SEK-CAP Is OXEN Strong: Supporting Community Action with Secure, Reliable Technology

SEK-CAP Logo

Southeast Kansas Community Action Program (SEK-CAP) is a non-profit social service agency created in 1966 to combat poverty in Southeast Kansas. Their services address specific community needs such as housing, utilities, transportation, employment, medical care, child care, education, nutrition, and more.

Over the years, countless SEK-CAP employees, volunteers, and partners have demonstrated commitment and dedication to serving the people and communities of Southeast Kansas. Since 2015, OXEN Technology has been pleased to assist SEK-CAP with their technological needs, in support of their mission.

OXEN stepped in to help SEK-CAP after an infrastructure refresh project was approved. The project needed to move forward in order to not jeopardize funding, but due to recent personnel changes, SEK-CAP’s IT staff needed assistance. OXEN was able to help them implement their project and fill the skill gaps needed to support their new server and network infrastructure with Network Essentials managed services.

To assist with their needs, OXEN did the following:

  • Increased Security and Reliability of Server Infrastructure: To secure and stabilize SEK-CAP’s server infrastructure, OXEN Technology implemented remote management services. These include 24/7 monitoring, automated Microsoft updates and security patches, anti-virus/spam services, and performance and management reports.
  • Improved Network Performance: We streamlined and consolidated SEK-CAP’s overall network infrastructure design. They formerly had sizable servers for their needs, so we worked with SEK-CAP to reduce their server infrastructure by 50%. This reduced their ongoing maintenance, monitoring, and lifecycle expenses.
  • Implemented Business Continuity Solution: And finally, OXEN designed and installed a new local and cloud backup solution with virtualization features for SEK-CAP. This backup solution will minimize downtime in the event of a server failure or disaster and helps protect their data.

In addition to these services, OXEN also provides ongoing technical support and project assistance to SEK-CAP. We look forward to supporting their needs in the future and aligning their IT with their goals!

Spring Cleaning Your Spam Filter WhiteList

Spring Cleaning Your Spam Filter Whitelist

| Security | No Comments
It's time to add your spam filter whitelist to your spring cleaning routine. For some of us who have been using the same spam filter for years, we may have a long list of allowed addresses or domains. Because phishing email is involved in 91% of breaches, I can't stress enough how important it is to manage your whitelist. As security has evolved, I continually find things that I did months or years ago that I would do differently today. So, I am learning to go back and review the things that are on autopilot to make sure they meet…

Security Awareness Training: Time to Jump on the Bandwagon

| Security | No Comments
Human error. We talk about it all the time, but what exactly do we mean? Human error occurs when an individual does something with an unintended outcome. In cybersecurity, it’s easy to point the finger at employees as being an organization’s weakest link. An IBM study found that human error accounts for 95% of security incidents, yet security awareness training for employees often ends up on the back burner. But without appropriate security awareness training provided by the employer, how can employees truly know what to watch out for? Is security awareness training a priority? In a recent survey by…
