Vast amounts of data are generated daily by a variety of 'things'. Social media, mobile devices, sensors, and many other sources create burgeoning data and are causing organisations to fall into the trap of thinking that collecting as much data as possible will see them become data-driven organisations, and survive the next wave of innovation. Other businesses have invested in data lakes, Hadoop and other technologies to achieve the same goal.
Geekulcha will be hosting the second annual SafeHack Hackathon on 15 and 16 April 2018. The company will be collaborating with some of the big names in the security industry to create awareness about cyber security and the importance of solution providers adopting a "secure by design" mentality. "The hackathon aims to create an experience for the youth that enable them to work on projects that provide real-life experience through interaction with peers and industry professionals.
Identity and access governance (IAG) has become a core part of any enterprise's cyber security strategy. Robust IAG solutions can enable businesses to increase employee productivity and improve their overall security posture. However, in order to get the true value from IAG, it needs to happen at a strategic level that is driven from a top-down approach as well as on a day-to-day basis within IT and business operations.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
