Time's Up-Do You Know Where Your Windows Server 2012 Upgrade Is?

Don’t Expose Your Organization to the Unnecessary Risks

by Jonathan Clark | 06.08.15

Windows Server 2003 has been a reliable workhorse for over a decade, a bastion of corporate computing available in multiple editions targeted toward particular sizes and types of business. But on July 14, Microsoft will stop releasing critical patches for it.

Risk Assessment

Don’t Short-Change Your Risk Assessment

Special Risk Circumstances

by Stephen Nardone | 10.21.14

While there are commonalities to most risk assessments, companies in regulated industries that store sensitive customer data must follow additional government-mandated protocols. The overall goal is to gain an understanding, from an end-to-end perspective, of what the current risk is to your environment. However, a full Security Assessment can be targeted against compliance-related areas, like PCI or HIPAA.
