Since the beginning of the NFL season, Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcom Jenkins has been one of the few players this season to take up the mantle that current free agent Colin Kaepernick left behind. Jenkins has upheld Kaepernick’s silent protest against the killings of unarmed African-American men, women and children by raising his fist during the national anthem. On Thursday night, Jenkins’ teammate Chris Long placed one hand over his heart and another on Jenkins’ shoulder as a sign of solidarity. “I think it’s a good time for people that look like me to be here for people that are fighting for equality,” Long said after the game, Yahoo! Sports reports. Long, who graduated from the University of Virginia and still considers Charlottesville, Va., home, added that after the terrorist attacks by tiki-torch-wielding white men, this week has been trying for everyone. “It’s been a hard week for everybody,” he continued. “I think … [Read more...] about Did Chris Long’s Support of Malcolm Jenkins’ Protest Just Secure Him the No. 1 Pick in This Year’s Racial Draft?
With the latest edition of its security suite, Trend Micro aims to increase protection, reduce bother for the user, and do it all using fewer system resources. Trend Micro Internet Security Pro v2 (Trend Pro) is a significant improvement over last year's edition. Its features hang together better, some user-interface oddities are fixed, and it recovered from installation problems much more handily than version 1.

That certification is fairly uncommon in a new product or version—most suites don't have it. Trend Micro fans won't be shocked by changes to the main window. It looks almost the same, except that the familiar controls are now on a tab named My Computer. Another tab, named My Home Network, offers a network map with a variety of functions. As before, the main window offers an … [Read more...] about Trend Micro Internet Security Pro v2
No security suite is perfect. There's always a chance that a zero-day malware attack will slip past, or that something will just go wrong with the installation. Working your way through the tech support maze can be frustrating. Not with Comodo Internet Security Complete 7, though. GeekBuddy remote-control tech support is available 24/7, and the GeekBuddy techs will help you solve any computer problem, not just security-related troubles. Other suites outperform Comodo in specific security areas, but GeekBuddy support is unsurpassed. In addition to any-day, any-time tech support for all issues, Comodo comes with a Virus-Free Guarantee and insurance to cover costs associated with identity theft. Your $89.99 purchase lets you install the suite on three PCs.

Note that Comodo offers an in-between product, Comodo Internet Security Pro … [Read more...] about Comodo Internet Security Complete 7
A well-entrenched cyber security programme is an absolute must for any budding startups. Data breaches reached an all-time high last year. Millions of people were affected as hackers stole information via phishing emails, watering hole attacks and ransomware. Burgeoning internet penetration and usage made the world a global village. This ease of access and availability also acted as a boon to cyber attackers. Businesses lost cash, reputation and sensitive information and individuals suffered due to breaches in bank accounts. Cybercrime is a huge threat these days and these can be committed single-handedly from a remote location. Cyber security in startups Objectives for cyber security projects If your objective is to showcase to your clients your business’s robust security infrastructure, you can very well put a security certification programme in place.
