MARCH 2011 - Incident Response - Michael Podszywalow

For many companies, the threat of attack from malicious worms, viruses and other cyber threats has become an everyday reality of conducting business. As companies have increasingly sought to find new ways of reducing costs and grow revenue, information systems and communications networks have become the foundation for greater operating efficiencies and e-business development.

In a world of commerce that seeks to provide unparalleled accessibility to information, attackers increasingly appear to be able to gain access to sensitive company information and cause disruption to critical business systems.

MARCH 2011 - On interpersonal relations, mutual respect and loyalty. Part 1 - SASMA Team

Interpersonal relations are an essential element in all spheres of our life and they constitute the basis of a well working cooperation in every aspect. When discussing this broad subject, one should remember that there is no such thing as a specimen of interpersonal relations. Relations between people are dependent on numerous factors and they are governed by numerous rules.

MARCH 2011 - Arsenic. The past and the present. - Anna Avraham

On the 14th of January 1840, in the town of La Glandier in the French province, in a palace which wasn't actually palace, a wealthy man was dying, who was actually a beggar, of cholera, which was not actually cholera. If we add to all this the fact that his aristocrat wife was taking care of him, who didn't have a drop of blue blood in her veins, it becomes obvious, that someone owes you some serious explaining. Therefore we explain that our patient is a man in his thirties of the name Charles Lafarge. His wife on the other hand is Mary.
