As consumers increasingly rely on the convenience of online and mobile banking options, their comfort level with this technology grows. Unfortunately, this sometimes makes it all too easy for them to become lax when it comes to online safety best practices.Community financial institutions (FIs) should periodically reiterate online banking safety tips to consumers to help prevent identity theft and other financial loss.Some FIs have developed new and creative ways to inform consumers about the dangers of “over-sharing” their personal and financial information online. However, emphasizing the importance of protecting one’s identity and finances online does not require a massive marketing budget. There are other less expensive, but equally effective, ways FIs can re-educate consumers on the importance of being proactive in protecting themselves online.Community FIs should consider posting the tips below on their websites and in their branch locations:Create strong passwords —Passwords should have at least eight characters and include a mix of uppercase letters, lowercase letters, special characters and numerals. Do not use the same password for more than one financial institution, and do not write any of your passwords down. Change them periodically. FIs should consider working with online/mobile banking vendors to require strong passwords. continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Tags:#enterprise#Products UniBrows, a plugin from Browsium that enables users to use Internet Explorer 8 to view IE6-only sites, was released from beta today. The idea is to enable enterprises that require IE6 for legacy apps to be able to upgrade to newer versions of the browser. This would also provide a path to upgrade to Windows 7, which doesn’t support Internet Explorer 6. UniBrows will also support IE9 in a few weeks, according to Browsium’s Gary Schare.As we’ve reported, Internet Explorer 6 persists in many enterprises for a variety of reasons. Many organizations run third-party or in-house applications that require IE6 but are too expensive to upgrade or replace.UniBrows, which has been in beta for the past six months, gives administrators the ability to specify policies for specific sites that require IE6. IE8 will use UniBrows to load those sites with IE6’s rendering engine and legacy ActiveX components. All other sites will use IE8’s rendering engine and the current version of ActiveX. Browsium licensed several DLL files from Microsoft to accomplish this feat.Update: Schare clarifies that Browsium does not license the DLLs. “Customers download the IE6 components from Microsoft’s website using our preparation tool.”Alternative approaches include running IE6 in a virtual machine, or installing IE6 on a terminal server. The downside is that this requires licensing additional copies of Windows, or buying adequate terminal server licenses at great expense. Browsium will charge organizations with 5,000-50,000 users a $5,000 base license fee plus $5 per seat. Volume licensing agreements are available for larger organizations.Browsium is based in Redmond, WA and was founded last year. 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now klint finley Related Posts IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…
Here’s a roundup of FREE resources to help get your started video editing with Avid Media Composer, especially if you’re an experienced Final Cut Pro editor.Avid Media Composer is probably the video editing system you’ll hear about most frequently when watching behind the scenes featurettes of big Hollywood films or in interviews with network TV editors. This is largely because of its shared storage capabilities and the way in which its much easier for multiple editors to work on the same project at the same time. If you are starting out in the industry today and wondering which NLE to start learning, I would recommend starting with Avid.

MONTEGO BAY – The Roaring River Early Childhood Institution has been selected as the Westmoreland parish project for Labour Day 2013.The school will see major upgrading of its bathroom facilities, ceiling, as well as the painting of walls and other refurbishing work.Mayor of Savanna-la-Mar, Councillor Bertel Moore, in welcoming the project, told JIS News that he is expecting to see a large turnout of persons giving valuable service to the school and their community on Labour Day.For her part, Principal, Lucretia Burt, expressed gratitude that her school was chosen as the parish project, noting that the refurbishing work will lift the morale of the teachers and make learning easier for the 30 students in attendance.“We are looking forward to have the improvement done on the school, and we are happy that it is the Labour Day project for the parish. It is very important to have a school like this in the community. It is the only school in the community that hosts so many children and the parents are part of the school’s work in progress and their input will be greatly appreciated,” Ms. Burt said.In the meantime, Mayor Moore informed that there has been a steady stream of persons and organisations who have been registering Labour Day projects with the Westmoreland Parish Council.The Mayor said that several pedestrian crossings will be painted throughout the parish. This, he said, will aid in the safety of children and other persons on the roadways.He further informed that a bus shed will be erected on the Llandilo road, in front of the School of Hope, and the team will finish one that was erected last year at the Sheffield All Age School.“I want to encourage all the residents in the areas that we are doing projects to come out and get involved,” he urged.“Wherever we do a project, it is for the people of the community, so we want all the communities to get involved wherever we are working on Labour Day,” the Mayor said.He explained that the projects are geared towards protecting the most vulnerable in the various communities. The theme for Labour Day 2013 is “Lend a Hand…Build our Land.CONTACT: GARFIELD L. ANGUS
THOMPSON, Man. — A judge is expected to give a verdict today in the manslaughter trial of an RCMP officer in northern Manitoba who fired a dozen shots into a Jeep following a police chase.Crown prosecutors told the trial in Thompson that Const. Abram Letkeman made only wrong choices in the lead up to the shooting death of Steven Campbell in 2015.Court heard that 12 bullet casings were found at the scene and 39-year-old Campbell, who was drunk behind the wheel, was hit at least nine times.The defence argued that all police officers make mistakes and Letkeman thought his life was in danger because the Jeep was moving toward him.Campbell’s mother, Shirley Huber, says her family hopes the judge finds that the officer’s actions were dangerous and wrong.She says, no matter the verdict, her son’s death shows how important it is for police to have dashboard and body cameras, especially in northern communities.“There has to be a way to document what really happens on those stops and maybe it won’t happen again,” Huber said in a message online.“Maybe my son would still be alive.”Letkeman, 37, pleaded not guilty to six offences, including criminal negligence.The trial heard the officer saw the Jeep being driven erratically shortly after the bars in Thompson had closed.After a failed attempt at a traffic stop, the officer started to pursue the vehicle but did not communicate that to his supervisors.Letkeman testified that he hoped to end the chase by using his police car to bump the back of the Jeep, forcing it to rotate and stop. A use of force expert testified the move was against protocol and training, and was extremely risky.The Jeep ended up on a trail for all-terrain vehicles, where it lost control and stopped. The trial heard Letkeman’s vehicle then T-boned it.The officer testified he didn’t wait for backup and walked in front of the Jeep to do a high-risk takedown. He said the Jeep started moving toward him, so he was forced to fire.Campbell’s girlfriend, one of four passengers in the Jeep, was also shot and injured.A toxicology report showed Campbell had alcohol in his system and was almost 2 1/2 times the legal limit to drive. It also showed a small amount of cocaine.During closing arguments in June, the Crown argued that Letkeman stood in front of the vehicle and fired so that the Jeep couldn’t drive away, not because he was in danger.Prosecutor Christian Vanderhooft said nothing that Letkeman did on the night of the fatal shooting was reasonable.“Each opportunity where that should have been done, the wrong decision was made. Not just wrong — negligent.”The defence argued the officer shot his gun because he had to. Lawyer Lisa LaBossiere told the trial that every officer has made a mistake. She warned that convicting Letkeman would have “a chilling effect” on all police.Campbell’s mother said he shouldn’t have been driving if he was intoxicated, but the mistake wasn’t worth his life.Huber attended the trial and called it the hardest thing she has ever had to do. But she says she won’t be there for the verdict.She says her son was a caring father to his two kids and a kind and loving friend who would give anyone the shirt off his back.“I still miss the man he had grown up to be. A mother never gets over losing a child she carried,” she said. “I miss him every day and know I always will.”Kelly Geraldine Malone, The Canadian Press
