!
In any organization or relationship between individuals there are behaviors that are unwanted or undesirable to oneself or others. For example, in a business where productivity is limited due to established processes not being accurately followed, or on a project team where functional resources are not reporting accurate task completion dates, one party would stand to benefit from the elimination of the other’s detrimental behavior. Human beings, by nature, engage in the changing of others’ behavior.
One such example of a company encountering the consequences of a large-scale data breach is that of Sony in 2011. In April of 2011, hackers obtained personal information, including credit card numbers and bank routing information from over 100 million Playstation Network (PSN) users (Laudon & Laudon, 2016). The breach had far-reaching negative outcomes, some of which that did not appear until years later.

Whatever your stance is on the President of the United States, you gotta give him credit for trying to help make the future of gaming shine bright. He recently tweeted that he wants to have 5G technology and even 6G technology… but what does that mean for those of us who just want to play Diablo while on the train in a tunnel?
In today’s economy, a company’s capacity to behave ethically and operate in a socially responsible manner is critical to its long-term success. No longer is it sufficient to merely remain profitable; with the advent of the internet and the associated improvement to communication, companies are often also measured on their overall social impact. For this reason, it is imperative that businesses, and their IT departments in particular, understand the importance of ethics in the workplace.

So you think millennial’s just don’t get it? Sure, I was not able to unwrap a brand new NES on Christmas day while wearing my Transformers pajamas. However, you know what? You were spoon fed games at an early age. Back in your day, all that was required was a console and a cartridge.
When I heard that Cronotek24 was looking for guest bloggers, I first thought to myself: “What do I know about computers?
