08 Sep 2015 Tips to help CIOs 'manage the white space' [45734]
CIO, September 8th, 2015

"Something about the CIO role demands comparisons to Greek mythological figures.

For years, I likened the role to Sisyphus, who was condemned to rolling a huge rock up a hill, only to watch it roll back down again. But lately, I have a new figure in mind: Cassandra..."

21 Jun 2015 Verizon 2015 Data Breach Investigation Report Seminar [43611]
Tuesday, June 23rd: 8:30 am - 11:30 am ET

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Hollywood

You are invited to join experts from Verizon's Security and RISK Teams. They will lead interactive discussions pulling from our analysis of over 2,100 breaches in 61 countries. Together, you will explore:

  • A better way to estimate the cost of data breaches, whether just 100 records are stolen or 100 million.
  • How 96% of security incidents fit into just nine categories.
  • Whether the threats posed by mobile malware and the Internet of Things are hype or reality.
  • Steps you can take today to better protect your data.

Following the DBIR briefing, the Verizon Security and Risk Team will explore practical security strategies that can help you anticipate when an incident might occur and assess whether you are prepared to defend against it.

16 Jun 2015 Digital Disruption Boosts Board Acclaim For The CIO Role [43538]
SearchCIO, June 16th, 2015

"What a difference a decade makes. Ten years ago, Jennifer Banner, who serves on the boards of two banks, would have been hard-pressed to pick out their CIOs in a lineup. 'If I'd been in an elevator with a CIO heading up to the board room, I don't know if I would have known [it],' she said. 'That's sad, but true.'

Today, she likens the CIO role to that of an army general, a leader of corporate Navy Seals, a rock star and an important collaborator. 'The CIO position is absolutely critical in helping the board move into that strategy vein,' said Banner, a director at Branch Banking & Trust Corp.; director at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta's Nashville branch; and CEO at Schaad Companies LLC in Knoxville, Tenn..."

05 May 2015 Ask a Wikibon Analyst: Is disk dead? [42487]
SiliconANGLE , May 5, 2015

"With the cost of NAND flash storage dropping like a rock, driven by massive demand in consumer electronics, the storage industry is in the midst of major technological disruption. NAND flash is 1,000 times faster than spinning disk in reads and writes. It's a fraction of the size, uses a fraction of the power and generates a fraction of the heat, allowing multiple spinning disk arrays to be replaced with one all-flash array and flash to be added to the memory bus inside servers. Flash also has huge amounts of IO, allowing companies, for example, to run data analysis, application development and transaction processing on logical copies of a single physical database, rather than making multiple clones..."

01 Dec 2014 InformationWeek's 2014 Chief of the Year Cathy Bessant: What I Believe [39733]
Information Week, December 1st, 2014

"InformationWeek's 2014 Chief of the Year shares what being a cancer survivor taught her, why she dislikes rock-star CIOs, and more.

On not coming up through the technology ranks:

"If I was a classically trained technologist, I would be great at Cobol. And I probably would have come up through the technology side of the company during that period of time when technology and the business really were separate, when technology was thought of as the black box, when the budgets weren't integrated and understood. All kinds of preparation can work for sitting in the kind of job that I sit in today. But now, five years later, I look at the alternative and I feel very fortunate to have come at it from this direction."
