IT World Canada
Big data presents a lot of potential for organizations of all sizes. But the head of the Ontario division of the Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS) says any work with big data needs to be done with data security in mind.

July CIPS Volunteer of the Month: Ian McLeod, I.S.P., ITCP
CIPS
What value has your involvement with CIPS provided? In my early career, I sat next to a fellow DPMA member, who told me to get involved, as I would get out what I put into any organization. I continue to believe this to be true, for professional and personal improvement. I have an extensive network of contacts and colleagues, built up over many years. Attendance at CIPS events and active participation as a member and board volunteer continue to enhance and develop my contacts, as well as staying current in the ever-changing field of IT.

IT professionals should take a lesson from the digital camera industry about how technology can impact the public. I recently attended a class to learn about my new Android phone. As part of the instruction I took a photo of one of the women teaching the class using my nifty "cartoon" feature. She saw the photo after I took it, and didn’t request that I delete it. Can I now post it as part of this blog?
