Innovation & Growth

[Posted on Behalf of Subbu Iyer, Founder and chief Designer Hreemm]

That probably worked when the rate of innovation and the expectations of growth were spaced incrementally. That equation cannot work when the socio-economic demand is exponential both in terms of time and…

A recent McKinsey survey tells us that damaging cyberattacks and an onslaught of suspicious digital communications have made cybersecurity a top concern of the overwhelming majority of responding board members and business leaders.

How CISOs Build Their Road Map

[Posted on behalf of Gary Hayslip,  CISO Softbank Investment advisor ]

 
Recently, I addressed a group of security professionals, and our discussion was on how CISOs develop their strategy. I found many in the audience had no idea how security executives develop strategy, nor were they comfortable that strategic plans could be changed or quickly discarded.



As I sit in an airplane flying to London, I am thinking about my answers that evening.…

For sure, those few organizations adopting deception tools are struggling with this challenge. Naturally, there is no “deception budget” at…

Regardless whether you’re creating and selling software or you’re just using it to run your daily operation, you are an IT company. Show me a business which doesn’t require technology as an essential element of its strategy and I’ll show you what you’re missing.

Work-Life Balance is NOT what you need

[Posted on Behalf of Archie Jackson,  Senior Director and Head of IT & IS, Incedo Inc]
