A threat actor can attempt to breach a company’s security 1,000 times without getting in. If the hack works on the 1,001 try, the hacker considers it a great success despite the lowly 0.0009 completion rate.  “A hacker only needs to be right once. We need to protect our data and information 100 percent of […]

The IT department’s internal email goes out weekly to Castle Group’s personnel throughout Florida, often spotlighting a current event as a reminder that cyber defense is a collective responsibility. Among the topics recently discussed was the cyberattack suffered by MGM Resorts International, which resulted in a third-quarter loss of $100 million. This incident underscored a […]

The 11 buildings on the Atlanta Technical College’s campus offer students and faculty over half a million square feet in which to study, work or simply relax. In addition to the 307,000-square-foot Academic Complex building, the campus has green spaces with park benches to enjoy a warm, breezy Georgia afternoon. Yet, these spaces aren’t at […]

John Collins – Lynchburg City Schools

As festivals go, this one won’t conjure up memories of Woodstock, Live Aid or Coachella. No one gets inundated by storms causing seas of mud, no rock stars take jets to play multiple venues in a day, and the setting is south central Virginia, not the California desert. But John Collins has very high hopes […]

C. Chris Meystrik – JTV

It’s a term the Grateful Dead used to explain their longevity: misfit power. C. Chris Meystrik nods approvingly when asked whether it’s in the secret sauce of his infotech division at Jewelry Television (JTV). “I like it,” he answers. “At another company, a manager might roll his eyes and say, ‘that guy’s really out there’ […]

Some IT professionals have a college course or video game that inspired them to pursue a career in technology. Richard Maxwell? He had a bad back.  Maxwell was in his 20s when he severely injured his back while working construction jobs in Alabama. A doctor gave him two options: stop working construction or get major […]

Jeffrey Hall – HMC Hospitality Group

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When the first Hooters restaurant opened in Clearwater, Florida, in 1983, the company branded itself as “delightfully tacky, yet unrefined.” Servers in low-cut shirts and short orange skirts served basic fare like chicken wings, burgers and beer. Nearly 40 years later, those staples remain, but behind the scenes, technology infrastructure provides modern conveniences that serve […]

When asked about his successes at Nashville State Community College, Rob Tudor points to the young and middle-aged adults who’ve started or restarted their careers.   There’s the former hairdresser whose income had maxed while her family responsibilities grew.

While some people move to Madison County, Alabama, for the temperate weather, others choose it for its largest city—Huntsville, better known as Rocket City. Home to the largest space museum in the world, the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, Huntsville is where the first rockets that went to the moon were built. Many scientists continue […]

Alan Schomaker – Loyola University New Orleans

The National Hurricane Center calls it the “cone of uncertainty”—the projected track of a hurricane for five days measured from its current position. New Orleans—and Loyola University—were in the cone of uncertainty eight times in 2020 as three tropical storms and two hurricanes struck Louisiana. That vulnerability to storms, as well as a 45-year-old IBM […]

Testimonials

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.
