Dispersive Remembers Those Who Proudly Served Our Country
By: Delia J. Smith
Millions of men and women have risked (and continue to risk) their lives serving our country on foreign battlefields. Yet some of their most difficult struggles they face are right here at home.
PTSD. Domestic violence. The systemic failure of our VA facilities. Homelessness. Unemployment.
Some of these situations are slowly improving. However, we as a nation still do not treat our military personnel with the care and respect they deserve.
Let’s change that.
Take a veteran (and his family, if possible) to a movie, ballgame or concert. When you see a soldier eating at a restaurant, pick up the tab. Volunteer at a VA hospital. Donate money, clothing or other items to veterans’ groups. Drive a veteran to a doctor’s appointment.
Or simply help a veteran find a job. Dispersive stays in contact with outplacement offices at military bases here in Georgia. We welcome applications from veterans and military spouses via our Careers page. No doubt your company could do the same with bases in your state.
This Veterans Day, let’s start saying “thank you” by our actions, not just our words. In whatever way possible, let’s proudly serve those who proudly served our country.
Critical Infrastructure On Edge: Colonial Pipeline Is Only the Latest Example of the Massive Risks Associated with Attacks
This past week Colonial Pipeline company, which operates a pipeline that carries gasoline, diesel fuel, and natural gas along a 5,500-mile path from Texas to New Jersey, was forced to take itself offline after being attacked by a criminal cyber gang. The pipeline, which carries 2.5 million barrels a day, nearly 50% of the East Coast supply of diesel, gasoline, and jet fuel, is still working to restore service and gain access to their systems after the malicious cyberattack, while its four mainlines remain offline.
Financial Services Companies Struggle With The Work from Home Digital Perimeter With Serious Cyber Attacks on the Rise
When pandemic lockdowns turned many jobs into work-from-home almost overnight, some industries experienced relatively seamless transitions; however, the banking industry was not one of them. These institutions were forced to pivot from traditional office environments, but the switch to remote working came with an abundance of challenges, the most serious being cybersecurity.
With physical retail re-opening, large retailers with hundreds or thousands of locations are rethinking their security strategies, especially when it comes to Point-of-Sale (POS) systems.
Retailers need reliable, resilient networks, as downtime leads to slow checkout lines and unhappy customers.
