The Top 3 Articles of 2018
2018 has now come to an end, but what a year it was for articles on the infotex blog! Not only did the “infotex writing team” published twenty-two article reviews, (thanks in large part to our Clients for sending them to us), but we also published ten Dan’s New Leaf articles this year. (Maybe Dan turned over a new leaf after all!) We now have a new writing team, the Jolley | Hadaway articles, and Matt Jolley was published in the OBL’s Ohio Record this year! (yay Matt!)
Finally, we invited a “guest writer team” to write a guest article, and boy did that work out great (see our number one article below!)
So . . .
We decided to end this year on a high note by running some reports to see what
our most popular articles were, for the sake of blowing them up a few more!
Here are the top 3 articles of 2018:
2018 started off with a bang!
Right out of the gates, we got Specter and Meltdown, design flaws in the processor architecture of, oh let’s say, 90 percent of the systems in use today.
Not a bad start to the I.T. year.
So, when Eric Kroeger and Jason Mikolanis wrote our first “guest article,’ the timing was perfect. And guess what, our first “guest writer team” was this year’s top article! Nice!
Our second most viewed article is a Dan’s New leaf post. In the absence of specific guidance, organizations are left to use their judgment in retaining logs. Thus, if you missed this article, you may not have had the best answer when your auditor or examiner asked about log retention!
The third article with most views talks was an Article Review about how to motivate your employees toward awareness. Keeping your employees on top of security-related issues can sometimes seem to be a daunting task, and it’s not something that can ever be considered finished: it’s an ongoing process much like the threats themselves.
Thus, Vigilize (the article reviewer, an esteemed role currently held by Matt Jolley) nailed it with this article review!
