The World's Biggest Data Breaches in one Infographic


By 


Major data breaches, leaks and hacks are becoming more and more common. But beginning to understand the sheer numbers involved may be hard.

Information is Beautiful created a brilliant interactive infographic of the world's biggest data breaches, highlighting some of the most high-profile attacks. It lets you filter by organisation, method of leak, and gives you a brief description of the breach with a source to full articles. It really puts the importance of IT security into perspective and is really rather distressing.

The infographic includes all of the most recent attacks in 2013 such as the recent incidents with Evernote, LivingSocial, Facebook, LinkedIn, Yahoo and Twitter.

But it seems that technology companies aren't the only ones at risk. "Video gaming sites and organizations have suffered the most," said David McCandless, who runs Information is Beautiful. He adds that “in terms of sheer numbers of records breached, they really get owned."

The healthcare industry also faced its share of serious data breaches, which is worrying considering the sensitivity of the data.

The infographic also shows the huge T.K. Maxx security breach in 2007 that put more than 45 million credit and debit card users at risk. The scary thing is that many slip under the radar meaning the illustration may just be showing the tip of the iceberg.

McCandless stated that "some companies such as Twitter are upfront and transparent about getting the news out as soon as they are hacked, while others like Apple are super uncommunicative".

You can click on each attack to learn more about what happened. Click here to check it out.

Infographic - How to use Family Safety on Windows 8


By 


The internet is completely loaded with content and information that is both entertaining and educational for children. Kids now-a-days have access to almost a limitless amount of resources beyond what we ever had when we were their age, and beyond what their grandparents will ever understand. But as with most things, it comes with a dangerous side to it too.

In a recent report by Internet Filter Review, it was found that nine out of ten 8 to 16 year-olds have viewed porn and that the average child is 11 when they see their first pornographic image. Other dangers to the impressionable minds of minors include cyber-bullying, dangerous contacts, viruses and trojans which can steal all your information. So it comes to no surprise that most parents need a little more control to make sure their child is safe from the dangers of the internet.

In Windows 8, the name Parental Controls has become ‘Family Safety’, which includes some improvements over Windows 7 and gives ‘booring’ parents a bit more control.

This infographic shows you how to use Family Safety, a brand new feature in Windows 8. You’ll learn how to set a curfew, prevent violent games being uploaded and restrict access to sites deemed inappropriate for minors.

How to team your network cards in Windows Server 2012 - Infographic


With the advent of cloud computing and mass virtualization of server operating systems, the need for high speed, highly available networking becomes even more pressing. Until now, in a Windows Server environment, the joining together of Network Interface Cards (NICs) into teams was a tricky and time consuming process. It required third-party drivers, specific NICs and some rather technical configurations to get it all right.

So what is a team? The teaming of network cards is simply joining them into one logical entity, with a single IP address. Having done this, you can choose how you want to use this new team.

There are many reasons for teaming your multi-homed servers. Primarily because the networking becomes highly available, you can also lose one of the NICs and still communicate. The team can be set to perform several other functions, including bonding the two bandwidths together and doubling the potential throughput of your connection.

Learn how to team your network cards in windows server 2012 with this useful infographic designed by Firebrand. The content is from our Windows Server instructor Ed Baker.

When will you switch to Windows Server 2012?


It's finally out. Windows Server 2012 has been released and thousands have started integrating it into their network. It had been over 3 years since its predecessor Server 2008 R2 was released and many were beginning to twitch for an updated release. After months of playing with it, Firebrand had many Server 2012 questions answered and got an inside look into its many features; Hyper-V replica, the new ReFS file system, new server manager, Dynamic Access Control, etc…

But there was still one question hanging over our heads; when is the tech industry planning to integrate Windows Server into their network?

To answer this question, Firebrand surveyed over a thousand techies ranging from Database Administrators to CEOs; and from start-ups to FTSE 100 organisations. 

What Firebrand found might surprise you.
