How to Get Free and Affordable Computer Systems Penetration Test at the BlackHat World Conference

Your company may not have the sufficient amount of money to hire a third-party company to conduct a penetration test to all of your computer systems. Even with an internal team to perform it for you, the testing would still entail a considerable amount of expenses. However, there is still a way for a company with budget limitations to employ an effective penetration test to ensure that their business stay afloat in spite of the many security threats that are troubling many companies across the globe. The first question that you need to ask yourself is “what information should your company prioritize in protecting?”

Narrowing Down Data

The data that any of your computer systems hold are all important. However, narrowing them down to the most vulnerable would help you in spending only the money that you have allotted for it. Based on the many security attacks that have occurred to many companies in the past, most hackers and attackers target client and customer information. This is because customers are the ones who are most likely to remain oblivious of the fact that their personal information has been stolen. This gives the hacker the opportunity to act upon the real purpose of stealing their data.

Free Testing of Security Service

The BlackHat World Conference would have participants that can help you assess the vulnerabilities of your computer systems and propose any remedies to it without charging you more than what you can actually pay them. Other information security service providers can even offer you a free test of their service, so you can check if their methods would work for your company. Just remember that even before you agree to the free service, their methods should not compromise your normal day-to-day operations. In most cases, these providers will not need to be on site and would just perform an agreed-upon hacking mimicry from their offices.

Use of HostGator coupon code to give discounts to clients

Nothing is really impossible. No one can predict what waits in the future. No one can presume that a used to be so ordinary student will start the most successful web hosting company that dominates to over 200 countries and had served almost half a million subscribers or clients. A company that has started at the dorm room of the founder, no one can possibly tell that it is going to become what it is today and start extending its root to all over the globe. Not just concentrating to render service to just one part of the world but envisioning in making it global. That is the simple beginning of HostGator that begins everything that it has achieved today.

But why many choose them from the many choices available?

Reliable Service

Feedbacks of those who have tried it speak much of its performance. You cannot always buy people’s opinion. You cannot just pay for them to give testimony as to how reliable your service is. The rating that they get thoroughly favors them that is why many are not thinking twice whether to avail their service or not.

Use of HostGator coupon code

This is also one reason why many customers are staying. Aside from getting the quality of service that is worth the price that they are paying, they can also get discounts if they are just fast in availing it. This strategy of giving codes is widely used by many companies and it has proven to give them favorable results. Thus, it gives them an advantage of not making these customers find another company and shift to them.

With the favorable comment that it gets from its users, there is no doubt that the number of potential customers are also continuously increasing as the demand of its service grows too.

Some Do’s And Don’ts To Copying Pictures

So you’re an artiste’. Fabulous. So you should never, ever need to copy a picture, right? I mean, wouldn’t you just whip one up as needed? Yeah… easier said than done! Okay, so now and then we all need to grab a quick pic from somewhere to use for a project, article, invitation, memo… you name it. And of course when it comes to printing those pics, make sure you’re on the ball when it comes to your ink and your printer. Just because the geeky little acne ridden clerk told you that those were xerox compatible cartridges doesn’t necessarily mean that they truly are. Know your computer and your printer as thoroughly as you know your pencils, charcoal, paints, paper, canvas - whatever your medium.

Know The Ins And Outs Of Picture Copying

  • You are perfectly capable of scanning a picture in your own home with a printer/scanner but be advised: the quality may be less than sufficient and the result will not be an actual photograph and will therefore not hold up as well or as long.
  • What about kiosks that offer scanning? Not all that much better than your home scanner, these are pawed at by everyone that stops to use them and offer much the same end result as your home printer - not a real photo.

Is It Even Legal?

We are all familiar with the term ‘copyright’. Some pictures are copyrighted… some are not. Many contain a ‘watermark’ which prevents others from making a quality copy of that picture but not all copyrighted pics have one. Technically, it is not legal to copy a picture that is copyrighted. Not even if you take it to those scanning/copying professionals mentioned above. When it comes to copying a real photo, such as a portrait, you must get the permission of the photographer that took the shot. Good luck with that, by the way.

Should you want an original work copied for immediate or future use, consider taking it to a professional scanning service. Whether you want a copy on a CD, an immediate copy or both they will be of the finest quality with the added advantage of digital, high resolution properties. Make copies of it yourself or take it back to them to have a professional photograph made from the CD; but you now have the best copy possible thanks to today’s technology.

Portable Advertising Is Great For A Growing Art Business

Advertising is advertising, right?  You couldn’t be further from the truth.  There are more kinds of advertising these days than ever before.

How To Advertise Your Business

Realize ahead of time that advertising costs money.  That doesn’t necessarily mean spending an arm and a leg and it probably goes without saying that the more money you save, the more advertising you can afford to pay for.  Outdoor advertising is probably one of the best methods of promoting a business.  And just exactly where you position your advertising is likely to make a huge difference in not only who you target but the effect that it has on your potential customers.

For this very reason,  portable advertising is a great way to go.  Whether you go with banners, flags, or some other type of advertising signage, if you can pick it up and move it to wherever it is most effective you solve the problem of location… At least partially.  You do of course still need to decide which locations will be best.  But with the use of portable signage, if one location proves to be less than successful you don’t have to worry about the difficulty of relocating your advertising.  It will be quick, simple and convenient.

The Bigger The Banner ...The Better The Sales

Or so you hope.  But bigger and more colorful advertising is far more likely to be noticed than some tiny, colorless black and white piece of insignificance.  And not only is bigger better, but more is better as well.  The more portable advertisements you have the more people you can capture the attention of. Remember also that outdoor advertisements will surely get to more people than advertising within four walls.  For this very reason you want to make sure that your portable advertisements are durable and impervious to mother nature’s elements.  It wouldn’t do to have to replace your method of advertising every time it rains, sleet, snows or the wind blows . Then you might as well have gone with non-portable methods.

And for goodness sake, don’t forget to advertise online.  With social media still enjoying its heyday, not being online is the equivalent of not existing.  It’s important to have a website that people can navigate easily and offer the utilization of a search engine on your homesite as well.

Selling Your Artwork And Drawings Online

  There is something truly rewarding about creating something that someone else wants to buy.  You have put your time, energy, effort and even your soul into a piece of art and it is almost mind blowing when someone sees the value in that work and hands you over the cash to buy it.  Of course, while the money is a bonus to the fact that you are creating something, this may give you the idea to begin selling your artwork online.  You will have competition, but if you have a great marketing campaign, you may be able to make a go of it.


Build A Website

If you want to showcase your work, you will have to build a website that displays your work.  Since you are letting the world see your work, copy writing is essential, so that you don’t see one of your creations popping up in the next fast food ad that airs.  You will want to make sure your website is easy to navigate and truly expresses everything that you want to get across.


There are millions of artists out there and the vast majority of them are unknown.  That doesn’t mean that they aren’t great artists!  In fact, most of the greats weren’t even discovered until after they died.  These artists simply don’t advertise.  If you want to sell your work, you will have to spend money on an advertising campaign to get your name in front of as many people as possible so that you can start selling your work.

With the sheer number of artists out there all trying to take a piece of the same pie, you will have your work cut out for you but if you are strong, determined, patient and talented enough, there is no reason you can’t make a living doing what you love.  It is rewarding to be paid to do what you love and it can inspire you to do more.  In the end, though, for artists, it really is about people seeing your art and feeling something stir inside of them when they do.

Keep Your Graphic Media Offices Clean

No matter what type of office you work in, it is vital that you do your best to keep things clean.  When working in a graphic media office, this becomes even more important.  Not only do you have expensive equipment, which must be maintained, but you also have client materials which are showcasing some sort of graphic design, that you will want to keep as pristine as possible.  These images are your client’s property and you want to make sure that the images stay exactly as your client wants them.  Keeping your office clean only takes a bit of time and can save you a lot of money in the long run.

Images are Important

When you are getting a presentation ready for your client, you want to make sure that the graphics you are presenting are perfect.  Each line, word, image, and message was thought out step by step and the graphic design that you have created for your client is perfect and exactly what they are looking for.  However, if your equipment isn’t clean, or if you somehow manage to get the image itself dirty, the image you present to your client may not be the image you were trying to present, and depending on how bad the mistake was, you may even lose your client. When it comes to graphic design, you really are only as good as your next idea and if your client somehow perceives the image you provided as a bad creative decision rather than mechanical failure, you may lose even more than just that one client.

Image is Everything

For a moment, forget the fact that keeping things dirty can lead to mechanical failure that could potentially destroy an otherwise great presentation.  Pretend that somehow all of that dust, dirt, and grime isn’t going to eventually destroy your office equipment.  Instead, simply think about the image that a dirty office conveys to your clients or even your potential clients.  It would be easy for someone to walk into a dirty office and walk right back out.  A dirty office can give the image of indifference or even incapability.  You want your clients to think that you are the best at everything that you do and if the first impression that they get is a dirty office, they may never even give you a chance to get any further.

It is important to keep janitorial supplies on hand in an office setting to make sure that every situation can be easily cleaned up.  You may even want to hire janitorial staff to keep things clean.  If it’s just you and your coworkers, however, take a few minutes every day to make sure things are clean.
