Yesterday at Apple's annual Developer Conference, a new feature, called Sign In With Apple, was announced for the upcoming iOS 13 to be launched to the general public this coming Fall 2019. We've had a number of questions from people asking what our cyber security opinion is about this feature. Bottom line, we are very much in favor of the use of this new feature wherever possible and highly recommend its use over other single sign-on services provided by companies like Google and Facebook.
We are very excited to announce that we are making available the SR2 Secure Cloud Service for Individuals available to the general public today! All new users will receive 1 Gigabyte of storage for free with options to upgrade to larger plans. So what makes this cloud storage service unique from other services like Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive? It's simple. We put your security and privacy first.
An exciting afternoon as Lamar University opened the Science & Technology Building! The first academic building built on campus in almost five decades! Many of the STEM departments will be playing a role in this building including the Computer Science department's new Cyber Security program. While it is a Science & Technology focused facility, they also included several pieces of artwork throughout the building to emphasize the role that the humanities have always played in the world of science and technology. Congratulations to the people of Lamar University on the opening of this great new building!

SR2 Solutions is proud to announce the launch of our own Secure Cloud Storage Service! Cloud storage services are great tools for businesses to be able to share files within their teams and with their clients. They have become essential collaboration tools for organizations of all types. But the well known brands like Dropbox, Google Drive, and Box have been the target of successful cyber attacks that have exposed the confidential files of businesses both large and small costing these businesses millions of dollars in some cases.
Cloud storage systems are excellent for conducting business over the internet. But consumer level systems like Box, DropBox, Google Drive, and others can leave a company vulnerable to having their files accessed by people outside of the company.
Last week, around 2:30 a.m., blaring emergency sirens woke the people of two Texas towns… and then, until about 4:00 a.m., the alarms kept sounding, on and off, until crews finally managed to turn them off.
This shows the importance of keeping your credit and debit card information safe and making sure that you are working with stores and restaurants that will take the needed steps to protect your information.
