Security resolutions for the new year

It’s almost the new year, and with that thought probably comes other thoughts which include new year’s resolutions.

It could be getting a new job because we are miserable in our current one. It might be getting fit and healthy because we’re tired of getting puffed out doing simple things. Perhaps it’s about spending more time in the real world rather than […]
