Google Glass comes in for a lot of derision in tech circles. It's nerdy, distrasting, obnoxious and of questionnable value. Sort of like Twitter in its early days.

But listening to Beth Isreal Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) CIO John Halamka last week shed some light about how Glass can be a life saver. Literally.

When Behavioral Analytics Meets Data Security

There's a new math-based method to identify threats to an organization. Understanding how it works can help us sift through the volumes of false positives and identify previously hidden threats.

Blog-post by,

Many security experts are now examining how mathematical models can be developed that determine baseline behavior across users and machines, detecting and surfacing anomalous and risky activities, and even anticipating threats before they happen. This is the promise of behavioral analytics when applied to data security. In practice, a proper implementation of the underlying mathematics and science must be combined with an ability to observe all the user and machine behaviors in real-time.

I’ve recently been catching up with a series of articles written by Helen Beckett, focused on the relationship between the CIO and the CFO http://businessvalueexchange.com/tag/cfo-focus-series/ I particularly enjoyed her article, Glasnost Between CFO and CIO: But How Does the New Conversation Go?

Seizing opportunity at the very busy intersection of cloud and analytics

This Tech Dossier co-produced by CIO and HP explains why the cloud may a great starting for analytics projects. 

"Developing proof-of-concept and sandboxing analytics in the cloud offers a flexible, scalable way to spin up quickly to evaluate benefits and ROI before making a significant investment. With many businesses looking at shifting more of the IT budget from capital investment to operating expenses, a cloud-based analytics strategy becomes a clear winner."

Most CIOs are familiar with the “cloud conversation.” It might start in a board meeting or IT brainstorm, but always leads to the same place: What can the cloud do for us? From the perspective of most C-suite members, the bottom line is how much software-as-a-service (SaaS), virtualized storage or other cloud technologies can save the company each month. CIOs, meanwhile, are uniquely qualified to evaluate the cloud on both technical and functional merits and provide high-level analysis — here are five things every CIO needs to know when considering the cloud.

Employees simply don't give damn about mobile security

Study shows lack of awareness and cavalier attitudes about corporate data.

A new survey from Centrify Corp. reveals that only 43% of employees using mobile devices for work are keenly aware of mobile security. That means 57% are not.

What's worse is 15% of the North American employees who participated in the survey said their responsibility for corporate data on their mobile devices was "none to minimal."

If accurate, such cavalier attitudes about mobile security poses potential nightmare scenarios for CIOs...especially now since BYOD is the rule and not than the exception.
