From time to time, I hear about the theft of Whatsapp, Facebook, email accounts, etc. How can we strengthen security? The following tips can enhance the functionality of Security System:

Do not use very low risk passwords

Some people will choose some numbers or strings that are easier to remember for fear of forgetting the password, or even use the order on the keyboard to make passwords such as “QWERT”, “12345”, “ASDFG”, etc. These passwords are extremely easy to be cracked by hackers, so it is better to choose some longer (8 characters or more) or even use numbers plus letters to make passwords, such as: “A1v4dOPB”, “GtBVi8La”, etc. As for memory I suggest that these strings represent an important stage of your life or something you like, such as: “Imm150619” (I’m getting married on 15 June 2019, I got married on June 15, 2019)

Enable double password verification

Double password authentication is very common. For example, online banking, you need a security code to log in to your account or transfer money. However, in general passwords, you can generally choose to use SMS or use third-party security coding functions such as Google Authenticator. . I don’t recommend that readers use SMS because this technology is outdated and easily intercepted by third parties. It is very insecure, so it is better to use apps like Google Authenticator.

About two years ago, a smart dog nanny named Furbo was sold in the market. This Furbo can recognize the dog’s various behaviors and push notifications to the owner’s current dog situation, such as dog barking behavior, vomiting, messy size. Two will wait. The R&D group said that they used AI technology in this Furbo to understand the dog’s status through “dog face recognition.” I really feel that the current development of artificial intelligence is becoming more and more mature, and it may not be necessary to a pet sitter.

Access Control System and Co-Working Space

Nowadays, the concept of “co-working space” is very popular, and so do “mobile” and “micro” entrepreneurship. But what is the relationship between co-working space and the access control system? Whether it’s a co-working space (formerly known as business center), the main purpose is to let the tenants access the office space whenerver they need to. Thus, a good access control system can provide them with such convenience and hence will definitely increase their renewal rate.

So what kind of access control system can provide this convenience?

There are mainly three types of electronic access control system provided in the market: a keypad system, a card-swipe system, or biometric identification system such as using fingerprint recognition, or face recognition. If used in a co-working space environment, it is inconvenient to use the keypad access control, because whenever a new tenant comes in, you need to pass the password to them and if for any case you want to change the password, you must notify all tenants, and that will increase your administrative costs. So a better choice will be a swipe-card or biometric access control system. However, in using a biometric identification system, one must delete the tenant’ data whenever they want to move out whereas the swipe-card system, one basically needs to re-collet the key-card when the tenant leaves. Both systems have their benefits and I think the co-working space management should review which is good for them!

“Growth is the king.” The pursuit of high growth seems to be a must for IT entrepreneurs. Whether it is the original GoGoVan, the auction App Carousell, the rental sharing platform Airbnb, Uber, etc. are all aimed at growth. Too many projects that successfully attract capital are aimed at high growth, as if to seize the market is the winning way for these new models of IT entrepreneurship.

With this boom, office rental services have changed, from the original rental model to a new business center model, and then to a shared office model. The revenue model is also changed, from pure renting to recruiting different types of members, to venues booking. In addition to that, it also relies on the gathering of investors and project sponsors to lure investment and entrepreneurship projects and obtain considerable rewards.

Certainly, there are shared office leaders who cooperate with large local banks to jointly organize financial technology innovation centers and cultivate talents. However, how long can these shared office models last? It depends on how many local people believe in technology entrepreneurship. If these new models are unfortunate, they are just a bubble that repeated ten years ago, or the shared office is just a bubble!

Recently, because of the booming Internet, many people use the Internet as an intermediary platform, such as event ceremonies, beauty companies, tutorials, freelances, renovations, and vans. There are more and more of these platforms, and some have even succeeded in finding investors, as if they really made money.

However, there are more platforms and more competition. It seems that the decoration platform, in addition to callx Fu, there are decoration x, good teacher x and so on. These platforms are advertised as offering master matching services, and some even claim to provide case follow-up services. Of course, the quality of the author, I really do not know, it is recommended that consumers look for services, shop around, and then ask friends who have used these platforms to compare is better!

Tahere are new type of offices called co-working that struck China by storm and this type of working trend seems influencing Hong Kong as well. With the first co-working space opened back in 2014, (operated by a big brand company in Hong Kong), few operators now are expanding their reach and open new facilities in Wan Chai.

But is co-working a future of working style?

In a news article, it reported that an open style working space is actually taking place. For example big companies such as HSBC, Berwin Leighton Paisner (a law firm) has been adopted the new style of working, which they believe through collaboration with start-up will bring benefits of the companies digital transformation.

Help Sharing of Knowledge

One of the purpose of co-working space is to share knowledges, some operators constantly open workshops and seminars to attract new visitors so that they can grow their businesses. Sharing knowledge is a good idea but the fact is with some many co-working spaces in Hong Kong, how can this industry survive? Probably this is the question the industry should ask.
