Wal-Mart’s ‘test lab’ a sign of the digital times for bricks-and-mortar retailer
An affluent suburb of Hamilton, Ont. (Ancaster) is ground zero for Lee Tappenden’s discount store of the future.

The chief executive officer of Wal-Mart Canada Corp. is touring a supercentre in Ancaster that is designed for the digital age. It makes big bets on some of the retailer’s top categories, such as groceries, toys, children’s clothing and health and wellness items, and scales back on others, including furniture, cribs and strollers – items that customers are often buying online.

Could Your Company Survive A Ransome Ware Attack?

What would you do if your company computer(s) where gone?
Not stolen just nothing working. All your data is locked.

No emails, accounting, sales information, production,shipping. All gone.
Could your company survive an attack like this?

It’s Ransomeware and it is a real problem.

You turn on your computer and you have a message “ Send us money in 3 days or you will lose all your data”.

The general advice is not to pay the ransom. By sending your money to cybercriminals you’ll only confirm that ransomware works,
and there’s no guarantee you’ll get the decryption key you need in return.

So how do you protect your company’s data?

  1. Back up!
  2. Use a good antivirus program
  3. Keep all your software up-to-date
  4. Trust no one. Malicious malware can be sent through a web browser from a friend’s social media account and DO NOT open email attachments you are not expecting.
  5. Enable the ‘Show file extensions’ option in the Windows settings on your computer.This will make it much easier to spot potentially malicious files. Stay away from file extensions like ‘.exe’, ‘.vbs’ and ‘.scr’. Scammers can use several extensions to disguise a malicious file as a video, photo, or document (like hot-chics.avi.exe or doc.scr).
  6. If you discover a rogue or unknown process on your machine,disconnect it immediately from the internet or other network connections (such as home Wi-Fi)— this will prevent the infection from spreading.
  7. If someone you don’t know calls you and want access to your computer, hang up!

There is a new website created to help you if you have Ransomeware or you would like to know more about this growing problem.

Check it out herehttps://www.nomoreransom.org

    Mobilegeddon 2? What You Need to Know About Google's Upcoming Mobile Update

    Google is increasing the influence of mobile-friendliness when determining which websites to show in mobile search results. With the May update looming, we look back at the original mobile-friendly algorithm update (a.k.a. "Mobilegeddon") and discuss how businesses should prepare for the sequel.

     

    In February 2015, Google sent the search engine optimization (SEO) world into a two-month panic when it published a blog post containing the following paragraph:

    Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices.

    While that might seem fairly innocuous, there are two reasons why it tripped alarms for SEO insiders:

    1. Google rarely announces algorithm updates before they’re implemented, if at all.
       
    2. Any change to Google’s search algorithm is a big event in the SEO world, and the blog post’s wording (“significant impact”) left the door open for a wide range of potential outcomes.

    Between the ambiguity and uncharacteristic two-month warning, the message seemed clear: your site better be mobile-friendly by April 21, 2015… or else. The SEO community quickly dubbed April 21 “Mobilegeddon,” which had enough panache to attract attention of mainstream publications, webmasters, and business owners.

    But for those expecting an apocalyptic Mobilegeddon, 4/21/15 probably felt more like 12/21/12. After the dust settled, there were undeniable changes in mobile search results, but they was hardly earth shattering. According to Moz.com, the number of mobile-friendly web pages in mobile search results increased by two percentage points (from 70% to 72%) after the update rolled out.

    Naturally, there was some confusion and outrage. Was Google pulling a fast one on us? Where were the four horsemen?
