With tablet usage on the rise and the necessity of child security in today’s ministry, many churches are looking for alternate ways to handle their check-in system. The growing trend to “ditch the desktop” and move to a more flexible and freeform version of the check-in system can leave you with a few headaches as you find there are limitations to wireless setups. This can result in you scratching your head at questions like “How do I get my iPad to communicate with my church data?” “Can I just use my iPad to check kids into class?” and “how do I print check-in labels from my mobile device without a computer?”
If you’re in the ring and fighting for child security in your ministry, these questions are simply hurdles; they’re not roadblocks. By the Book has a great software solution to help you surmount all three in one punch.
Recently I wrote a post about some tips for making your WordPress site more secure.
Now that your site is all secure, you might want to tackle another bane of running a site – comment spam!
Do you despise it as much as I do!?!
If you’ve got a WordPress site, I’m sure you’ll have seen that it comes with the ‘Akismet‘ plugin. Akismet is a spam killing system that’s running by Automattic, the company that ‘looks after’ WordPress (and runs the hosted WordPress solution wordpress.com).
Akismet can do a great job, but there are a couple of things that can make it less attractive:
When was the last time you’ve changed your password?
Do you have the same password for multiple accounts?
In 2011, the number of data breaches in the United States increased by 67%! It seems like we may need to find a new way to make our websites, email and online accounts more secure.
Just look at these numbers:
Getting hacked is more common than you think.
After going through this infographic, I was actually a little surprised to see just how common “hackery” is!
More reason to have a strong password and not a weak one.
Check this out:
Exposing or making it easy for someone to get your database username and password could be more than detrimental, it could be tragic!
Not only could your website be completely highjacked, it could also be deleted. All that hard work–gone!
I never thought I could be someone like this. Only n00bs do this–right?
Have you ever had your social media account hijacked when you stepped away from your computer?
Or how about loosing an entire blog post because one of your children decided to “be like Daddy” and type while you were in the other room?
There are all kinds of scenarios that could arise, from comical to serious, where needing to ‘lock down’ your computer when stepping away would be helpful. Well now you can, automatically, with Keycard.
“I want to quit the gym!,” rings through my head every time I try to cancel an online subscription. It’s a line from an old Friends episode where one of the characters tries to quit his gym membership and has the hardest time doing so.
For both online security reasons and to keep your inbox tidy, it’s a good idea to cancel any accounts that you have hanging around that you’re not using. I know I do!
Here’s where WikiCancel can really help:
Recently I posted about a hole in a very popular caching plugin for WordPress that could make some sensitive bits of your site ‘gettable’ by naughty people (not something you want!).
That got me thinking about WordPress security in general and how I keep my sites secure. I thought it would also be interesting, and very useful, to find out how other people also look after their sites.
So let’s get into some security. Continue Reading…
My first reaction to seeing this infographic on the convergence of personal medical data and technology is a negative one. Maybe it’s the roller coaster of privacy policies from Facebook, Google and others that have jaded me a little.
Considering the tug-of-war that’s occurred between social networks and what we like and what we’re doing, I can only imagine the stakes would be even higher when it comes to our medical data.
On the flip side, however, I could see huge benefits in manipulating the medical information of the masses for the greater good.
