Getting a college degree once required students to sit in a classroom, but the leadership of Surry Community College in Dobson, North Carolina, believes there’s a better, more modern approach. “Enrollment has flipped, and today more students have full- or part-time jobs,” says Vice President of Technology Services and Director of Distance Education Dr. Candace […]

Mark Barham – City of Williamsburg

Fifteen years ago, a city council meeting in Williamsburg, Virginia, ran on printed agendas and the occasional memo. While this is the way most cities operated at the time, Director of IT Mark Barham is glad many governments have shifted from this paper-driven environment, Williamsburg included. “There was no interactivity between citizens and their government […]

Break it down, build it up, repeat

More than half of all businesses experienced a data breach at some point in the last year, according to a study released in 2017 by Ponemon Institute, an independent research firm.

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
