    Spud Software - More Than Just Software

    in Technology

    Software – a set of instructions that make devices perform tasks. It sounds really simple. In reality, it’s likely not, unless of course, you wrote the program. On June 2nd, 2015, host Melissa Birnie will speak with Derek Sommer, President of Spud Software. Spud Software was started in a basement in Grand Blanc, Michigan in 1997 and would catch the attention of the likes of General Motors and MSX International and, after completing several successful large scale projects, would develop a reputation for delivering high quality solutions at competitive prices. Almost 20 years later, Spud Software has worked with more than 200 clients and has established itself as a leader in the industry specializing in programming, database and software development. Join Melissa and Derek as they discuss the challenges Derek encountered as an entrepreneur in the software industry (his wife Gretchen is an entrepreneur, too!), learn about the variety of services Spud Software offers (SaaS, Project Scoping, Software Prototyping, Staff Augmentation, Tier 2 Support, Mobile Apps, Web Services and Custom Programming), and the talent necessary to make it all work.

    Internet of Things (IoT) & the Security Challenges We Face

    in Technology

    The term Internet of Things (IoT) is relatively new and one we are going to be hearing a lot more about. Consider this; currently there are more wireless devices than there are people. The plus side is, of course, all of the great things we can do with this connectivity. The bad side is, at what risk? Recently 104,000 IRS records were breached. Are patient healthcare accounts secure?  These, and questions like them, will need answers as we continue the evolution to a 'connected society'.


    On June 1st, join host Melissa Birnie as she speaks with Dan Lohrmann, Chief Security Officer & Chief Strategist at Security Mentor, Inc., and most recently, Chief Security Officer for the State of Michigan, to learn more about IoT and the security challenges we will face as IoT becomes more prevalent.


    Our guest Dan Lohrmann holds a master’s degree in computer science from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Valparaiso University in Indiana, and has more than 28 years of experience in the computer industry. He is an internationally recognized cybersecurity leader, technologist and author. During his distinguished career, Dan has served global organizations in the public and private sectors in a variety of executive leadership capacities, including enterprise-wide Chief Security Officer (CSO), Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) roles in Michigan. Under Lohrmann’s leadership, Michigan was recognized as a global leader in cyberdefense for government - winning numerous professional awards for outstanding accomplishments.

    060215 Willie Price-Candidate Niagara Falls NY City Council

    in Politics

    In this segment of the Vince Anello show our guest is Niagara Falls city Council candidate Willie Price. We discuss a number of issues. I continue my quest to reach a consensus of opinion  as to what the three major issues facing the city of Niagara Falls are and possible solutions. I ask all candidates the same questions as it  pertains to their own constituency.


    Some callers called in to discuss this past winters frozen water supply lines that left over 200 residents without water. In some instances they were without water for 8 to 10 weeks.


    We discussed the petitioning process to gather  signatures to qualify for a ballot position in the September primary.


    My own personal opinion is that we all should participate in the process and to get involved in all of the 2015 elections.
