IT World Canada
Technology isn't the only solution to the online threats we face

Over 90 per cent of networks are compromised and this can happen in less than 20 minutes when exposed to the Internet. Mobile is the focal point of this trend. With embedded computing, the Internet of Things forming the planetary nervous system, a total disruption or failure is possible.

Imagine the global economy of 77 trillion dollars dropping to under 10 trillion. Compounding this are the growing privacy breaches and in the wake of HeartBleed, what other vulnerabilities are lurking?

Help CIPS Support Professionalism and Ethics in I.T.
CIPS
In the wake of HeartBleed and the numerous recent privacy breaches that have created growing concerns, the need for professionalism and ethics in IT has never been higher.

We live in a highly connected world where technology has become the central nervous system of our modern society. Technology has changed our world for the better, but technology also has fantastic potential for misuse as far too regularly witnessed. Technology professionals and future business leaders must therefore actively contribute and commit to ethical conduct regarding the data, systems, and IP they influence.

IT World Canada
I advise and speak at economic forums, the biannual World Computer Congress and World CIO Forums and consistently hear that paying attention to foreign markets is a priority for IT executives and CEOs.
