Data Security & Cyber Privacy: Circumstances Have Changed, and So Should IT

Blog-post by,

Lately, it feels like data breaches are making headlines daily. The breaches at Target and Neiman-Marcus, for example, have raised a crescendo of concern that is certainly justified but sometimes a little off base. In particular, there’s confusion over the distinction between online privacy and online security. Some of the commentators have simply been echoing Sun CEO, Scott McNealy’s comments dating back to 1999, suggesting that we all just “get over it” and learn to live without online privacy.

When CIO all-stars become has-beens

Lessons from three real life stories.

Blog-post by, ,

We have all heard the stories or witnessed them first hand.  Perhaps it has happened to you.  A once promising executive suddenly comes crashing to earth in a blaze of spectacular failure.  Sometimes there are ethical or moral failures.  Sometimes, as I noted in an earlier post on executive derailment, the problem stems from a failure to build and maintain peer relationships.  But sometimes it is something else.

How IT must transform to meet the challenge of today’s software-defined enterprise

Blog-post by,
Alec Wagner

Gone are the days when IT was a supporting infrastructure, managed separately from the actual work of the business. More and more, customers make travel arrangements through a browser; manage finances with mobile apps; shop for books, music, electronic devices and insurance, primarily online. Today, IT has moved to the core of what an enterprise does, making every business into a software business. Customer experience and product development are no longer just supported by software, software is now the face—and often the heart—of your business.

David Grimes

Enterprises are under increasing pressure to manage the costs and logistics around an exploding volume of data. Much of that data is “copy data” – the byproduct of enterprise data management processes such as backups, snapshots, disaster recovery programs, and test/dev – which produces excess data that must be stored, often at high costs. As of 2013, IDC estimates that copy data is a $44 billion problem, prompting enterprises to pursue solutions to reduce and better manage it.
