Introduction: Jacadis is a security consultancy based in Columbus, Ohio that applies its “practical security” mandate to small-to-medium sized businesses and government agencies throughout the state. Jacadis used to conduct security assessments the traditional way, which entailed periodic vulnerability audits with manual software tools, correlation of vulnerability data, elimination of false positives, and explanations of the data to clients. “The old approach was really time consuming, expensive and not an effective way to demonstrate best practices in vulnerability and threat management,” says Davidson. Jacadis switched to the QualysGuard on demand vulnerability management solution.
We understand security but approach it from a practical perspective,” says Doug Davidson, CEO and Principal Consultant of Jacadis.

Ohio Dominican University spans more than 64 beautiful acres in Columbus, Ohio. Founded in 1911 as the College of Saint Mary of the Springs, Ohio Dominican University’s liberal arts curriculum teaches skills valuable throughout life and any career – critical thinking, proficient writing, and clear communication. The university’s nationally acclaimed humanities program is at the core of every student’s academic study and Ohio Dominican takes pride in how the university celebrates diversity and individuality.
Even the way the university responded to a recent IT security incident underscores the character of the institution. While Ohio Dominican always has taken its IT security seriously, the university chose to improve its risk management and IT governance efforts by undertaking a deep and thorough reevaluation of all of its various layers of security defenses. “One of the first steps we took was to bring all of our key IT constituents together to conduct an afteraction review,” explains Mike Young, CIO at Ohio Dominican. With 25 full-time employees, ODU’s IT team is lean but able to manage its infrastructure. Find out more..
Introduction: Sitting at his desk in the Columbus, Ohio-based, headquarters office of Glory Foods Inc., Mr. Michael Brown, Director of Agribusiness Development, is making plans for his annual trip south to visit with producers, suppliers, and retailers. For Mr. Brown, his trek down south is one of the year’s highlights.

From Mr. Brown’s perspective, the overriding question is: How does Glory Foods continue to meet the growing demads of various stakeholders in its supply chain, while both honoring the firm’s commitment to linking urban consumers with small- and medium-sized farm enterprises and producer cooperatives, and promoting positive local development in the places where it operates?
