            Today I will be writing about everything that needs to be considered in planning a business trip to Japan. The steps I will be laying out could be used as a bare bones outline for steps need to be taken to plan any business trip. The trip I will be planning for is a business trip from Milwaukee to Tokyo but the essential themes of travel planning are the same no matter the destination or duration of your trip. If you follow the steps I lay out you will be prepared to successfully and efficiently plan a business trip. There is a lot of things to be considered when planning this sort of trip, not only do you need to concern yourself with getting all members traveling on the trip to cooperate and up to speed at the same time. You also need to consider the cost associated with every step of planning and where you can best save money in your travel plans.

How to get Certified for Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) – Actionable Plan

Today I will be giving an overview of all of the steps you need to follow to successfully meet your goal of getting the Microsoft Office Specialist Certification. This will include the best steps to achieving this goal as well as all costs associated with preparation and certification. I will also be giving a timeline of what to expect so you can better plan for taking these exams. The Microsoft Office Specialist is a great certification to get because the office suite is widely used in all aspects of business and it is less technically challenging than many of the industry standard certifications. First, I will go over the steps you will need to accomplish in order to achieve this certification in a timely and organized manner. The first logical step is to gather materials needed and schedule the exams themselves. As far as materials go I highly recommend picking up a study guide for each test (more on these later). Once you have your study materials acquired it is time to schedule the exams themselves. There are five different exams to get the Microsoft Office Specialist certification, one for each program in the office suite. I would recommend scheduling your exam ten weeks out as to give you time to fully prepare for the exams, also keep in mind each exam lasts 90 minutes so it will be a full eight-hour day. I live in the Milwaukee area making my closest testing center New Horizons located on 15700 w. Bluemound Road (844.745.3983). The next step in my project plan is to prepare for the exams. I have planned...

In this day and age information security is becoming more and more vital. In a world where every week massive targeted hacks compromised an unprecedented amount of data, and ransomware can bring the largest of companies to their knees we must do everything we can to secure our personal home networks. I think in many cases people focus solely on securing their computers giving little to no thought about their router. This is an unfortunate oversight, securing your router the literal gateway connecting your personal network to the raw internet is every bit as essential as securing your personal computer. Home routers are often targeted in cyber-attacks because the majority of people never change the factory settings. It is amazing how many people leave the default device name and password, doing this amounts to inviting criminals into your network. Not only do people not change these credentials but generally the routers you get from your service provider are subpar and have well documented back doors. I know this sounds scary because in all honesty it is, however there are some very simple steps you can take to validate that your home router is not compromised. One of the most important and basic steps you can take in securing your router is to change the administrative credentials. How to do this varies slightly by manufacture and model but is generally an easy process involving logging into a website or sometimes connecting your computer to the router via ethernet. Once logged in its usually as easy as entering and saving more secure credentials. This is of the upmost importance when it...
Mobile Device Guide: How to Encrypt an Android Device

Mobile Device Guide: How to Encrypt an Android Device

This is a guide describing step by step directions on how to encrypt an Android device. There are several reasons to encrypt your smart phone. It keeps your data protected and secure from hackers, law enforcement and anyone else who has no business seeing it. When you think about what we all use our phones for the argument for encryption is amplified. I use my smart phone to do my banking, take all of my pictures, store medical files and important tax information. Beyond that your phone is constantly tracking you, it knows where you are every moment of your life, it knows where you live, where and when you work and go to school. Much like Santa even knows when your sleeping and awake. Every personal text conversation and email you receive is on your phone as well. Encryption is key to keeping all of this personal private data actually personal and private. I love the idea of encryption because strong encryption is mathematically impossible to break. There is not many things so full proof in life. Encryption has become so important all newer Android devices come with encryption on by default. To write this article I had to use that old nexus 5 I rooted because its running an old enough version of Android that it isn’t encrypted by default. As a side note if you are using a rooted device you must first unroot to encrypt. Encryption was not on be default on any version of Android earlier then Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Before you start the encryption process make sure your battery is fully charged and...
