Fun Questions on Facebook! Yippee!

redpillThere seems to be a viral thing on Facebook whereby posts are created that are asking some of the following:

  1. Whats your favorite color?
  2. What’s your first pet’s name?
  3. What was your high school mascot?

Hate to rain on your parade, but think about this: what security questions have you answered to secure your online bank or credit card account? The same ones? Congratulations, you have now published – forever – the keys to your privacy.

It’s time to stop thinking about privacy as some sort of paranoid or “out-there” idea. EVERYONE needs to be more private.

Many databases – (especially on Facebook, you’ve taken the red pill) track your online habits. If you visit your bank or credit card site, Facebook knows, then matches up ads with your browsing habits. Now consider this: those databases can be hacked (and probably frequently are), AND you’ve published the answers to the security questions on Facebook for everyone to see.

The security questions that websites ask for should be guarded just like passwords.

 

Community Involvement

Giving back to our community to help local organizations grow and prosper.

As a top IT services company for the Arkansas-Oklahoma River Valley, Kirkham Systems understands the importance of giving back to the community to help local organizations grow and prosper. We believe it’s important to stay involved and do whatever we can, whether it’s through the charitable giving of time or offering our services for free or at a discounted rate – we know philanthropic efforts go a long way.

In our endeavor to give back to our community, we help various organizations better leverage technology to continue serving those who live or visit our community. We provide our IT services for free or at a discounted rate to the following:

US Marshalls Museum

The National United States Marshals Museum, formerly known as the “American’s Star” traveling exhibit, was originally located in Laramie, Wyoming. As of January 2003, the museum ceased operations and was placed in storage. The U.S. Marshals Service started looking for a new site. On January 4, 2007, Director John F. Clack announced Fort Smith, Arkansas to be the new host for the exhibit and it’s items and artifacts.

Fort Smith Symphony

Fort Smith Symphony, established in 1923, is the oldest symphony in the state of Arkansas – encompassing over 100 professional musicians who travel from Oklahoma, Missouri, Tennessee, Iowa, New York, Florida, and many other areas to do rehearsals and performances. The orchestra has received regional, national, and international recognition for its fantastic educational programs and achievements.

Fort Smith Museum of History

Fort Smith Museum of History, founded in 1910 as the Old Commissary Museum, acquires, preserves, and exhibits various objects (roughly 40,000 artifacts) that are significant and relevant to the founding and growth of our region. The exhibits are chosen to showcase our citizens’ contributions to the political, cultural, and economic development of the area.

Why do we do this? Because we know these organizations truly provide tremendous value to our community – and quite simply, we enjoy giving back.
