Securing Your Church's Portable Devices

By Rev. Bill Johnson | Sep 12, 2017 9:00:00 AM

 

This excerpt as taken from the ebook Computer Security for Your Church.

The mobile revolution has brought with it a number of new security threats.  Modern devices can carry infected files as easily as floppy disks could in ages past.  Additionally, the threat of devices being lost, stolen or compromised themselves leave a number of concerns which need to be thought through.  While it’s beyond the scale of most church offices to be able to fully secure and administrate these things, there are nonetheless a few simple precautions which can make your data more secure.

Using Bootstrap Framework to Make Mobile Web Design Easier

By Rev. Bill Johnson | Apr 25, 2016 9:00:00 AM

One of the hardest things for a web designer to do, especially one who’s just getting started, is to design a website that looks and functions well on a variety of screen sizes. 

Sites today not only have to deal with the old standard 1024x768, but they also need to adapt to resolutions as low as your smaller smartphones (320x480) and as high as your 4k monitors (3840x2160).  Not only do you need to be resolution aware, but you also need to ensure your site functions across a variety of operating systems, browsers and versions.

4 Best Free Christian Apps

By Hannah Osborne | Aug 10, 2015 9:00:00 AM

Apps blow my mind. Seriously. I remember when accessing the Internet on my phone was a luxury, and if I accidentally opened the Internet my parents would be charged a ridiculous amount for my two seconds of access. Now, I use apps constantly. I have an app that gives me a refund if my groceries were found cheaper elsewhere, an app that teaches me another language, and an app that tracks calories that I’ve eaten and burned.
