...visibility. • There should be exceptions as to what products can be ordered online. For example, online shopping may be limited only to smaller items so that customers will still have a reason to visit the store when buying larger items. • Website should include a help section, tutorial section, videos section, etc. where customers can browse for any power tool demonstration, help in tool operation, or training courses. • Customers should be encouraged to create accounts on the website to access more features. This is also to reduce the risk of attackers abusing the website. • The site should include an online consultation feature where customers can seek for help regarding the products sold at HHI. • Security should also be a main focus because increasing the site’s security can add to the customers’ online experience. • An online bulletin can be put up where HHI, customers, suppliers can post announcements, ads or notices about tools or services they offer. • Users should be allowed to subscribe to this bulletin so that they can receive email updates whenever news is posted. • So as not to lose the relationship with customers, HHI should still encourage the customers to visit the stores occasionally or arrange gatherings where customers can consult with the personnel for matters that cannot be discussed online. • Careful consideration should be made in terms of the development of the website. Requirements should be made clear early on to prevent repetitive......

...CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION The beauty-care service industry is now booming. As a business, as well as an opportunity, this sector already started to contribute in the economic growth. Along with the increase of disposable income, the expenditure of the customers in this sector significantly increases. Today beauty care service is not just a luxury, it is a necessity. Along with this growing significance, the issues of service quality and customer satisfaction have also become burning questions. The findings of the study indicated that, when choosing a specific parlor, the customer gave importance to the service provider’s behavior and knowledge, the environment of the parlor, counseling facilities and information-dissemination system, and affordability. This article also reveals that custom-ers of the high-end parlors were highly satisfied with the environment, the executive’s behavior, the complaint-handling system and trustworthiness. The use of materials, service provider’s behavior, executive’s knowledge level, safety and hygiene issues were also satisfactory. Though the customers were to some extent accepting of such factors as service accuracy, understanding customers’ need, prompt service and accessibility, there was still room for improvement. The findings of the study indicated that the common service-quality variables that were creating customer satisfac-tion could be categorized into four broad groups; these are Support & Facility Factor, Employee...

...Recommendation Negatives Not everyone in the 21st century thinks about the negative effects of having social networking accounts - but simple things like not setting your privacy settings properly or liking someone's photo can have bad results. Cyberbullying can be a problem as people can take advantage of the fact that there is no one who can effectively stop the bullying when it happens, due to everything being performed behind a screen. The only way for a bully to be stopped is if they are reported and victims may be too intimidated to do it. Social networking can also ruin relationships as people may get jealous if they find out their boyfriend or girlfriend is exchanging messages with other people. It can also be a waste of time as people can visit a site to check on thing and end up spending the whole day 'behind the screen' and as a result, not doing anything useful with their lives. Positives Social networking has lots of good points You can express yourself, showing off your favourite song lyrics or posting pictures of your new outfit. It is a lot harder to feel embarrassment over the internet than in person, so people find it easier to vent their feelings on sites like Facebook. In fact, it has become so much a part of people's lives that you can learn someone's life story just by checking their page. Their friends, likes and dislikes, relationship status, phone number, address…everything. You can share your feelings and your mental stresses - and it is a great......

Recommendations for Wireless Network Security Policy

...RECOMMENDATIONS FOR WIRELESS NETWORK SECURITY POLICY Introduction One of the newer technologies being increasingly used in today's business is that of wireless networks. While this technology has the advantages of providing greater user mobility and temporary access, it does have the disadvantage of an intrinsic lack of security. SECURITY THREATS There are a number of types of attack that wireless LANs are vulnerable to, based on different aspects of their operation and configuration. These include. i. Broadcast medium Wireless is a broadcast medium, where there is no way to control where the information is sent and who therefore has access to it. If an access point is set up and used in its default Configuration, then the user of such a system is vulnerable to attack, because anyone running sniffer software can see and capture everything that a user does across that network... ii. WEP Vulnerabilities. There were two problems with the original WEP encryption system. Firstly, the shared key system requires the use of the WEP key to verify a user attempting to connect to the wireless network. The second was the actual implementation of the encryption system itself. iii. Denial of Service This type of attack can be perpetrated by a jamming attack which can be either intentional attack which is one in which the attacker broadcasts a very high-power signal at the same frequency that the wireless network is operating on, causing interference to the......

...Recommendation Based on the foregoing findings of the study, the researchers came up with some recommendations which are as follows: 1. Suggestions for further research Other term? Other term? The researchers recommend that further studies be conducted with a different locale, population and methodology. For further studies, the researchers suggest to have a larger sample size (which is representative of the total population/ to generate higher outcomes of confidence level). Further research is necessary to provide more corroborating evidence that would further support the findings of this study. Researchers also recommend to continuously explore changes in demographic factors in order to evaluate whether these changes will affect consumer’s purchase intention as oppose to the results of this study. In addition, it is also suggested to construct the survey which is answerable by Juster’s scale (7 point scale) as recommended by marketers (East et al, 2013). 2. Managerial Suggestions Ang pangit ng sentence ko. haha Ang pangit ng sentence ko. haha The reason why consumers are not likely to buy eco-labelled products is that they are not familiar with eco-labels. Since there is a low positive linear correlation between awareness and purchase intention, marking products with eco-labels could be a viable source of competitive advantage provided that the eco-labeled products have extensive advertisement to increase perceived quality and is on par with other...

Security Recommendations to Prevent Social Engineering Attacks

...Security Recommendations To Prevent Social Engineering Attacks A social engineering attack is a non technical attack that attacks the mindset of the victim. An intruder prefers this attack, because the human mindset has more weaknesses than many systems do. There are several implementations that can be used to deter social engineering attacks. The following are list of security recommendations to thwart social engineering attacks that must be used by all company employees: · Do not click on any links in an e-mail instead scan the link with a virus scanner and type the link in the browser instead of clicking on the link. · Do not open any e-mail attachments without first during a virus scan on the e-mail or e-mail attachments can be blocked. · Do not talk about company business in front of anyone that is not a part of the company this includes family or friends. · Do not hold the door open to let anyone in the building instead have them go to the front desk to present their credentials. · Make sure that all paper company documents are burned in an incinerator. · Install mantraps where access cards must be used to enter in secure or employee only areas. · To obtain lost or forgotten passwords the user must come to the help desk with the proper identification and answer 2 security questions and the temporary password must be changed as soon as the account is accessed. · Internal e-mail addresses should only be given to employees with proper identification that......

...ingredients inserted. Tablet could also be used to view contents inside the refrigerator via camera without having to open the door thereby conserving energy. This formula of providing customers with what they need has worked in the past for Haier in Europe, Pakistan and Japan. Implementation of this recommendation would enable Haier to continue to cater to needs of individuals specifically without enforcing new features/ designs to the market as a whole. This would provide significant product differentiation to them thereby increasing brand awareness. Also consumer trust will increase considering consumers know that they will be paying only for what they need. As for manufacturing, all these features are already being provided by Haier in one form or the other so designing prototypes for all possible combinations would not be difficult considering their research expertise. Automating manufacturing processes might be the only challenge initially in terms of funding but premium pricing strategy would recoup that over time. Haier has made it clear in the past that their strategy is not to offer cheap products, so a premium pricing strategy would fit well. Another benefit of this recommendation is that customer buying behavior would serve as a critical database for Haier to capture and forecast future trends which would enable them to innovate further according to market needs. Satisfying market needs from time to time would increase penetration and visibility resulting into......
