Time theft can occur in your business when you pay an employee(s) for work they either have not done, or you pay them for time when they were not on the premises. With the growing remote and mobile workforce, time theft has become a much bigger issue for employers. In fact, it has become so big, millions of dollars are being lost every year in productivity. Some other businesses are using factoring invoice companies to pay employees who have cheated the system. This puts a dent in cash flow by paying for work that was not completed.
The following gust post on biometrics increasing IT security was submitted by James Daniels.
It is a fact that passwords can no longer provide sufficient security for your data. The problem with the use of passwords and usernames for security is that they can easily be bypassed by hackers and rogue employees. Due to these obvious flaws related to use of passwords as security measures, biometrics are fast becoming the norm when trying to guard access to critical data. Here are some of the reasons why biometrics are the future of data security.

The utilisation of biometric technology to identify individuals has been in use for years all over the world. As technology continues to advance, biometric technology is also advancing.
Biometric technology refers to the ability to identify an individual based on their unique physical characteristic, behaviors and patterns. Most often biometrics can identify an individual through their fingerprints, the physical structure and characteristics of their face, thru the utilisation of iris and retina scans, and more.
The following guest post on biometrics for mobile device security was submitted by James Daniels.
The mobile biometrics market is booming. The global biometrics system market is projected grow at a compound annual growth rate of 16.79 percent between 2016 and 2022, expanding from $10.74 billion to $32.73 billion. Demand fueling this growth will be led by the financial sector, the healthcare industry, government initiatives and law enforcement. Fingerprint recognition is currently the most popular biometric technology, finding its most widespread application in the travel and immigration sector, but other technologies such as facial and voice recognition are expected increasingly gain currency as well. Here’s a closer look at the biometrics boom and what it means for your mobile device security and lifestyle.
The following guest post on the use of biometric technology by body guards was submitted by Jason Mueller.
The idea for biometric scanners and biometric technology has been around for decades and people have been recording fingerprints for more than a century, but this technology has advanced dramatically in the past 20 years along with the advent of computers and more capable electronics. Today biometrics are used for computer access, to screen employees, to secure buildings and for many other purposes. They’re highly reliable, and cost-effective to use. Even personal body guards are putting biometric technology to use during their jobs.
Cloud computing allows you to get on-demand, convenient, ubiquitous network access to shared configurable computing resources such as storage, networks, servers, services, and applications. More and more businesses are moving and integrating their biometric identification management systems to cloud platforms because of the many benefits this brings. These include:
The following guest post on preventing cybercrime was submitted by James Daniels.
For businesses today, cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly hot topic. As hackers and cybercriminals become more brazen, no business is safe from these online data thieves, who often have the power to tear a previously successful business apart. Since there is often no coming back from a large data breach, it is crucial for companies of all sizes to ensure that they implement only the best cybersecurity strategies and constantly update these methods in order to remain as secure as possible. We’ve listed some of the best modern and emerging new technologies for business owners and cybersecurity professionals to consider using in order to keep their business safe and secure.
The following post on biometric identification in businesses was submitted by Simon Parker.
Biometrics have provided a more dynamic solution for business owners, who now have the ability to navigate various complications such as ID Swapping, undocumented access and the regular badge checking as well. Simply put, biometric systems are particular security systems that are integrated with human characteristics.
The following is a guest post submitted to M2SYS by Lucjan Zaborowski
Every year it’s a common statement to say that cyber attacks and threats evolve with the evolution of technology. A more alarming statement that would more clearly portray the need for sophisticated security technology is that evolving cyber threats also intrude via firewall perimeters; they overcome SIEM detection & prevention systems (both IPS and IDS platforms). Malware is continuously evolving at great speeds. If security technology systems are not continually restructured, modernized, and updated, chances are that all security efforts currently implemented will go in vain.
According to www.cio.com , a new role of security technology advancement is to have systems address more than just privacy and information confidentiality and include reputation and customer channels. So while organizations are building flexibility, the need of the hour, therefore, is to prepare for future consequences and scalability for high impact security.
