How to change when change is constant

Blog Post by Alex Smith on Fri, 21/7/2017 - 17:36

There are a great number of factors beyond the control of most organisations that can apply such pressures – changes in the political landscape, the economy and sociological aspects that may prompt a change in customer demands to name but a few.

Installing SharePoint Server 2016

This is an update to my previous blog post on installing SharePoint Server 2013 - there are very few practical changes to the process for SharePoint Server 2016.

As previously. before installing SharePoint Server we must ensure that all the preparations have been made.

A useful Remote control tool - and a PowerShell command to stop it!

Whilst researching ethical hacking for Quanta's expanding security portfolio, I came across a remote control tool that can control a Windows computer with no agent on the target device. To take control of a remote device, Administrator credentials on the remote machine and access to the IPC$ share through the firewall TCP:445 are required. Additionally it will attempt to 'ping' the target machine before connecting and will not attempt a connection unless ICMP echo requests are allowed.

CompTIA Security +

Company networks & data are of a huge importance to businesses, can you protect yours enough?

CompTIA Security+ or S+ as it is sometimes known, covers network security, compliance and operational security, cryptography, application data and host security, threats and vulnerabilities, and identity management.  This is the primary course you need if your job involves securing network services, network devices, and network traffic.  The course has hands on practical work with Windows operating systems.  Additional ‘out of hours’ reading may be required during and/or after the course. It will also prepare for the CompTIA Security+ exam, which you can take at your leisure.
