By request a CIO, I am posting a recap of last Thursday's #CIOchat about questions CIO candidates might get asked in a job interview. I urge anyone going into such an interview to peruse the #CIOchat between 2 and 3 p.m. ET on May 8. Also check out the preview I wrote last week.
A comprehensive preparedness plan for security breaches is essential. No, critical. The average cost of cleaning up a security breach and the fallout has doubled since 2010 to an average of $12.7 million. And a breach can take up to 65.5 days to resolve.
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?
What questions should a CIO be prepared to answer in a job interview? Well, I found an article in CIO.com in the U.K that lists 49 questions.
So with that, our #CIOchat this week will ask "what questions should CIO candidates be prepared to answer in a job interview." We chat from 2-3 p.m ET on Thursday. Last week's #CIOchat got 34 participants to generate 307 Tweets.
Our world is increasingly becoming digital, I’ve already discussed this often on this blog. Mobility, social, big data and cloud are coming together to form a new style of IT and disrupt the status quo. The way technology is consumed, delivered and paid for is changing fundamentally. Some call this a “tectonic shift”.
A couple days ago I was asked to prepare a presentation for a customer meeting. The subject, well simply put, what is the future of IT over the next 10 years. Unfortunately, I just finished the preparing the presentation using excellent material from my friend John Manley, when I heard the meeting was canceled. Well these things happen. But on the positive side, now I have material for one or a couple blog posts.
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.
