We often talk about balance between safegarding data and access (or privacy as you mention here), but is that really the goal? I woud argue that in most enterprises, safeguarding data is the first priority given all the possible threats to it.
Our #CIOchat yesterday about security nightmares touched on human error, penetration testing, privacy, Point of Sale vulnerabilities, training, education, layered security, 7x24 threat monitoring and who should be charge of enterprise cyber security. The sheer number of topics expresses the complex and never ending task of keeping enterprise data secure.
"More specifically, we learned that data breaches are the top concern for 90% of IT security professionals. Despite this, only 15% of those same IT professionals surveyed, described their organizations as “well prepared” for a security breach."
Every 5 years or so, the IT industry comes up with a new term to represent the industry/technology evolution. Do you remember mainframe, mini, client/server, DCE, object orientation, SOA, web services, cloud ….
Let’s continue our journey discussing the 5 use cases helping you embark on the journey to cloud. Use case 4 is probably one of the most interesting ones and directly responds to the pressure put on the CIO to try keeping IT under control.
First, yesterday the day started with keynotes from Dave Donatelli, George Kadifa and Mike Nefkins. Dave discussed new products in the server, storage and network area, focusing mainly on the software defined ones, describing how HP addresses software defined data centers. George and his team walked us through the HAVEn announcement and showed through three new products how HAVEn can be used to gain better understanding of our IT environments.
As you probably know by now, I have the opportunity to talk to many CIOs about cloud and how to take some of their activities to the cloud. As long as we discuss options, concepts, offerings etc. the discussion is animated. But at one moment, THE question pops up. How can we go after this? How do we start?
