Community Manager

The attached white paper describes in detail how to be ready when it happens if, indeed, a breach, occurs. Are you ready? Are you prepared? Is the right resolution team in place?

My longtime friend and colleague Charlie Cooper (@coopeydoop) suggested the following #CIOchat question a few weeks ago: "How long before CIOs lose their fears about the security in moving their data to the cloud?"

It's a good question, but I anticipated many of the CIOs in our weekly #CIOchat would respond that no one in the enterprise should ever lose their fears about security. The inference of the question as constructed is that adopting the cloud outweighs security concerns.

Blog-post by Gene De Libero, Sun, 03/15/2015 - 00:27

Cybersecurity is the number one concern for CIOs in state security for 2015 – and no wonder. State security systems house an enormous amount of data on any number of people, organizations, and even infrastructures – but keeping your organization’s data safe is just as important.
