Online Security Awareness Seminar (OSAS) – May 2014

Posted on Updated on

We would like to invite you to join our Online Security Awareness Seminar (OSAS) which we will offer in the last two weeks of May. Because of recent security problems such as Heartbleed and the issue with the InternetExplorer we dedicated some time to create this seminar for you. We decided to offer our seminar to everyone who is interested in this subject and to make it also as affordable as possible. During the seminar we will go over the following topics:

OSAS-2014System at risk
When you are working with a computer and the internet you are probably aware about the risks. Let us talk about those systems.

What kind of risks
Heartbleed demonstrated that even big players can not give you any guarantee to be protected. You also need to protect yourself. Let us give you a little overview and talk about the “What kind of risks” each system is facing.

Security vs Convenience
There has to be a balance between security and usability. How much is to much and what is the minimum? Let us talk about it.

Options to secure your system
Let us give you some example how you can protect your systems. We will talk about technics as well as software that can help you accomplishing this goal.

Password creation
We all use passwords to protect our computer, website, social media network, Bank Account and Email. Let us show you how to generate a more secure password which you can also easy remember, hopefully without leaving a clou to others.

At the end of our presentation we will have of course some time to chat with you and to answer questions you may have.

We are looking forward to welcome you in our Consultation Location in the International Mall at 88 West Pender Street where we will offer the seminar every business day from the 20th until the 30th May 2014 from 6:00pm until 7:00pm. You can find the available dates for the seminar in our event calendar where you can also reserve a spot and pay the $10.00 administration fee. Please be informed that there is an additional fee charged by the event page provider as well as additional fees from your credit card provider.

Introducing MyPoi (My Point of interest)

Posted on Updated on

MyPoi LogoToday we would like to give you our first impression of an application called MyPoi. This application is at the moment in an early stage but still something we think you should check out. What you can do with MyPoi is saving your special places, your points of interest by pinpointing them to a map and adding tag(s) to it. You can share this place with your friends, family and colleagues or of course use MyPoi to find this special spot yourself again.

MyPoi_ScreenshotYou can download MyPoi for free and creating an account is also free. When you start the application it will show you a list of your Poi’s sorted by the date you added them. Via the Plus button you can easily add another point of interest. The available fields at the moment are a Title and a Note Box. The Note Box can be used for tagging. Below them you will find a switch to either save your point of interest public or not. MyPoi is designed to work offline too, so you can add your Poi anywhere.

Below the fields where you can enter information about your new point of interest you will find a map and below that a little icon to add pictures.

To check your points of interest you can use the list icon in the top left corner. There you will have also the option to search for other Poi’s. Just enter a keyword or #hashtag and then click search. Your hits will be shown in a list form and selecting a location will provide you more information.

If you prefer to see your Poi on a bigger screen you can also go to the website and check out your story page. Ours is for example http://www.mypoiapp.com/story/teccrab and shows the points of interest we have saved so far. Another feature is the Tag map where you can find Poi’s around you based on a tag check http://www.mypoiapp.com/map/viewpoint as an example.

As mentioned earlier, the application is still in the development stage but shows already promising features. We had the chance to meet Clint Liang, the developer of MyPoi, and to talk to him about his application. He is very excited about the feedback he got so far and is working on implementing a web based interface for users to create POI’s online. He mentioned that it would be great to get even more users involved, because the feedback from them will help to develop an application they like.
