What is the role of the CIO and the IT function in the future

The role of the CIO and IT in the future is a rapid proactive force ‘joined at the hip’ with the General Manager to make consistently high-quality business decisions through analytical expertise that produces decision-relevant information.

The CIO role is one that requires multi and cross-functional skills sets to lead and manage change using project management enablers. It is a problem-solving function and is visible throughout the organization, a strong can-do attitude with a balance of being the conscience of the company.
The IT applications have moved away from transaction processing and month-end ‘backward-looking’ close processes. Instead strategic information processing is used as a tool to improve and grow the business, while managing risk and controls.

A trick to improve security to software idenitied

A trick to improve security to software idenitied

Security PoliciesA good way to make software more secure is to implement revisions so frequent that attackers don’t have time to figure out where the vulnerabilities are before the potential attack surface has morphed to something else.

Also, network defenders need to take advantage of the honeymoon effect, where new software goes unmolested for a period after it is issued while adversaries analyze it for flaws. With frequent revisions, software is never in place long enough to fall prey to exploits and old exploits are less likely to have an impact.

Proposed legislation will weaken data security and breach notification laws

Proposed legislation will weaken data security and breach notification laws

Security Breach Prevention

The Data Security and Breach Notification Act, approved by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, would pre-empt stronger breach notification laws in several states and would eliminate data protections of telecom account records.

The bill is weaker than the data security and breach notification standards that consumers currently enjoy under stronger state laws and existing federal law.

The legislation would require businesses across the U.S. to notify affected customers after a data breach is headed toward a vote on the floor of the House of Representatives even though the bill will actually weaken protections for consumers.
