Sample text

The key here is that the incentives for responding may need to be carefully considered along with a safe harbor for participants should the solutions run counter to the current party line. Once you start promoting openness in an organization, be careful that the openness doesn’t have to be restrained. A case in point is one organization which opened up a blog for customers. e. reviewed by an administrator before they appeared in public, the site had to be taken down because of the negative publicity generated.

Another issue to consider is depth on the bench. If your organization has one really good server lead person, what happens if that one leaves or gets sick? Maybe you hire a second server person as a backup.  So you give one of them 75% servers and 25% help desk support. Small to medium­sized businesses can’t keep up with this model so they frequently augment staff with contractor support. No issue here except you have just backed into a shared service model.  They can provide surge support but may not be available full time.

Bigger pipes are better An additional wrinkle in today’s more aggressive security operating environment is that by positioning your e­mail and web hosting in the Cloud, it may be more secure due to the larger bandwidths available by sitting directly on top of a fiber connection to the Internet. Distributed denial­of­service (DDoS) attacks use corrupted machines called zombies or bots to attack other machines. The zombies generally are programmed to work together in what is called a botnet. When zombies in a botnet are ordered to attack one server or network, they can have the devastating effect of flooding that network with so much false traffic that the system stops performing and legitimate users are prevented or denied service.
