John Chambers, CEO of CISCO, said that there are two types of computers in the world: those that have been hacked and those that will be hacked. Don’t think you are not at risk because you are not a big national or multinational company. You are at risk of being hacked no matter your size. Hacking isn’t just a problem for Yahoo or a problem for health care providers. In fact small and mid-sized businesses may be more subject to hacking because they are the low hanging fruit and have fewer resources to protect data.
John Lawhorn published an article in the Knoxville Bar Association's DICTA publication (page 13) titled, "Wage Garnishments for Tennessee Employers Just Became More Complicated." In the article, John discusses that there is a likely increase in the number of wage garnishments with which many Tennessee employers must contend, especially those who use independent contractors, and how to respond.
