Edward Burns – Wheel Pros

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but the extent to which some people go to imitate someone else’s patented products can have Edward Burns shaking his head. Automotive wheels are not easy items to infringe upon, he remarks. Especially when they are big, molded and branded with recognized names, and usually sold four […]

Ellis Rosenzweig – CyberGRX

That data breaches are invasive, expensive and frightening is not news. What’s less known is that some of the worst breaches—including the 2013 theft of data from the Target retail chain—are not a result of direct hacks. Instead, hackers can work their way into a corporate network or database through their vendors or third parties. […]
