Cyber Security - Are You The Weakest Link?


As told by Technical Lecturer, Calvin Riskowitz

If one thing became clear in 2015, it was that no organization, regardless of its size or vertical, is safe from a data breach. A breach can happen to any organization at any time. *Over 169 million personal records were exposed in 2015, stemming from 781 publicized breaches across the financial, business, education, government and healthcare sectors. 

At the same time, the very words "Cyber Security review" conjures horror, fear and trembling in most IT professionals' minds, the thought that they may have to implement another series of security systems, protocols and processes is truly dreaded.

Xyleme expands global partnerships with content developers


Xyleme, the modern Learning Content Management System (LCMS), is used by organizations worldwide to accelerate content development and delivery for today’s fast-paced business environment and mobile workforce. Many of these organizations look for external partners with skills to augment their own internal resources. 

Mark Hellinger, CEO of Xyleme comments: “The impetus for growing our partner channel has been multi-fold. With the release of Xy5 (Xyleme 5) earlier this year, we are being approached by strategy consultants, technology integrators, and content development firms. The need for managed content services is growing just about as fast as the need for flexible, searchable and measurable content. Xyleme is at the forefront of these trends and is very responsive to the needs of our customers.

Microsoft Office 2016 – What’s New?


The 2016 version of Microsoft's productivity suite includes features for easier collaboration and sharing. Excel gets a boost in power, Outlook streamlines everyday tasks, and most applications help you find the command you need. 

The Office 2016 suite is free through the Windows Store, but that version is limited. The full Office desktop app suite is required to gain access to all the features and functionality. If you maintain an active subscription to Office 365, you’ll get the upgrade to Office 2016 at no charge. You’ll also need a Microsoft account and a OneDrive account to take full advantage of what Office 2016 offers.

The latest version of Microsoft Office includes many new productivity, collaboration, and data analysis features. Here are just a few of the top new features.
