FAST and V.i. Labs join forces to educate market on unpaid software license usage

Campaign highlights move away from traditional beliefs about software piracy as industry now focuses on the legally minded, accidental license infringement

The Federation Against Software Theft (FAST) and long-term industry member V.i. Labs, have launched a campaign aimed at educating software providers about individuals and businesses who unintentionally use software that is not licensed correctly. The campaign dispels long held beliefs that have resonated within the industry for decades – that all pirates are individuals who deliberately copy and use software with no regard to intellectual property. Not so.

Working together, FAST and V.i. Labs aim to raise awareness of the realities of unpaid licenses and accidental, but material, infringement. Legally inclined businesses and end users who are unaware that they are using unlicensed software represent a significant business opportunity for software providers.

Neustar's Third DDoS Survey Finds Attacks Unrelenting in 2015

Neustar logo

STERLING, Va. -- April 26, 2016; Neustar, Inc., a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information services, today released the findings from its third global DDoS Attacks and Protection Report titled The Threatscape Widens: DDoS Aggression and the Evolution of IoT Risks. The April 2016 report follows a survey of over 1,000 IT professionals across six continents, and reveals that few organizations globally are being spared DDoS attacks. With the bombardment fairly constant throughout 2015, it is no longer a matter of if or when attacks might happen, but how often and how long the attack will last. Faced with this ongoing onslaught, the report demonstrates that increasingly DDoS-defense savvy organizations are now arming themselves accordingly.

The research results show that although revenue loss caused by a DDoS related outage is usually the main concern, 57% of all breaches involved some sort of theft including intellectual property and customer data as well as financial information. More troubling, following the initial breach, 45% of organizations reported the installation of a virus or malware - a sign that attackers are interested in causing ongoing harm.

The research highlights that although DDoS attack tactics continue to evolve from single large attacks intended to take a website offline to the multi-vector attacks we are seeing today, organizations are fighting back. The good news is 76% of companies are investing more in DDoS protection than in 2014 and 47% of the attacked organizations are participating in security consortiums to share information on threats and counter measures.

Infographic: What Should Your "About Me" Page Include?

Crafting a perfect about me page

You probably haven’t thought about your About Me page in years. At least, if you’re anything like me.

But you’re doing this at your own peril. Statistically speaking, your About Me page is one of the top 10 most visited pages on your site.

That’s why I want to share with you the tips to make yours become a productive power page.

Your “About Me” page of your website should serve several purposes. For starters, it should introduce you to potential new readers. It should show off a bit of your personality and writing style, explain why you are someone who knows what you’re talking about, and simultaneously entertain and educate your readers. Sounds like a big task, right? Because it is.

Writing a solid About page isn’t easy, especially when you consider the dozens of other jobs that any blog maintainer already has on a given day.

But putting in a little bit of effort and making sure to include a few things will take your About page from a zero to a hero in no time.
