  • The Value of Visual Content and a Simplified User Interface
    The Value of Visual Content and a Simplified User Interface
    Daniel Foster, TechSmith & Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler Recorded: Apr 10 2019 59 mins
    It can be difficult to onboard users to new and complex interfaces and workflows. New research shows that images and video enhance understanding and retention of complex information and tasks and can even increase productivity, but software often changes quickly and requires regular updates and localization. How can we leverage the power of visual communication without having to constantly localize new visual content?

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Daniel Foster, Strategy Lead for TechSmith, for this free one-hour webinar. Daniel will show you how a Simplified User Interface helps you create powerful and useful images to help your users better understand your content, while extending its shelf life and often eliminating the need for localization.

  • Let's Talk Cybersecurity
    Let's Talk Cybersecurity
    Scott Abel, Tonie Flores, M.K. Palmore, and Keyaan Williams Recorded: Mar 12 2019 62 mins
    All systems have weaknesses – places where a determined attacker has the potential to breach security and either disrupt your organization or steal your data. Defending your organization and its digital assets starts with understanding your vulnerabilities. Therefore, cybersecurity planning must begin with a solid understanding of the places where your systems, processes, and staff are vulnerable to attack.

    The single weakest part of any system is the people who use it. People are vulnerable to a wide range of exploits, including social engineering attacks such as phishing, which attempt to fool people into revealing passwords or other sensitive information, to insider threats, where employees take advantage of their position to breach security. Phishing remains the number one intrusion vector for threat actors.

    Cyberattacks can come from software, hardware, and people. Business professionals must defend against attacks from all of these sources. Although it may seem out of your control, you are not helpless against cyberattacks. There are things you can do to help protect your digital assets.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for a discussion about cybersecurity with Toni Flores, editor of “The Language of Cybersecurity," M.K. Palmore, Senior Federal Law Enforcement Executive for the FBI, and cyberdefense specialist, Keyaan Williams of Cyber Leadership and Strategy Solutions, LLC. We’ll discuss the current state of cyber warfare and help you understand a variety of vulnerabilities, exploits, defenses and controls.
