How functional and secure AES is

How functional and secure AES is? The Philippine electorate will once again go to polls and decide who will lead the nation in the next six years of their lives. This important event which will elect new president, vice president and 12 senators for national posts, and seats are also being contested for provincial, city and municipal levels, is expected to be counted unofficially in 24 hours, concluded or canvassed officially in a few days or so but authorities and observers expected it to be done in less than a week. Last presidential election, it was known three days after close of election precincts. This is especially true for nation states, not only the Philippines, that conducts their elections using automated election or computerized-and-networked voting systems. In PH, the past automated elections were encumbered with technical issues and fraudulent results, uttered and written everywhere by many concerned and affected individuals and institutions alike. This time, we could say

Gmail's be careful with this message

You may have looked up at the conversations ( and!topic%2Fgmail%2FCBdMOdCbyW4) from Google support and community websites already.

There are no recommendations how to get rid of it yet. Most of the time the error would show when Internet browsers are used to read email messages. Regardless of the creator or developer.

There is nothing we can do about it for now, really.

This is probably a security mechanism to remind Gmail or GSuite email subscribers to not just open an email from anyone. Especially, those unexpected and unsolicited emails even if they appear to be coming from family members, friends, colleagues, suppliers and business partners.

We have observed that the "prompt" usually happens to majority of Microsoft-based Exchange email system being used by the sending party.

These are legit accounts, we have verified them, and even turned on or activated in their domain name system (DNS), the sender policy framework (SPF), which prevents email forgery.

Meanwhile, it is either ignore or simply select "looks safe", which will make the error gone, at least while on the message itself. Remember, only do that to messages, where their origin, you are certain are senders you know and expected. The error will only appear once the email message have been opened. Before opening the attachment and clicking on the link, if any, always double check the senders/from email address and the recipient/to email address.

Criminal knows how to trick unsuspecting and trusting end-users. Sometimes you even need to dig a little bit to identify them.

[TW] IT documents, audit and leaders

IT documents comes with different names such as the following: - Manual or handbook, - Policies and procedures, - Management systems, - Project plans. In the real world we have various names with unique descriptions and purposes when in fact they could be made to do a uniform direction for which actions are based for the entire IT initiatives, probably the longest in IT lifecycle is operation. The problem is our inclination on something else which is wrong. IT remains an IT area. Business remains a business area. The same problem is carried out when we conduct IT audit. Most audit are missing the gists in which IT is being used by businesses. We once said that an effective IT audit is conducted by IT people themselves but there is something wrong with that even. Business and accounting people have been doing it with a different bias and preconceived notions which doesn't make the cut for IT direction and audit respectively. Leaders play the same game and so the problem continues an

[TW] Technology impact on enterprises, consumer and data

The best time to learn the art and science of technology consulting or just the necessary practice required for a business not to be left behind or not to bleed cash unnessentially is now. Technology is magnanimous but it doesn't mean it has to continue being an alien to almost everyone. Technologies surrounding computers, the Internet, programmable devices, sensors, AI, differentiated network convergence and decentralized systems, data and content are gaining an unprecedented development and adaptation within, and greatly affecting, enterprises, societies and their people. It must be the more powerful that everyone become a learned stakeholder, not just an end-user and leave everything to the vendor, service provider and their technology counterparts. Smart cities are a giant technological upgrade and the experience must make people deal more for their lives in a better way. Why make everyone learn? Businesses can focus what matters to them. Technology can primarily help organizat
