By Bryan Betts PROVERB: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. The problem with phishing is that only incidentally is it a technological attack – it’s primarily a social engineering attack, albeit one that is mainly carried out via email, or perhaps a messaging app. A phishing email might not even have a malicious payload or direct you to a malicious website.
By Bryan Betts, Dale Vile & Tony Lock Whether you think of it in terms of digital transformation, improving the customer experience, enabling new business initiatives, or simply keeping up with ever more dynamic markets, many organizations have realized that software is now crucial to their future success. That in turn focuses attention on improving the software delivery process, and indeed on the entire software lifecycle.
By Tony Lock As part of a recent survey we asked a panel of IT professionals to give us some thoughts on a hot area in the storage world but with a slightly provocative edge, namely “What frustrates you the most about how storage vendors sell their products, and are there any specific irritations in relation to all-flash in particular?” You clearly had a few things on your mind around long established Reg issues such as ‘Hype’ and ‘FUD’, along with, naturally enough ‘cost’.
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".
