CHARLESTON, WV: Join United Way and Advantage Technology as we host a Lunch and Learn session designed to help non-profits avoid an unwanted cyber-attack. The free event will take place October 11, 11:30a – 1p in the United Way of Central WV offices at 1 United Square, Charleston. Bring a lunch – beverages and desserts will be available.
We are excited to announce that on September 29th, Advantage Technology is partnering with the American Heart Association to promote health and fitness by sponsoring the Charleston Heart Walk! The Heart Walk will begin at the Capitol Complex. From there, participants will walk down Kanawha Boulevard and turn around right in front of our office building at 950 Kanawha Blvd. We live music and a little gift for the first 1,000 walkers!
We have seen a recent uptick in computer networks being hacked through a common internet protocol called Remote Desktop Protocol or RDP. This service provides a user with a graphical interface to connect to another computer over a network connection. It is most commonly used to allow remote access to servers. These hacks have been accomplished through brute force, which is a hacking method where the attacker uses common dictionary words or simple variations of dictionary words to break into systems.
Jack Shaffer likes staying busy. And he likes to make a positive impact. So when he decided to join the Advantage Technology team earlier this year, it was a match made in technology heaven. (No wonder his expertise is in Cloud-based systems!)
