Businesses have long relied on the recommendations of their customers to promote their products or services. The good things that others say about a business often carry more weight than advertising alone, and smart business owners know that word-of-mouth is a powerful force.

Spectre and Meltdown belong to a category of vulnerabilities called “chip hacks.” These affect the processors of computers, phones, and tablets. Both hacks rely on the manipulation of processor operations in order to retrieve sensitive data. Spectre exploits a design flaw by tricking programs to perform unnecessary actions, potentially exposing confidential data. Meanwhile, Meltdown grabs information from the processor that ordinarily would not be accessible. Please note that both of these hacks would require an actual malicious attempt by a hacker. Without the manipulation of the processor’s operations, private information, such as passwords, is relatively safe. However, if we’ve learned anything about security flaws, it’s that someone, somewhere, will make an attempt before a patch can be applied. The potential for your passwords to be exposed is real.

During the budgeting process, it’s not enough to focus solely on workstations, servers, infrastructure, or bandwidth. While these are important pieces of the overall puzzle, there are also other items to consider when creating your IT budget. VoIP phone systems, application delivery models such as CRMs and PSAs, and disaster recovery planning are also significant considerations.
