White Papers

Is Your Network Safe Behind Just A Firewall?

Malicious software or "malware" is the biggest network security threat facing organizations today. Cybercriminals target enterprises that hold a great deal of money or conduct a high volume of transactions on a daily basis.

Windstream's Position on Security Compliance

Since Windstream's role is central to customer network security, we as an ISP and Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) must be "ahead of the curve" to maintain our position within the confines of the popular compliance standards because the overwhelming buying triggers for our services surround these standards.

Informational Update For September 11, 2012

Message Mapping: Getting The Right Message To The Right Person


Hello,

Managing a crisis can be extremely complicated. Are you certain that you are sending the right message, to the right person, at the right time in order to elicit the right response? Message mapping is considered by experts to be a critical, incident notification best practice.

Recently, we analyzed first-hand accounts from system administrators and the behavior of message recipients. We also received expert insights from Dr. Robert Chandler, author of the book, Emergency Notification. From this research, we assembled the best practices behind the science of message mapping.

Download the Best Practices for Message Mapping whitepaper to learn:

  • How administrators and recipients react in a crisis

  • How to optimize performance in a crisis

  • How to craft the perfect message, including the 3-3-30 rule

  • How to reach a person, not just a device
