[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

Gmail's be careful with this message

You may have looked up at the conversations (https://support.google.com/mail/thread/10086372?hl=en and https://support.google.com/mail/forum/AAAAK7un8RUCBdMOdCbyW4/?hl=en&gpf=%23!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.

Expressed information is key

It must be a great deal, nowadays. Though, not easy to accomplish and as easy as we say it, not impossible to re/construct it considering all the resources being wasted and ruined unwittingly, as the most probable causes ever. Given that we always try hard to be understood every time. With the COVID19 onslaught, or in any manner of emergency cases, it is very important for people to know where to find authoritative information. Mostly, we go to our government and organization's websites, the almost permanent fixture of our public information. We tune in to press conference and telecommunications' alert messaging on behalf of, or directives from the government and, its customers. Sometimes, the news would find us. Governments, international organizations and multinational companies need to have a coordinated strategy how to dispatch information, which can be a guidance what needs to be done and anything special when it comes to the safety and welfare of everyone. Above all, cru
