Is your account Compromised in Data Breach?

For the past few years, we are listening about the data breach in various tech giants. What does it mean for you? If you are using the services of those tech giants, it means some or all of the following data might be at risk.

Names, Dates of birth, Email addresses, Employers, Genders, Geographic locations, IP addresses, Job titles, Phone numbers, Physical addresses, Job titles, Social media profiles data

You might receive Ransom emails for your data too. Just Don’t Panic. Breaches are bad for Companies as well as users. But you know what information is available on the tech Giants Disposal. That data is already public done by you for your Network which can anyway go into Telecaller’s database. So don’t panic, instead, focus what damage can happen to you.

So how do you check if your email id is compromised?
Just head to haveibeenpwned.com, enter your email id, and it will check your data in the database for Recent Breaches. Like my office ID was leaked in Linkedin’s Breach. I know what data I’ve Published on Linked. So Nothing to panic, all I have some spam routing to my mailbox every another day. The only thing to do is to change password, Enable Two-factor Authentications and Ignore all spam emails.

Happy Internet Life to you 🙂

Back to Management Basics – Part 1

Management Basics as a topic on my blog is little absurd to read on MBA Dropout’s page. I was already leading a Team of 12 people when I started my MBA and carried away with Technology than management sessions. Now, I’ve reached I point where I feel I can’t run behind new tech stacks. Its time for me to revisit all the skills I had or I tried to pursue to make something out of it. While going back to basics, I’m publishing my notes here.

Terminologies – Question to Ask
Vision – Where are we going as an Organization?
Mission – When are we successful?
Objectives – What must we be moving towards?
Goals – To reach out objectives, what must we do and by when?
Strategies – How will we meet each goal?
Actions – Who will do what and when will they do it?
Metrics – What do we value that we can measure qualitatively or quantitatively?

WP Curtain Raiser 0.2 Released

Two years ago, I released a plugin on the WordPress repository which adds Curtain Raiser feature to your website for the Inaugural Ceremony.

In India, an inaugural ceremony for Official Website is the most common thing for NGO’s and Government. This plugin is for those who need to add curtain raiser feature to the website for such an Inaugural Ceremony.

What’s New in Version 0.2
Version 0.2 has Solution for Static Home pages.

A year ago Arvind, Friend from Mumbai WordPress Community Called me and shared the Issue. Version 0.1 works well with the site with a blog index as a homepage. When you load static page as the homepage, it loads curtains but loads blog index instead of the static page. Samir shared quick snippet to resolve it, and there is 0.2 available for Download.

I look forward to hearing your feedback on it.
