Facilities and Logistics Support from DHA

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

 

The physical needs of a complex IT operation are many. The amount of hardware and software needed to run a large scale operation, combined with the acquisition and management of this inventory, can present a significant challenge for operation managers. Turning to a third-party such as DHA for support allows you to focus on the up-to-the-minute pressing needs of your operation and prevents you from getting bogged down in the minutia and details. DHA offers assistance with procurement and installation of hardware and software, as well as management of physical supplies and detailed inventory. A successful operation hinges on the proper management of these factors, and DHA provides just that.

 

Facilities

 

Getting the facility up and running (or in many cases, multiple facilities, with all the networking necessary for this purpose) can be an overwhelming task. Plus, at the pace at which advancements in IT technology occur, you never know if your equipment may already be out of date and better options available. DHAs network of hardware and software suppliers keeps us on the cutting edge of IT, so your operation’s performance will be bolstered, not limited, by your IT. We provide everything from equipment installation, to radios and surveillance cameras, to cabling and networking.

 

Inventory Management

 

It doesn’t get much more complex than managing the huge inventory of a large operation. DHA is up to the task. Our real-world test inventory strategies keep everything running smoothly and make sure nothing gets lost. From purchasing to warehousing to distribution, we stay on top of your physical assets and get them where they need to go.

eBay is the Latest Victim of a Data Breach

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

 

The online auction site eBay is the latest to fall victim to an extensive data breach. The data breach compromised the passwords of all 112 million users of the site. Other data that was exposed includes:

 

  • Names
  • Email addresses
  • Phone Numbers
  • Addresses
  • Date of Birth

 

According to officials, no other information, such as debit or credit card numbers, was exposed. In addition, PayPal data was not breached, as it is stored on a separate, more secured network. Still, users have been encouraged to change their passwords as soon as possible, and to use a password that is different than the passwords they use on other sites.

 

The breach occurred earlier this year in February and March, “when attackers got their hands on a group of employee log-in credentials that allowed access to the database housing encrypted passwords. It wasn’t until two weeks ago that eBay became aware of this breach due to a detailed forensic analysis,” according to Security Today.

 

According to zdnet, eBay had recently voiced to the Australian Law Reform Commission that it is not in favor of statutory action as a result of privacy breaches. “The Australian Law Reform Commission was tasked last year to review serious invasions of privacy in the digital era, and potential statutory causes of action against companies or individuals in cases of privacy breaches. In a submission to the inquiry, eBay’s acting head of corporate affairs Sassoon Grigorian said that given the company’s own approach to privacy, such an action ‘need not be considered at this point.’”
