Meridian Means Service — not just to our thousands of clients, but also to our community.

In 2013 Meridian created our Community Outreach Committee. This team consists of employees from all sectors of the Meridian family and is completely voluntary. The committee meets monthly to discuss at issues and organizations about which we are passionate and decide how best we can serve them. Examples of some of the organizations we have supported include the Children’s National Miracle Network and Cornerstones.

In the beginning of 2015, I brought a group to the table that is personally near and dear to my heart, COPS, which stands for Concerns of Police Survivors. The Maryland Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors is a statewide non-profit organization providing programs and services for the survivors of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty in the state of Maryland. Survivors include their family, friends, and co-workers. I am a survivor.

Last year set a record for enterprise data breaches, and 2015 is on a pace to break that dubious achievement.

Small-to-midsize businesses (SMBs) can no longer assume that they are too small or unimportant for hackers and cyber thieves to target. Criminal enterprises consider many types of SMBs, such as medical practices, law offices, engineering firms, and educational institutions to be low risk, high reward targets holding valuable personal identifying information (PII) about their clients.

Business owners need an incident response plan in case their SMB gets hacked, and the time to formulate one is before a data breach incident occurs. For SMBs with fewer technical resources, partnering with a trusted managed services provider (MSP) is an option to consider.

Best practices for dealing with a data breach involve the 3 Ps:

  1. Preparation
  2. Promptness
  3. Protection

Read on to learn about each of the 3 Ps and how they contribute to a solid incident response plan.

DC Copier Service: 7 Reasons You Need a Copier Maintenance Contract and SLA

The modern multifunction printer (MFP) is a marvelous engineering achievement. Through a complex combination of digital electronics, laser optics, and analog engineering, a small-to-midsize business (SMB) can now produce large quantities of high-quality copies and prints in house, instead of ordering them from a print shop. The office printer has become as important to most enterprises as its computer system, making its upkeep and repair just as important.

The best way to ensure smooth print operations is with a service level agreement (SLA), and here are seven reasons why:

  1. Predictable operating costs
  2. An ounce of prevention
  3. Insurance
  4. Only highly trained personnel should work on your MFP
  5. Better service response time
  6. Remote help
  7. Complete and accurate service records
