A hacker has just released the cryptolocker virus into Schenectady County Community College’s database, and the clock is ticking.

Don’t be fooled by the name; Washington State Community College is not located in the State of Washington, nor is it in America’s capital city.

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
— Katie Patterson, Director of Marketing, Alliant Technologies
