Driving Distracted in the Cloud(s)

Article Written by Avery Phillips

Modern technology has crept into our lives and become essential in so many ways. We are able to reach our children whenever we need to, can take quality photos at the click of a button, navigate to and from various destinations in an unfamiliar place, and text our friends about lunch plans all on one device. What’s not to love? 

Although there are certainly oodles of benefits associated with our smart devices, we humans seem to have a difficult time discerning when these benefits are best put to use – especially when it comes to our devices and driving. Sure, smartphone apps including navigation features have revolutionized the ways in which we are able to get around in a new or unfamiliar area, and apps designed to help us find carpooling and/or taxi services have made our short commutes distinctively easier. But at what cost? 

Driving distractions associated with smart devices are skyrocketing, begging the question, why are we paying more attention to our devices than our fellow humans? Can technological advances, namely the development of driverless cars, help us kick back our distracted driving problems?

By Hoofer

Article Written by Avery Phillips

A strong lock on the door used to be adequate to keep a company’s records safe. Not anymore! Now, with so much information being kept on computers, mobile devices and stored in the cloud, the job of keeping data safe in a corporate environment is more complicated than ever. 

Cyberattacks are on the news frequently, and hackers are a real threat to every company with online access. You have a responsibility to your customers to keep their data safe, but you also store sensitive information about your employees. That too is in danger of being stolen and used for identity theft or worse. 

As a corporate executive, it is your job to put into place all the security measures necessary to keep the company data safe. Some of the policies may not be popular with employees, but it will help to keep you and them safe from thieves and cybercriminals.
