Anti-lock brakes and driver assist systems aim to help motorists avoid an accident, and when one occurs, a host of safety features, like airbags, activate to help minimize injury to the vehicle’s occupants. Cybersecurity for businesses functions much like those assist systems in your car, working to prevent a security breach of sensitive identifying data.

I got to know Nick Cassesi, a wonderful man and dedicated
volunteer, perhaps 16 years when I was The Record's bureau chief in
Lodi. Nick was retired, volunteering for the Lodi Chamber of
Commerce, full of good cheer and energy. It was impossible not to
like Nick Casessi. Sadly, Nick passed away; this tribute to him
from Ray Crow of the chamber captures a man of unique spirit.

Jeff Hood, a veteran journalist who has served as Lodi bureau
chief for The Record newspaper, has been hired as a management
analyst to help the city with its communications needs, City
Manager Blair King said Tuesday.
Tuesday, April 24, 2007 10:00 pm
Did Lodi really need an analyst to handle press releases and
other communications? We've expressed skepticism. Sometimes public
information employees do more to block or impede the free flow of
information than hasten it. That said, if the city needed to make
this hire, they chose well. Jeff Hood, formerly The Record's bureau
chief in Lodi, is bright, articulate and fair-minded. He is also,
he says, committed to making government as transparent as possible.
That's an admirable goal, one we whole-heartedly share.
