Check out the “Killing IT Reading List” at

Topic 1: Virtual Events -- what you want to see

A different kind of discussion here. Would you rather rush out from quarantine to a channel-focused event, or maybe a sporting event, a social event, or even a concert?

We are still waiting for a "killer app" for online events.

Topic 2: The Economy

Where are we? Note: Wild speculation ahead!

We are clearly on our our way to recession. How soon will we start to move out of it?

How paralyzed are you by the statistics? What are the implications for business when there is so much uncertainty? In the previous topic we talked about the specifics of dealing with this regarding conference events. What about the rest of our economic interactions?

And the big question: What is the best approach for your business to take to guarantee survival in this environment?

Topic 3: Technology after the Pandemic - Office space after the Pandemic

You have to dig a bit . . . but there’s a mention of voice-activated elevators. Dave’s favorite interface!

AD spot:

As you all see too frequently, ransomware continues to bypass antivirus and malware protection, and backups will only help you clean up the mess, that is if they aren’t wiped out during the attack. CryptoStopper is specifically designed to add a layer of protection beyond antivirus and anti-malware by detecting and stopping actively running ransomware on a network in less than a second. It uses bait files to detect and stop ransomware, and runs parallel to, and as part of your current security stack.

Add CryptoStopper as protection to an unavoidable threat, differentiating your service offering and allowing you to secure your customers and their trust.
