National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day
Thursday, January 7, 2016 - 8:56pm

Saturday, January 9th is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Having worked closely training these brave men and women, we know firsthand what a demanding, high-stress occupation it is. 

Imagine the pressure. They protect our freedoms, property and lives 24 hours a day, seven days a week, risking serious injury so that other citizens may be safe. Their actions and decisions are scrutinized, even though they sometimes have only a moment to make them.

Police work places officers in extremely unpredictable and often dangerous situations. They are trained to expect the...

This is a time of year best spent with family and friends — catching up, sharing a laugh or two and, of course, enjoying too much of a hearty meal.

It’s also a time of giving and thinking of others. At Oak Grove Technologies, those thoughts turn to our country’s brave and dedicated troops overseas. They risk their lives every day to protect our freedom, and they give up the precious time they could be spending with their families so we can enjoy time with ours. We can never thank them enough.

So with that in mind, here are a few ways to give back to the men and women in...

MOBILE DEVICES

As Cybersecurity Month draws to a close, this week we’ll talk about mobile devices. Smartphones and tablets are as powerful and connected as any PC or laptop, and nearly everyone has one. Take the same precautions on your mobile device as you do on your computer with regard to messaging and online safety.

Keep a Clean Machine

Mobile devices are computers with software that need to be kept up-to-date (just like your PC, laptop or tablet). Security protections are built in and updated on a regular basis. As cyber-based threats evolve, it’s critical to stay...

The originating telephone number used by the scammer is displayed or "spoofed" as that of the telephone number of the Charlotte FBI field office

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month and to start the month, let’s focus on one aspect of cybersecurity that everyone is familiar with: passwords.

In many cases, an online password is all that separates the average person from financial or reputational harm—passwords are the way that people log into their online lives: e-mail, banking, social media accounts, cloud storage, and so much more. And often times, in an effort to better remember passwords, users often minimize their size and complexity, use the same passwords for different online accounts, and don’t change...

​What is cloud computing? TechTarget provides a great definition in the 2013 TechTarget’s Essential Guide: Cloud computing is a general term for the delivery of hosted services over the Internet.

Cloud computing is storing your files in a place that is not your local hard drive. Rather, cloud computing allows you to store a file you can access from anywhere, at any time, by any device. There isn’t “a” cloud or “the” cloud – it’s a bunch of services. A lot of data, and we mean A LOT, is already...
