FILE ENCRYPTION

IMPORTANCE OF FILE ENCRYPTION What is file encryption, and why is it essential for every organization to assign resources for file encryption. For better understanding, let me use an analogy. When choosing a house, there are certain security-related factors that someone considers. Firstly, the general security of the location. Secondly, how easy it is to break into the premises.  Last but not least, are there additional security features such as CCTV cameras that will quickly identify any suspicious individuals lurking around. Data protection follows these same principles. Firstly, the location of the data has to be secure. This implies that organizations invest in secure servers to host their data. Secondly, the data shouldn’t be easily accessible. We’ve written before on tips to protect websites.

CRITICAL ELEMENTS OF A WEBSITE

CRITICAL ELEMENTS OF A WEBSITE Previously I’ve written about essential skills for a web designer. Today I will highlight five critical elements of a website.

ESSENTIAL WEB DESIGNER SKILLS

5 KEY SKILLS NEEDED BY A WEB DESIGNER I will summarize five non-technical web designer skills that I feel are the most important to be successful. IMAGINATION Imagination encircles the world. Web design begins with staring at a blank screen. In some instances, clients have a clear idea of what they want. They can give detailed instructions as to what their preferences are. In some other cases, clients aren’t clear as to what they want. As a web designer, your job is to imagine what would best please the client—the designer experiments on new colour schemes and ideas. PATIENCE Everyone I.T professional will tell you coding isn’t for the anxious and impatient. Often, as a coder, you will encounter bugs that require patience to debug.

LABOUR SCHEDULING INFORMATION SYSTEM

LABOUR SCHEDULING INFORMATION SYSTEMS Here is why your business needs an integrated labour scheduling information system. This especially applies to ventures such as hospitals, hotels, restaurants, or where employees operate in shifts.

For businesses that lack a labour scheduling information system, adapting to the change involves manipulating data in spreadsheets. This process will consume much time, aside from creating a chaotic scenario for management. However, well designed human resource information systems ease the process of reassigning tasks or working hours. As a result, it improves the overall efficiency of the organization.

AUDITING INFORMATION SYSTEMS

One can best understand auditing information systems by first understanding auditing from an accounting perspective. On hearing the term auditing, most of our minds quickly relate it to accounting, as it is where we often use the term.
