6 Christian Truths That Make the World a Better Place

The world is kind of a scary place right now. Though most of us find joy in everyday living, our perspective of the world includes senseless violence and murders, rebellion, prejudice, and a lot of hate.

It can be hard to go on social media and perpetually encounter the tangible negativity that fills your endless scroll. But amidst that hate and sadness is the every-shining hope of Christianity.

Even though much of the negativity of the world is directed at Christians, those who believe can find light in the darkness by feeding off some of the most powerful truths known to man. Do you recognize these?

1. Families Should Provide for Themselves

There are countless stories and parables in the Bible that preach about being self-sufficient and providing for yourself and your family. Welfare is a wonderful institution for people who can’t help themselves, but for those who can but choose not to, it’s a crutch that’s tearing the fabric of society.

Christianity teaches that families have a responsibility to work and earn money for themselves, whether by taking an average-pay, nine-to-five job or making millions on penny stocks, like the renowned Timothy Sykes. When families take care of themselves, they find blessings in self-reliance that help them through some of the most difficult times. FULL POST

Vulnerability Testing: Everything you needs to know

If you are technology savvy, you might have heard the term vulnerability assessment or vulnerability testing at least once. In laymen terms, vulnerability assessment or testing is the process that computers must undergo to measure, identify, and analyze most, if not all the system vulnerabilities they may possibly have. In addition to this, it aims to produce a quantifiable list of security issues and possible measures to fix these issues.

How Vulnerability Testing is Important?

You should understand that not a single solution could completely make a system invulnerable to the security attacks. It is unfortunate to know; however, that plethora of myths circulating around the system security were perceived by most as true.

Many businesses; for example, believe that only a firewall is sufficient to become foolproof to possible cyber-attacks. This, and it is conservatively speaking, is not right. There will always be security loopholes that should be corrected.

So where does vulnerability testing come in?

Vulnerability testing services must be conducted so as to assess how cyber security solutions work and how they complement one another to provide the best possible security. Consider this: intrusion prevention systems like firewalls cannot block all viruses from infiltrating. The malware protection software can't secure the data from databases. Each solution has its limitation, as there are many things that they can and can't do. It's a matter of good balancing amongst all these possible solutions. FULL POST
