There are many problems computer support Richmond shops or computer repair in Chesterfield VA deal with.

Most of them have simple solutions, but some might require a closer inspection.

Fixing them can take time, and that time means that the business is losing money.

Although some problems can be quite difficult to handle, most of them can be avoided if people would only understand the right way of using their computers, and other hardware, and would understand that they can troubleshoot some of the issues themselves.What Are the Main Issues That Require Computer Support and Repair in Chesterfield VA?Support for computers can come in a variety of ways.

It can something simple, like fixing an internet connection issue, or it could be something more complex, like setting up networks and granting access to certain users according to security clearances.

Either way, computer support is a vital part of day to day life, both for personal computers as well as for the ones used by various businesses.

Facebook is reportedly looking to hire people who have national security clearances to help prevent foreign governments from using its service to influence future elections.

The decision, first reported by Bloomberg, comes as the social media giant faces intense scrutiny and backlash over the role it advertently played in Russia's influence campaign during the 2016 election.

Facebook apparently plans to use employees which such clearance - who can access information classified by the US government - to receive government information about any potential threats and "search more proactively for questionable social media campaigns ahead of elections," an anonymous source told Bloomberg.

Candidates who do have national security clearance are often former government and intelligence officials, consultants or contractors.

Earlier, security clearances were deactivated once an official or intelligence worker left their government job.

Now, they can be carried over to private sector jobs so long as the position still requires access to classified information.

Major tech companies such as Facebook and Twitter are interested in hiring workers with top-secret security clearances as they deal with foreign meddling on their platforms and come under increased risk of hacks, reports Bloomberg.

From the article: In doing so, companies such as Facebook are competing with defense contractors, financial firms and the U.S. government itself.

Security clearances are a rare and valued commodity, whether at a bank trying to prevent hackers from stealing credit-card data and emptying accounts or at a manufacturer building parts for a stealth fighter or missile-defense radar system.

Bringing former government cyber warriors on board at companies can facilitate interactions with U.S. agencies like the NSA or CIA as well as help the firms understand how to build stronger systems on their own.

"They have the tradecraft," said Ronald Sanders, a former associate director of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and now director of the school of public affairs at the University of South Florida.

"And the trade craft is some of the best in the world."

China’s state-sponsored hackers are showing increased interest in acquiring foreign healthcare research and patient data, as the country grapples with rising cancer rates and an overstretched medical sector, according to cybersecurity researchers.

Why it matters: Aside from concerns over mortality rates, China has a rapidly expanding pharmaceutical industry, which creates lucrative opportunities for homegrown companies that provide oncology treatments and services.

The hackers are part of advanced persistent threat (APT) groups, typically state-backed organizations that access private information for a prolonged period while remaining undetected.

The groups have targeted healthcare organization in the US, Japan, and Singapore, among others.

“One theme FireEye has observed among Chinese cyber espionage actors targeting the healthcare sector is the theft of large sets of personally identifiable information and personal health information, most notably with several high-profile breaches of US organizations in 2015.”

Elon Musk's federal security clearance is being reviewed by the Pentagon after his use of marijuana on a comedian's podcast last year, Bloomberg reported Thursday.

The SpaceX CEO has refiled a questionnaire for national security positions that requires applicants to disclose any use of illegal drugs during the previous 7 years, a US official told Bloomberg.

Musk has a top-secret level clearance because the company he founded and leads is certified to launch military spy satellites for the US government.

The review underscores the ramifications of Musk's appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast in September, where he took a puff of a marijuana blunt during the livestream.

Musk's appearance on the program didn't sit well with NASA's top officials, who earlier this month ordered a review of the workplace cultures of SpaceX and Boeing.

NASA's contracts with the aerospace companies -- worth a combined total of $6.8 billion – require both companies "maintain a program for achieving a drug-and alcohol-free workforce."

According to Gizmodo, "Thousands of files containing the personal information and expertise of Americans with classified and up to Top Secret security clearances have been exposed by an unsecured Amazon server, potentially for most of the year."

From the report: The files have been traced back to TigerSwan, a North Carolina-based private security firm.

But in a statement on Saturday, TigerSwan implicated TalentPen, a third-party vendor apparently used by the firm to process new job applicants.

"At no time was there ever a data breach of any TigerSwan server," the firm said.

"All resume files in TigerSwan's possession are secure.

We take seriously the failure of TalentPen to ensure the security of this information and regret any inconvenience or exposure our former recruiting vendor may have caused these applicants.

Faulty F-15s, at-risk airbases and much more

DEF CON For the first time, Vegas's annual DEF CON hacking conference has an "aviation hacking village", and the US military is scouting around there for a few good hackers to find bugs that its own hackers have missed.

There's a big pool of talent out there and bringing in fresh eyes could show us stuff that we've missed."

Setting up the village and getting the necessary security clearances has been "eight months of pain," one of the organises told us, but judging by the scrum it's certainly popular.

Low-key efforts have been underway for over a year now, and saw a carefully selected and vetted team of non-military US hackers let loose on a F-15 fighter's systems back in November.

They found 22 software vulnerabilities in the aircraft's operating system.

Despite the fact that unsecured data could lead to large fines under GDPR, new research has revealed that unencrypted USB devices are still widely used by businesses.

According to new research from the global security firm ESET and Kingston Technology, 55 percent of businesses don't encrypt their removable devices which could potentially leave them exposed to data leaks.

Cybersecurity specialist at ESET, Jake Moore provided further insight on the research's findings, saying:

“With GDPR one-year milestone just a month away, it is interesting to see what businesses are doing differently to protect themselves from cyber security issues and fines.

The survey reveals that companies are still not adequately protected from data leaks as this level of unencrypted devices means anyone can access personal data without security clearances.

This poses significant security concerns for firms that do not have the processes in place to ensure their data is safe.

WASHINGTON AP — It was time to purge the hacker from the U.S. government's computers.

It lays out missed opportunities before the break-in at the Office of Personnel Management exposed security clearances, background checks and fingerprint records.

The report by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform faulted the personnel agency for failing to secure sensitive data despite warnings for years that it was vulnerable to hackers.

"We had literally tens of millions of Americans whose data was stolen by a nefarious overseas actor, but it was entirely preventable," Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the committee chairman, said in an interview.

The committee's top Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, said he could not support the report because of "several key deficiencies."

That breach went undetected until April 2015, when an OPM contract employee discovered suspicious activity on the network.

In the latest inadvertent data leak, a contractor left thousands of CVs belonging to former US military personnel exposed online

In the latest exposure of sensitive personal data online, a computer security firm has disclosed that the CVs of thousands of former US military personnel, including hundreds with ‘Top Secret’ security clearances, were left available on an Amazon S3 cloud storage repository.

The incident, which involves applicants to a North Carolina-based private security contractor, is the latest to involve misconfigured cloud-based storage repositories.

At least four Iraqi and four Afghan nationals who had provided services to US or Coalition forces were included in the 9,402 documents.

“We take information security very seriously, especially in this instance, because a majority of the resume files were from veterans,” said TigerSwan chief executive Jim Reese in a statement.

The FBI reportedly failed to inform "scores" of US government officials that Russian hackers were attempting to infiltrate their personal emails despite having evidence of the hacking campaign for at least a year.

According to an investigation by The Associated Press, just two out of nearly 80 American officials interviewed said that they learned of the hacking attempts from the bureau.

Over a span of two months, the AP reached out to people targeted by Fancy Bear, a Russian government-linked cyberespionage group, as per a list provided by cybersecurity firm SecureWorks.

The media outlet identified more than 500 US-based people or groups that were targeted and reached out to more than 190 of them.

While many targeted individuals were long-retired, about a quarter still held government positions and had security clearances.

In some cases, a few senior policymakers only found out that they were targeted after the AP told them.

Highly sensitive military data about a US intelligence agency project has been discovered on a publicly accessible server without password protection, according to a new report.

UpGuard said Wednesday an analyst with the security firm discovered tens of thousands of documents last week on an Amazon cloud server that are connected to the US National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), the US military's combat support agency.

Credentials found in the exposed files suggest the data was uploaded to the cloud by defense and intelligence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, UpGuard reported.

The files included the log-in credentials that could have provided access to more sensitive data, including code repositories, UpGuard said.

Booz Allen has a large presence at US intelligence agencies.

The company has a workforce of about 22,600, and 69 percent of its workers hold security clearances with US intelligence agencies, according to company tax filings.
