According to the Global State of Information Security 2015, data breaches cost companies an average of $2.7 million each year. What's more, the total number of IT security incidents rose by almost 50 percent in 2014, while security budgets slipped. With attack numbers on the rise, budgets in decline and recovery costs skyrocketing, companies need ways to decrease risk rather than clean up the mess. Here are 10 essential steps.

IT is all about data!

4 areas to make sure your data up to snuff

Blog-post by,

Is this how you think about IT? Or do you think of IT in terms of the technology it deploys instead? I recently was interviewing a CIO at Fortune 50 Company about the changing role of CIOs. When I asked him about which technology issues were most important, this CIO said something that surprised me. He said, “IT is all about data. Think about it. What we do in IT is all about the intake of data, the processing of data, the store of data, and the analyzing of data. And we need, from data, to increasingly provide the intelligence to make better decisions”.

Many enterprises are still in the beginning stages of their Big Data journey. It’s tremendously useful, therefore, to look out to what trailblazers are doing with their business data. I was at a conference where I had a chance to hear Facebook CIO Tim Campos speak about how the social network approached Big Data. His insights were so compelling I wanted to share them with readers.

Why Librarians Make Excellent CIOs

Blog-post by,

While it may seem taboo to posit that librarians make excellent corporate officers, it makes inherent sense that the people tasked with the collection and distribution of information would make effective information officers. While librarians certainly are not a huge force in corporate America, and library science majors are far from mainstream, this educational background can be a tremendous asset to a chief information officer.

I recently wrote a post about the emerging role of the Chief Data Officer (CDO). The CDO’s skill set varies drastically from the CIO, who typically has been concerned with running the data center and enterprise software. Instead, the CDO concentrates on how to incorporate data that resides within the enterprise with data that lives on external, consumer-facing platforms (Facebook, for example) — and how to make money in the process.

A number of years ago, I worked in the insurance and financial services market. I still keep up with the industry, and I find it especially interesting to watch as Big Data becomes such a vital part of enterprise IT.

As Citibank CEO in the 1970s and early 1980s, Walter Wriston characterized banks as essentially being collections of data — simply put, banks are data businesses. As such, Citibank was strongly influenced by the concept of “bank-as-data-provider.” For decades, investment banks have acknowledged that they are essentially information management companies.

Who’s Liable After a Data Breach?

Blog-post by,
ThuPham

After a data breach undergoes investigation, the unraveling of the mess afterwards can take months, or even years, to resolve. In addition to incurring costs of the requisite free identity monitoring services, as well as the costs of overhauling security in their IT infrastructure, a victim organization can face multiple class-action lawsuits.
