After my maternity leave, I found myself coming back to work just in time for the Great Earthquake in Washington, D.C. and the northern Virginia area.  Not a good omen, haha!  While everyone seemed a bit shaken, I was still enjoying the hustle and bustle of being back to work.  Clear blue skies in Washington, smelling the crisp air, hearing the noises of the city, walking on the uneven concrete in DC with the canopy of trees lining Constitution Ave it was great to be back!  I was feeling empowered to make change. While now is a challenging time in Government, it is also an exciting time.  Interestingly enough, the three meetings I had recently were different but the same – meaning, there was a common theme that bubbled to the top.  I participated in the Public CIO Roundtable, then I attended FedScoop’s 3rd annual how to reduce IT government spend, and then attended and participated in a briefing conducted by our Symantec Research Labs (SRL...

One of the benefits to bringing together nearly all of the public sector’s top influencers at the Symantec Government Symposium each year is the opportunity to take a unified snapshot of the federal IT security landscape, and to gauge precisely how perceptions (and realities) have shifted over the past 12 months.

As it happened, this year’s snapshot focused mainly on the security implications of mobile computing and the proliferation of mobile devices in the Federal Government. We polled 195 top IT decision makers (75% Federal, 13% DoD/Intel, 12% SI), and here’s some of what we learned:

  • 75% of Federal IT professionals with responsibility for mobile security say the adoption of mobile devices has increased their security risks.
  • Only 47% of Feds say their organizations adequately manage the mobile devices they use for work purposes.
  • Only 8% of agencies have Mobile Device...

Tiffany Jones, director, Public Sector Programs and Strategy

As one might expect, details are scarce in the declassified version of the DoD’s first-ever cyberspace guidelines (released last Thursday). But from a 30,000 foot perspective, the policy looks sounds.

Consider the five key tenets (or “strategic initiatives”) contained in the directive:

1: Treat cyberspace as a domain for training and equipping defense forces

2: Employ new defense operating concepts

3: Create strong partnerships between agencies and with the private sector

4: Build relationships with foreign allies

5: Leverage U.S. innovation

These are worthy goals, to be sure (in particular, the overarching themes of operational preparedness and information sharing). Even without the details, it’s heartening to see fundamentally sound priorities for a DoD infrastructure that houses—quite possibly—more sensitive information...

About a week ago, we added new interactivity to the third banner on the GeoTrust homepage (Now part of Symantec). Upon clicking on the projector graphic, visitors are presented with a modal overlay featuring an embedded video on how more Alexa top 1 million domains are using GeoTrust. It's an infotaining and engaging video. Enjoy!

After recent hits to major cloud services, the cloud has been compared to airplanes. The idea is that you’re safer in a plane than a car, but when it goes down it will go down spectacularly, and the impact will be more widespread. However, you can’t approach cloud like you would buying an airline ticket—where cheapest fare takes priority.

In a blog post on Blogs and Discussions, my colleauge Dave Elliott, argues that the move to the cloud is more like a car. Before making your decision, you research the reliability and safety features of different models; you investigate safety; and you check out what others have said. Dave provides six tips on how to approach cloud including: look under the hood, consider your precious cargo and take it for a test drive. Read more.

I am have changed the content of a sysprep.inf file in ghost explorere. But when I want to change it back the content is deleted and only a few texts remain.

I went further and deleted the file and pasted another one but, when I paste the new file the content of the new file changes again.

Any idea?
