  • Securing your systems for long-term hybrid work

    Mark B. Cooper Business Management, Services & Risk Management

    When widespread shutdowns forced an overnight shift to remote work, financial services companies made rapid-fire adjustments to their tech stacks to keep teams up and running.

  • Infographic: How to protect your intellectual property

    Mike Floeck Business Management, Services & Risk Management

    The world is increasingly interconnected and ideas are accessible at the blink of an eye, which also means your ideas are more vulnerable to theft than ever before.

    Heinan Landa Business Management, Services & Risk Management

    We’re nearly there. In just a few months, almost all organizations will allow their employees to return to their offices after over a year of working from home.

This has been a positive change in many ways, with the majority of employees preferring remote work and the majority of employers saying they plan to continue remote work indefinitely. However, 49% of workers went remote for the first time and only 20% received any tips on cybersecurity from their employers.

  • 4 myths of front sight focus

    Mike Ox Law Enforcement, Defense & Security

    There are a ton of myths floating around about using a front sight focus on a self-defense pistol. One is that you must always use a front sight focus. I agree with this for bullseye shooting, 4H shooting, hunting non-dangerous game, and other specific situations.

    In recent years, we have seen a tremendous shift in the importance of safety, not just inside commercial spaces but outside as well. With the idea of security on everyone's mind, more and more facilities, including schools, retailers, and private businesses are looking to do their part in preventing ram-raiding, vehicle intrusions, and pedestrian incidents.
