CIO Quick Takes: How CIOs Assess The Value Of Emerging Technology [64261]
CIO, June 16th 2017

"Arthur C. Clarke, author of 2001: A Space Odyssey, wrote that 'any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.' A pithy maxim, to be sure, but one that deserves scrutiny.

After all, emerging technology isn't conjured up like one of Merlin's spells. Emerging technology represents a series of potential investments - in pure capital, time and energy - that have massive implications for the enterprise. Whether the discussion revolves around robotics or virtual reality, or what analyst firm IDC dubs 'augmented humanity,' CIOs have an obligation to keep their eyes to the technological horizon. They must be judicious when assessing the emerging technology landscape, advocating for the smart calls that will help secure their respective organizations' futures.

In this latest edition of our ongoing Quick Takes series, IT leaders from the CIO Executive Council provide their own in-depth takes on how they measure the value of emerging technology..."

How To Stop Wasting Money On Security Shelfware [64289]
CSO Online, June 14th 2017

"Investing in security tools that end-up on the shelf or underutilized is not inevitable, and it can be reduced or even eliminated by some proactive and surprisingly simple first steps...

Shelfware is the big security problem that no one wants to talk about. Loosely defined as technology that remains unused, underutilized or implemented incorrectly, it is the elephant in the room for many chief information security officers (CISOs)..."

No Crystal Ball Required: Coming Security Challenges [64305]
The VAR Guy, June 13th 2017

"Describing today's threat environment as 'dynamic' would be an understatement of gargantuan proportions. As soon as one type of security threat appears to be under control- - or is at least waning in strength - another springs up to wreak havoc. Keeping abreast of this constantly shifting security landscape is hard enough for MSPs working to keep their clients ahead of the curve; projecting future threat trends is even more difficult - but necessary, to ensure that you (and, more importantly, your clients) are not caught off-guard..."
