Philmore Productions, whats happening?

Hi folks,
Now its time to reveal what is going on in the Philmore Productions world. In podcast 211, now on the audio RSS, you will learn how a small business such as Philmore can get away with not backing up their database of customer billing information. It turns out, a customer was on the line with me discussing other projects, when the call came in. Not surprising, Philmore Productions thinks it is OK to call a customer at any time of the day or night. The fact that his database was not backed up in months really complicates things in light of recent breaches in the public news such as Target, Michaels, and others. Its not all bad news, because on this podcast, we talk about the good things of this company as well.

I don’t like talking about bad things about a company, but security is one of the topics of this podcast. Philmore Productions should be ashamed of their actions, and hopefully can learn before it is too late. Is it too late? Only time will tell.

Just like the Blue Cross Breach, which impacts more than Philmore ever will get, Philmore will quickly have to learn what is exceptable in the business world in protecting personal information such as credit card number, address, etc. in his database. The JRN and said customer who reported the issue to the JRN, don’t know what type of information is within the database. Philmore was well aware of the target breach, per our last podcast with them. I’m sure that people will be interested in the said podcast, and of course, since we don’t know what happened, we hope the company will let his customers know the truth before it is too late. Were you effected by the issues at Philmore Productions between the 9th of April and today? The JRN would like to hear from you. Send us an E-mail by finding out our E-mail address on the blog and contacting us that way. We hope that this can be a lesson well learned.
