DENVER, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- InternetReputation.com is excited to announce a new removal solution for mugshots on Iowa.Arrests.org and other Iowa mugshot websites.
For the hundreds of people arrested in Iowa each and every day, a moment spent in the police station could become years spent in deep regret. That's because the website Iowa.Arrests.org captures both photographs and arrest information within moments of police action, and that information is made public on a website that's free to use and easy for Google to find. The damage a site like this can cause could be immeasurable, and InternetReputation.com is proud to announce a new program that could help to mitigate that impact.
Not Alone in Iowa
Iowa.Arrests.org isn't the only website that publishes mugshots from arrests. The Des Moines Register does the same, as does KCCI in Des Moines. These sites might not be so very damaging, however. The Des Moines Register, for example, deletes images after 60 days, whether people are found innocent or guilty, and neither site allows people to interact with the photos in any way. Iowa.Arrests.org, on the other hand, leaves photos in place indefinitely, and users are encouraged to entertain themselves by "tagging" the photos with insulting names or writing nasty comments under the photos they see. All of the photos on Iowa.Arrests.org are also indexed to Google, meaning that people will see these photos when they run searches for their own names. Employers, future romantic partners, neighbors and more will also see these photos when they run their own searches. The consequences can be catastrophic.
Assessing the Damage
As mugshot sites have become more popular, entertainment websites and blogs have begun to make a habit of crawling through the images, looking for entertaining images of their own they could exploit. That's how people like one Iowa man with a radio station's tattoo on his forehead experience severe reputation damage. This man had unfortunate body art, and when he was arrested in Iowa, his story went viral and was picked up on multiple sites, including The Smoking Gun. Run a search for this man's name now, and multiple sites containing this photograph and disparaging comments will appear.
People who are targeted by Iowa.Arrests.org may claim that they're not troubled by the opinions of strangers. However, as an article in Psychology Today puts it, "… Even those of us with resilient self-esteem live in a great social network and need a good reputation for practical purposes—friendship and income chief among them. It's hard to have friends if people think you're mean-spirited and hard to make a living in any capacity if people think you're lazy, unreliable, or dishonest." It's clear that appearing online with an arrest record could really hurt a person's chances of employment, friendships or good social standing.
InternetReputation.com has developed a sophisticated tool that can identify photos on Iowa.Arrests.org and remove them within seconds. The arrest information will be removed at the same time. In just a few minutes, the entire incident will be in the past, and reputations can be protected. It could be immensely helpful for people in Iowa.

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.

The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Sick, a Senior Manager and Big Data Architect within Ernst and Young's Financial Servi...

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.

There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. Learn about IoT, Big Data and deployments processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
