Offsetting Asymmetry With Automation

In the security world, there is a truism that defense is harder than offense because it’s an asymmetric playing field. The bad guys need only find one path into an environment — one place where everything hasn’t been done perfectly — while those charged with securing that environment need to protect against intrusions everywhere. The asymmetry is apparent in other respects as well. For example, a large percentage of a company’s staff members may go home at night, but attackers can operate from wherever, whenever.

The Eve of the Self-Driving Revolution

A decade ago, there wasn’t much talk about self-driving cars or autonomous-cars, but Toyota and Lexus were setting the stage with their self-parking cars. They aired television commercials showing how cars magically parallel-parked themselves. At the time, it seemed amazing, but that was nothing compared to what’s coming next. The self-parking revolution that spread throughout the automotive industry over the last decade is now expanding. There is more technology in cars today than ever before.

'Invisible' Technologies: What You Can't See Can Hurt You

There are times when it seems like technology can work almost too well. Now, if working too well sounds to you like an impossibility — along the lines of being too rich or too good looking — reflect that there’s more to a technology than end-user experience. In addition to the experience of using the technology, there are other considerations that play a role: things like maintenance, operations and ongoing support. While these considerations are less directly visible to the enterprise end-user, they are nevertheless important.

Consumers Gain More Power to Seek Data Breach Damages

There are no good outcomes of an electronic data system breach. At best, companies dealing with e-commerce technologies face the formidable task and the resulting cost of repairs. In addition having to fix information technology systems, companies suffering breaches may be increasingly vulnerable to legal action taken by customers whose personal data was affected. A federal appeals court decision handed down earlier this month underscores the potential legal leverage available to consumers whose electronic records are hacked.

What Will Rise From Uber's Ashes?

There has been quite a bit of churn in the waters around Uber during the last few years. Now that founder Travis Kalanick is no longer CEO, what does the future look like for the company, workers, drivers, investors and customers? Will Uber continue to grow and lead, or has it seen its best days? Most people connected to the company probably would say the same thing: They want calm but rapid growth. There is now a good possibility for growth if they get the right CEO and right strategy. However, Uber has been like two different companies in recent years.
