Fed Report: Wireless Works, But Remains Vulnerable
Wireless networking continues its growth curve, there is no doubt. Government agencies now have the technology embedded throughout their enterprises. A new study by the Government Accountability Office said gaps remain in its security.
Agencies know the technologies and policies needed to secure their wireless connections, but they are not consistently applying and enforcing them, the GAO found.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
