Two common Web application attacks illustrate security concerns
Interesting article, Hackers frequently gain access to important data using flaws in IT security systems and injecting malwares into web applications. Organization should conduct regular security maintenance and testing that focuses first on the most common threats to its applications. I work for McGladrey and there is a whitepaper "Two common Web application attacks illustrate security concerns" it offers good information to readers. @ "Two common Web application attacks illustrate security concerns"   http://bit.ly/1c0f35M

security solution
One of the most common causes of data getting in the wrong hands is the loss of mobile devices that often contain a frightening amount of private information. I want to share a protection option that worked for me. Tracer tags (mystufflostandfound.com) let someone who finds your lost stuff contact you directly without exposing your private information. I use them on almost everything I take when I travel like my phone, passport and luggage after one of the tags was responsible for getting my lost laptop returned to me in Rome one time.
