Happy Veterans Day From HCGi


Happy Veterans Day

On November 11, 1919, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson issued a message to his countrymen on the first Armistice Day (changed to Veterans Day in 1954), in which he expressed what he felt the day meant to Americans:

ADDRESS TO FELLOW-COUNTRYMEN

The White House, November 11, 1919.

A year ago today our enemies laid down their arms in accordance with an armistice which rendered them impotent to renew hostilities, and gave to the world an assured opportunity to reconstruct its shattered order and to work out in peace a new and more just set of international relations. The soldiers and people of the European Allies had fought and endured for more than four years to uphold the barrier of civilization against the aggressions of armed force. We ourselves had been in the conflict for something more than a year and a half.

With splendid forgetfulness of mere personal concerns, we remodeled our industries, concentrated our financial resources, increased our agricultural output, and assembled a great army, so that at the last our power was a decisive factor in the victory. We were able to bring the vast resources, material and moral, of a great and free people to the assistance of our associates in Europe who had suffered and sacrificed without limit in the cause for which we fought.

Out of this victory there arose new possibilities of political freedom and economic concert. The war showed us the strength of great nations acting together for high purposes, and the victory of arms foretells the enduring conquests which can be made in peace when nations act justly and in furtherance of the common interests of men.

To us, in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service, and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations.

-- WOODROW WILSON

How daylight saving time affects our bodies, minds -- and world | Sleeping with Science


For places that observe daylight saving time, gaining an hour of sleep every November -- or losing an hour every March -- doesn’t just affect how well-rested (or caffeinated) people are. The effects of the semi-annual time change are far-reaching, drastically changing stroke and car accident rates, stock prices and more! Sleep scientist Matt Walker shares the surprising consequences of DST, and what they can teach us about improving our own sleep health. Sleep -- we spend one-third of our lives doing it, but what exactly do we get out of it? And how can we do it better? In this TED series, sleep scientist Matt Walker uncovers the facts and secrets behind our nightly slumber.

Academia and Industry Team Up To Combat Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities | Intel Business


You may have played capture the flag as a kid, but did you know it’s a term that also applies to cybersecurity? Capture the flag (CTF) events ask teams to hack into devices in order to detect vulnerabilities.

In this episode of Cyber Security Inside, Camille Morhardt gets into the details with Ahmad-Reza Sadeghi, who is a professor at TU Darmstadt in Germany, and JV Rajendran, an assistant professor at Texas A&M. A fascinating discussion that you should definitely check out.

You’ll learn:

- The meaning and history of “capture the flag” (CTF) in the digital realm, especially as it applies to hardware security
- The structure of a CTF event and the kinds of tools and resources made available to participating teams
- How people are trained to look for vulnerabilities, and how they might look for those even without a CTF event
- The various classes of vulnerabilities, and why the trend of replicating them exists in the first place
- How the pandemic has impacted CTF
- And more

Cloud vs Data Center

Storing your organization’s data has become the most important decision you or your CIO will make. The on-premise data center – a valuable asset both the hardware and network itself needs configuring, customizing, management, and maintenance, in addition to having highly trained personnel. Having this complete control is ideal for many companies.

In the cloud-based solution, you rely on someone else’s hardware and infrastructure. Paying for just what you need with cloud computing vendors, can be a cost-saving venture for some organizations. Adding storage as needed gradually increases cost over time. Having a reliable cloud partner is essential to overall security risk and protecting your data.

HCGi has in-depth solutions for both the cloud and traditional data centers. Our solutions architects, account managers, and vendor partners will work to ensure you have the ideal configuration for your organization.
