A collection of items for strategists and problems-solvers who aim to be well-informed about global affairs and perspectives; capable of developing and evaluating new knowledge; generating and analyzing courses of action; and who are interested in expressing clearly reasoned opinions and communicating effectively in writing, oral presentation, and visual display.
Now that your company has an idea of what Competitive Intelligence is used for, how can you improve the strategic and tactical aspects of CI functions? In this session, information professionals will learn practical, advanced techniques for supporting CI projects through a life or product cycle as well as daily operations. Plenty of time will be devoted to Q & A with Zena Applebaum, Director of Competitive Intelligence at Bennett-Jones LLP, and Michel Bernaiche, Director of Program Development at Aurora WD
Exposure to threats, hazards and risks leads to vulnerabilities that an organization must deal with. Commonly these are addressed via a mitigation process. Once mitigation is accomplished, often times the organization feels that the risk, threat, hazard does not need to be revisited. However, as a result of the mitigation efforts on the part of the organization, the risks, threats, hazards reconfigure and re-emerge in a different form. In order for mitigation to be successful it has to be a constant and ongoing process that produces a resilience to the negative effects of risks, threats and hazards that are realized. We can structure a matrix that depicts the three levels of mitigation and four clusters of exposure from risks, threats and hazards

It seems to be a foregone conclusion that 2014 was not an exciting year in visualization. When we recorded the Data Stories episode looking back at 2014 last week (to be released soon), everybody started out with a bit of a downer.
In our sixth annual report, we outline eight trends that could potentially disrupt the way businesses engage their customers, how work gets done, and how markets and industries evolve. Read about the trends below, download the full report, and explore our interactive tablet app.
Oversharing on Facebook is posing a unique challenge for the CIA’s recruitment of future spies. Every year, the agency has to drop five or six stellar candidates because of things they said on social media networks like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, the CIA’s top recruiter said in an exclusive interview with CNNMoney. That’s a tiny fraction of the 20,000 applicants who make it into the final phases of the interview process. But the CIA has rescinded job offers because of their social media posts.
As the complexity and diversity of devices, platforms and modes of interaction advance, so do the associated risks from malicious individuals, criminal organisations and states that wish to exploit technology for their own purposes. Below, Michael Fimin, CEO at Netwrix, provides his major observations of IT security trends and the most crucial areas to keep watch over in 2015:
Cloud Many individuals and enterprises are already using cloud technologies to store sensitive information and perform business critical tasks. In response to security concerns, cloud technologies will continue to develop in 2015, focusing on improved data encryption; the ability to view audit trails for configuration management and secure access of data; and the development of security brokers for cloud access, allowing for user access control as a security enforcement point between a user and cloud service provider.
Mobile As the adoption and standardisation of a few select mobile OS platforms grows, the opportunity for attack also increases. We can expect to see further growth in smartphone malware, increases in mobile phishing attacks and fake apps making their way into app stores. Targeted attacks on mobile payment technologies can also be expected. In response, 2015 will see various solutions introduced to improve mobile protection, including the development of patch management across multiple devices and platforms, the blocking of apps from unknown sources and anti-malware protection.
Software defined data centre ’Software defined’ usually refers to the decoupling and abstracting of infrastructure elements followed by a centralised control. Software defined networking (SDN) and software defined storage (SDS) are clearly trending and we can expect this to expand in 2015. But while these modular software defined infrastructures improve operational efficiency, they also create new security risks. In particular, centralised controllers can become a single point of attack. While the adoption of this approach is not widespread enough to become a common target for attacks, as more companies run SDN and SDS pilots in 2015, we expect their security concerns will be raised. This will result in more of a focus on security from manufacturers, as well as new solutions from third party vendors.
Internet of things The Internet of things (IoT) universe is expanding with a growing diversity of devices connecting to the network and/or holding sensitive data - from smart TVs and Wi-Fi-connected light bulbs to complex industrial operational technology systems.
With the IoT likely to play a more significant role in 2015 and beyond, devices and systems require proper management, as well as security policies and provisions. While the IoT security ecosystem has not yet developed, we do not expect attacks on the IoT to become widespread in 2015.
Most attacks are likely to be ’whitehat’ hacks to report vulnerabilities and proof of concept exploits. That being said, sophisticated targeted attacks may go beyond traditional networks and PCs.
Next generation security platforms In 2015 and beyond, we can expect to see more vendors in the information security industry talking about integration, security analytics and the leveraging of big data. Security analytics platforms have to take into account more internal data sources as well as the external feeds, such as online reputation services and third party threat intelligence feeds. The role of context and risk assessment will also become more important. The focus of defence systems becomes more about minimising attack surfaces, isolating and segmenting the infrastructure to reduce potential damage and identifying the most business critical components to protect.
Looking back at previous years, new security challenges will continue to arise, so IT professionals should be armed with mission critical information and be prepared to defend against them.
