Our most recent blog post talked about Cyber Security and how to protect your business from a breach, but, did you know you can land yourself in hot water just by using social media?

In recent news, it was announced that hackers allied with the Russian government developed a cyber weapon, dubbed CrashOverride, that can disrupt power grids remotely for days at a time in what is the culmination of over a decade of theory and attack scenarios[1].

Spring is underway, even if the current forecast defies that notion. Disagreeable weather can be unpleasant at best and disastrous at worst, but there’s one particular forecast that can actually help you regain control.
