If You're Not Proud, You're Not Done | #LEARNing2LEARN #PracTICE 

If You're Not Proud, You're Not Done | #LEARNing2LEARN #PracTICE  | Science, Technology & Modern Society | Scoop.it
If you don’t put your heart into your activities, if you hand in incomplete work as finished, if you don’t do your best every time you start something, then you’re doing yourself a tremendous disservice. The truth is, if you’re not proud of what you do, you’re not done. This doesn’t mean that you have to win the race, secure every promotion, or be named Parent of the Year, but at least you’ll know, in your heart, that you’ve done your best.

What Makes People Proud?

There are many things that make us proud — getting a promotion, making a difference in someone’s life, buying a dream house, being recognized as the best in a particular line of work, knowing that you’re raising your kids to be well-adjusted human beings, being viewed as a wonderful role model, or overcoming a serious challenge in life — to name just a few. These accomplishments are especially meaningful when they’re the result of hard work, perseverance, and knowing that you’ve done your best.

How Kids Learn Resilience

How Kids Learn Resilience | Science, Technology & Modern Society | Scoop.it
In recent years, the idea that educators should be teaching kids qualities like grit and self-control has caught on. Successful strategies, though, are hard to come by.
Rose Judd-Murray's insight:
Farrington has distilled this voluminous mind-set research into four key beliefs that, when embraced by students, seem to contribute most significantly to their tendency to persevere in the classroom:
1. I belong in this academic community.
2. My ability and competence grow with my effort.
3. I can succeed at this.
4. This work has value for me.

60% of cyber attacks are inside jobs

60% of cyber attacks are inside jobs | Science, Technology & Modern Society | Scoop.it

Companies across all industries are experiencing major cyber attacks every year. There's been 53 million online security-related events in 2015 alone,according to a report by IBM.

 

The bigger problem is that most of these attacks are initiated by "insiders," such as employees, business partners, or third party contractors. This chart from Statista, based on data from the IBM report, shows that 60% of all cyber attacks in 2015 were an inside job, with 44.5% of them designed by "malicious insiders."

 

The good news is that 15.5% of the insider attacks were done inadvertently last year, meaning that someone at the company mistakenly allowed an attacker access to the network. That figure has dropped from the previous year, which suggests companies are doing a better job educating and communicating how insiders could help reduce cyber crime.

Farid Mheir's curator insight, June 9, 2016 1:13 PM

Report by IBM indicate that most cyber attacks come from insiders - employees or resources related to the company. The IBM reports also present insight by industry - retail finance, etc.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Security remains a key topic in digital transformations. We often look for external threats from competitors or hackers in shady countries but it appears that people closest to you carry the bulk of the attacks. 

 

Education, training, governance are all ways to ensure that digital systems and information will be protected from those attacks.
