IT workers with heart

For these companies, employee volunteerism means improved collaboration and productivity on the job

Computerworld – You might think Steve Kranson, who works at Comerica Bank in Auburn Hills, Mich., is your average IT manager. But he’s also been known to log hours dressed up like the Easter Bunny, to the delight of local kids.

Amy Crow, who spends most of her working hours as an IT project manager at Texas Health Resources, has been spotted stepping away from her computer to work on gardening and landscaping projects at nursing homes, organize donated linens and other household items for local disaster relief agencies and sing holiday songs at elementary schools in the neighborhood.

And Paychex Inc. employees Dan Canzano, vice president of IT operations and support, and Tammy Hall, director of enterprise service management, have spent some of their worktime polishing their poker-playing skills and raking in some big bucks for charity.

In all three cases, these IT professionals performed these activities with the blessing of their employers, who often allow workers to take paid time off to donate their skills, talents and time to charities and other nonprofit organizations.
I just interviewed two people under 30. They both asked about personal days for volunteering. Younger folks are asking about community involvement.

Employers also benefit from these arrangements. In fact, they are increasingly more than happy to subsidize employees’ volunteer efforts outside the workplace, because they’ve noticed an undeniable link between employee volunteerism and improved collaboration and productivity on the job.

“Outside volunteer activities afford workers an opportunity to view their co-workers through a different lens,” says David Ballai, CIO at Reed Technology in Horsham, Pa.

“You see them assisting in the community and interacting in a different environment. When they come back to work, they have a more holistic view of their peers and can appreciate how they view the world,” he says. “It’s great for team-building.”

Moreover, volunteerism can enhance a company’s image in the communities where its employees and customers live. And offering time off — either paid for unpaid — for charity work can also help organizations attract younger, more community-minded and tech-savvy employees, experts say.

“I just interviewed two people under 30. They both asked about personal days for volunteering. Younger folks are asking about community involvement,” says Marcia Riley, vice president of talent management and human resources at ESI International, an Arlington, Va.-based training and consulting firm. “I was not asked that question 20 years ago. Younger folks are demanding this benefit, and good employers are responding.”

Anecdotal evidence indicates that an increasing number of companies are offering paid time off to employees who want to volunteer, either on company-sponsored initiatives or at a charity or agency of their own choosing. Comerica, for example, has donated more than 100,000 hours of its employees’ time in the past two years, which translates to more than $2 million worth of volunteer activities in the communities it serves.

Microsoft shuts down malware-friendly Autorun

Written by admin
April 29th, 2011

Microsoft has finally disabled the feature in older Windows versions that helped spread worms like Conficker

Microsoft has, at long last, put the brakes on the notoriously exploitable Autorun feature found in older versions of Windows. Arguably synonymous with “autoinfect,” the Autorun feature is directly responsible for helping propagate worms by giving bad guys a way to easily spread malware via USB devices.

Autorun works by automatically executing code embedded in autorun.inf files on USB devices and other portable media. The change to Autorun, pushed out Tuesday among an array of security patches, disables Autorun via Windows Upate. Disabling the feature previously required manually tweaking the registry or applying a roundabout fix.

The update affects Windows Server 2008 and pre-Windows 7 versions of the desktop OS. Windows 7 comes with Autorun pre-disabled.

Importantly, the change does not affect the behavior of autoplay, which automatically executes the code on CDs and DVDs. Microsoft offer website guidance on its on how to disable that feature.

Public beta testing for the 2012 Norton security products began last Friday. In the few days since, German antivirus test lab AV-Test.org has worked up initial impressions for Norton AntiVirus 2012 beta and Norton Internet Security 2012 beta, and both products definitely made a good first impression.

Norton detected 98.87 percent out of almost 150,000 very recent malware samples, beating the current industry average of 97.71 percent. In both on-demand and on-access tests, it detected 100 percent of widespread “WildList” malware. Since all current products detect 100 percent of those samples, this success isn’t surprising.

AV-Test also challenged Norton to detect, terminate, and clean up about two dozen active malware samples. It detected them all and successfully removed 95.7 percent of them. The average program in this test detects 95.2 percent, removes the active components for 85.7 percent, and fully removes just 47.6 percent. Norton also detected and removed 87.5 percent of active rootkit samples, compared to an average of 56 percent.

The lab didn’t report any measurable slowdown of system operations in daily use, and reported that after the initial full scan, subsequent scans cut 85 to 90 percent off the scan time. Norton also correctly refrained from identifying any of 250,000 valid files as malicious—zero false positives.

The final test challenged Norton to detect and prevent active attacks by malicious Web sites and malicious downloads. It correctly warned and blocked all but one sample, for a success rate of 96.8 percent. The average product detects 80 percent of these threats and successfully blocks 64 percent.

Overall, the Norton products put on a stellar performance, achieving above-average results in every test. AV-Test will replace Norton AntiVirus 2011 and Norton Internet Security 2011 in their ongoing tests once the 2012 editions are actually released. PCMag will put them through a thorough evaluation at that time as well.
