You could be talking about a completely different Cloud than they are

In line with the 2015 World Economic Forum (WEF), which took place in Davos, Switzerland in January, the Partnership for Cyber Resilience published its latest report “Towards the Quantification of Cyber Threats” – in collaboration with Deloitte.

The report summarises the activities of the Partnership across 2014, which have been focused on the modelling of “cyber value-at-risk” - in an attempt to build a common cyber security framework amongst stakeholders.

Could a critical element of building The Brand Called IT be that it actually needs to stop talking to the business about the Cloud theory that CIO’s enjoy so much in technology blogs such as this?

Reading CIO profiles

2015 Computerworld IT100 best of the best.

Blog-post by John Dodge, Tue, 02/24/2015 - 23:49

We write a lot of pessimistic things about the CIO role so it's gratifying when the ones who are thriving are celebrated. With that I give you the just out Premier IT100 Class of 2015 from Computerworld.

As you might imagine, many of them are from companies whose primary business is technology - Paypal, Verizon, Intel and Microsoft. But enterprises such as Proctor & Gamble, Johnson Controls, Lockheed Martin and the City of Las Vegas give the Class of 2015 some organizational diversity.

President Obama made an impassioned plea at the Feb. 13 Cyber Security Summit for the private sector and the federal government to exchange cyber threat information. The idea is simple: teaming up is better than separately waging the war against cyber terrorism, spying and crime.

A "resounding no" to funding CIO innovation

Why is innovation within an organization to be limited solely to the span of control of the CIO? Or for that matter, any single business unit?

Blog-post by David J. Hinson, Thu, 02/19/2015 - 16:55

Why is innovation within an organization to be limited solely to the span of control of the CIO? Or for that matter, any single business unit?

I have the same problem with the funding of a single area of an enterprise tasked with the purpose of innovation, that I have with having a single Chief Innovation Officer, that’s somehow supposed to magically transform an entire organization.
