Fundamental Element

Posted on

There is no doubt that when we talk about information in the professional field, we are referring to one of the most important assets that manage companies as a basic element on which is based, perform and provide their services. Therefore the management of this information is personal, economic, strategic or organisational cobra a vital importance for the achievement of the set objectives and the good business development. This importance of information creates a need for control and management of the security on the same and not only from a legal point of view in terms of personal data is concerned, but generally to the information managed by a company, becoming an important complement and which brings a plus of trust and commitment to clients or others outside the company. As an example of this point is the increasingly accepted and even required application of ISO standards in recruitment between companies at the international level. But this article wanted to emphasize not the desirability or even need to adopt this type of standards, but one of the most important points that accompany its implementation and necessary requirement for its success, training.

Like any project that includes a new element in the functioning of a company structure, the implementation of an information security management system passes through phases of study, development, approval and implementation, leaving at this point the new protocols established and active, but cannot be understood as complete without the necessary formative work and awareness to the staff concerned. We could use the analogy that it serves little buy a car if you don’t know driving, so the training factor takes capital significance. The average user, that handles confidential information of the company on a daily basis, typically has no knowledge advanced on information security, based its way of working on standards that we call common sense, favoring this basic knowledge to leave lagoons of security that can cause not only financial damage to the company in the form of penalties but lost confidence of present and future clients and therefore lost business. You should be considered which is therefore a fundamental element that within an organization promote continuous training actions aimed at employees looking for an awareness about the importance and necessity of the application of the rules established by the company in the field of security, seeking to understand the why and for what they do and their commitment to its implementation..

The fracking has given the United States a real natural gas boom. Dallas, 30.10.2013. This procedure, a liquid is pressed through holes in the rock, is to produce cracks through which natural gas can be extracted from inaccessible deposits. But what electrifies the global energy industry, environmentalists see, however, critical: fracking would consume huge quantities of water, the liquid is pumped into the rock contained lots of toxic chemicals. General Electric wants to tackle now this problem with a technology, that the cost of water treatment is cut in half, more energy-efficient and reduces the risk of contamination. Because the question whether fracking will play a role for the energy supply in the future in the area, despite the impressive flow rates in the United States. This decisively depends how fracking can be used in an environmentally sound manner.

The procedure of General Electric to eliminate now diluting the effluent as well as transporting. Basis is the Desalination of sea water with the help of membrane distillation: water is heated at low pressure, steam, from which a membrane separating the pure water vapor is formed. He is cooled down in the desalination of sea water at the other end of the process again, so that liquid, not salty water is formed. General Electric has tested the new procedure in a pilot plant, which can prepare nearly 10,000 litres of water a day. At some sites, the wastewater from fracking is not too salty. In arid areas such as the Eagle Ford shale gas reserves in Texas, the procedure might be worth.

If this method works, that would make much out for the further development of the Frackings. It seems comprehensible, feverishly working on the topic. Finally, it involves a lot of money, the investors from the extraction of the fracking-gas by fracking oil promise. But also conventional methods of energy generation in the United States offer interesting alternatives for investors. There it is possible to speak directly to oil or Natural gas sources to participate in. Companies like AMTEX oil & gas Inc. have focused on, open this form of participation to German investors, so that they can participate in America’s energy boom.
