Maintain business domain name intact

There is one thing that organizations must do. They have to register their own domain name, make it final, and afterwards be certain that they are managing it on their own. Digital reputation is increasingly becoming one of, if not there already, the criteria to assess how sound a business fundamental is. Really? Imagine if you caused, or a business keep, changing its own domain name. It is more likely that customers will have a hard time finding what they want to know about how to do business with you. There is much more than just learning the how regardless if a strictly or shabbily regulated business and industry is taken into account. And if the domain name has to be changed, don't totally abandon it. Make a redirect to the new domain name you intend to use and keep it that way for years to come. Until such time that every customer has learned about it already, and that the internet including search engines has been pointing and crawling to the new one directly and automaticall

We measure IT and our work

With so many areas to measure in IT we cannot emphasize enough how important it is do so even when no one seem to be interested about it. Even in program and project management which is most likely where measurement is a heavy part of the whole exercise, it is only to make sure time, materials and budget are all in the same place for a very specific purpose, and not entirely the enterprise. The measurement ends when the project ends.

If only program and project management mechanisms are always applied every time an IT or any area in it is being dealt with. May be there will not be any problem with measurement and stakeholders need not to worry about surprises. Remember project management, like other practices within IT, is not a panacea. If we are lax and miss something, project fails and so resources burns.

Seven years ago, we articulated about why measuring IT was a problem and it still is true up to this time. In fact, IT problems without much departure from the old ones seem to keep bugging out and they are ignored completely as if they never passed the wide optic. But then the eye might be simply being dependent on an available knowledge.

We said before, though there have been proven measurement methodologies to effectively govern the whole organization, measuring IT correctly may have been, as evidence suggests, subtle and an improperly conceived prospect as part of the overall facets of business. The measure up IT, avaialble at Social Science Research Network, which update now long overdue had explored such opportunity and found out based on the results of study that formal and proven methodologies and even an ad-hoc one can be used to effectively measure the business value of IT. However, a particular issue have also been discovered that concerned stakeholders may not be aware of such effort if key executives could not properly communicate nor senior managers could not execute correctly the objectives and priorities of the business where IT can be properly fitted in. 

Either an IT is just beginning or it already reaches where allocated money is almost near to its exhaustion there is no better way to do now than ask and be assured if projects are getting there as they were planned or not. In IT we need a recurrent work to reduce risks which can consume business results.

Philippine telcos blocking entire SMS text with internet addresses in it

If you are sending SMS texts to your friends, family or colleagues and they contain internet or web address including IP and email addresses, and even a period or dot separating, regardless of, your words and numbers, they are automatically blocked and not going to be received by your waiting recipient. Cooler heads must prevail here especially if an important message is urgently being expected. IP version 6 address is fine. However, an IPv4 including localhost address (given automatically to every computers and network interfaces as their own alone designed for troubleshooting purposes), and your money in the billion figure using dot as separators would be blocked.  If you send "local.business, naman.naman etcetera" or any words that made you use dot in between them, as part of the text, they will be blocked. There are some, that isn't blocked in this category. Like check.iclassed, some.ent, whatever.local etcetera, that is because they do not form any domain name at all

Philippine cyber campaign

Are Philippine institutions being targeted or simply being probed? We don't know for certain. It could be either or both. Whichever comes first? What we can understand, with the success of such attacks, is that they have found their way. Really.   How hard or easy? The attacker knows, but probably, also, those being attacked. Inclination should be there no matter how sophisticated our security systems are. In cybersecurity, we do a very focused job. Making sure we disappoint whoever is trying to gain access to any resource without permission and authority regardless of the environment we are in. What happened is that every asset deemed to have every variant of resource built-in, operating, that makes up the entire system working whatever it is trying to employ, in that case the primary purpose. Meaning, we have to know if we are running our system in a manner that is really secure, provisioned properly during design stage and managed continuously afterwards, post-implementation. No

iclassed privacy policy, unbelievable at first sight

Those who, before engaging us and was reading our business conduct, alerts and notices , could not restrain themselves asking, "can you really do your job without keeping any data at all? At the end of the day, you should still be looking at those information and make sure you did, and will, do well. I am expecting a lot from you here, you said so yourself!" Now, that last sentence is so loud. We keep them, not in our premises, but yours. If you've been our clients, you'll know how persistent we are when it comes to the reliability and security of your systems, data and credentials. That's our responsibility, as is made popular by cloud computing, and we don't need to be in a cloud.
