The wall comes tumbling down…

After 83 years, your brick courtyard walls might need some repair.

This was the case with Bryley’s 1937 historic post office in Clinton, MA, which is being tended by Joe Day and his excellent team at Sterling Masonry of Sterling, MA. (This brick building is so sturdy, it was the Clinton bomb shelter for many years.)

First, the rear-courtyard wall was removed down to the foundation. Next, it will be rebuilt, re-mortared, and then water-proofed.

Dark Web Coin

The barrier to ransomware entry has become so low. Ransomware is now distributed on the dark web like any other Software as a Service (SAAS, e.g. Spotify, Netflix, Dropbox).

Most people think of hackers as geniuses. That’s far from true any more.

The Truth About Your Email Host and Archiving

Whether your business is using G-Suite, Office 365 or another email server, the fine-print agreements release those providers from liability for anything happening to your email data. The reality is Microsoft, Google, etc. are liable for the infrastructure on which your data resides (i.e. if their data center goes down, they’re going to do what they can to get it back and running).
