DRI: Business Continuity Management Course

On 17/11/08 - 18/11/08 I've attended the Basic Course of Business Continuity Management (BCM) conducted by DRI-Malaysia at ParkRoyal Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.

The course helps me understand how important the Disaster and Recovery Plan for the organization especially systems serves mission critical operations. I would say it will helps me a lot in designing and planning disaster and recovery strategy, process and implementation of it. At the end of the course, DRI show us a very nice movie clips that shows the whole scenario how BCM can be implemented on the organization. I like the part where one of the workers interviewed by the press. It tells me whenever disaster happen never ever talk to the press, just lets the responsible person for that do their job.

I diffidently suggest this course for you to attend. It promise you a better understand and overview of Business Continuity Plan which actually most organization need them.

"DRI is the international organization of attorneys defending the interests of business and individuals in civil litigation. DRI provides numerous educational and informational resources to DRI members and offers many opportunities for liaison among defense trial lawyers, Corporate America, and state and local defense organizations. DRI also has an international presence, seeking to enhance understanding of the law among members of the defense community who have reason to be concerned with the expanding globalization of litigation defense."

Changing your Microsoft Office Key

1. Close all Microsoft Office programs.

2. Click on Start button, then click on Run.

3. Type “regedit” (without quotes) in the Run text box, and click OK or press Enter.

4. Locate and then click the following subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Registration

Inside, you will find another subkey that resembles the following subkey:


5. Optional: Backup this registry branch by exporting the Registration subkey to a file, just in case the new product key does not work and you have to restore back the old product key. To export the registry, right click on the Registration subkey and click on Export, and follow the on-screen prompt to enter a file name for the registry file and choose a location to store it.

6. Under the Registration subkey, there may be several Globally Unique Identifiers (GUID) subkey that contain a combination of alphanumeric characters. Each GUID is specific to a program that is installed on your computer.

If you find additional subkeys that reference Microsoft 12.0 registration, then click and open each GUID subkey to view and identify the Office product version by the ProductName registry entry in the right pane. For example:

ProductName=Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2007

7. After you find the GUID subkey that contains your Office product or program which you want to remove the existing product license key or registration details, delete the following registry entries by right clicking on the registry entry in the GUID subkey, click Delete, and then click Yes:

• DigitalProductID
• ProductID

8. Exit Registry Editor.

9. Run or open an Office application program, such as Microsoft Word or Excel or Outlook. Office 2007 will prompt you to enter a new 25-character product key.

10. Type in the valid and genuine product key, and then click OK.

11. Then when prompted to choose your preferred type of Microsoft Office 2007 installation, press on “Install Now”.

12. Microsoft Office 2007 will be updated with new product CD key or volume license key, and ready for activation (if it’s a non-VLK serial) or use.

add new line "options b43 nohwcrypt=1"
This ensures that the encryption on wlan0 doesn't interfere with monitoring. This should be only enabled when aircracking with mon0, as it increases the softmac overhead. Remove it from your options list when not using aircrack for a longer time.
