Cybersecurity in the “When-Not-If” Era by Jean-Christophe Gaillard

The “When-Not-If” paradigm around cyber-attacks is changing the deal completely around cybersecurity.

Many large organisations now assume that breaches are simply inevitable, due to the inherent complexity of their business models and the multiplication of attack surfaces and attack vectors which comes with it.

Libra coin and what it means

Technology is constantly improving in the world around us, and cryptocurrencies are no different.

The latest cryptocurrency to be announced and met with controversy and a media lash back is Libra, Facebook's new cryptocurrency. But cryptocurrencies could be the way forward...what if we could make money truly global and secure?

Libra caused enormous backlash for a number of reasons, but the main arguments were that it was backed and developed by Facebook, and that it would replace money completley (which cannot happen with the way our economies and countries are built).

Machine Learning - The brain of Digital Transformation by Sandeep Raut

We are all familiar with machine learning in our everyday lives. Both Amazon and Netflix use machine learning to learn our preferences and provide better shopping and movie experience.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has stormed the world today. It is an umbrella term that includes multiple technologies, such as machine learning, deep learning, and computer vision, natural language processing (NLP), machine reasoning, and strong AI.

Liberate LIBRA of the currency war, and let it find its meaningful place as a STO by Prasoon Mukherjee

Calvin Coolidge said, "Doubters do not achieve, sceptics do not contribute, and cynics do not create". At the outset let me truthfully confess that I am neither of the three on this subject. On the contrary, I truly believe that we are changing the world in the way that business is conducted, and transactions are processed, “one blockchain at a time", and as we use this technology true to its potential, this world will turn into a better place for everyone.

Digital Transformation impacting Customer Journey by Sandeep Raut

Digital Transformation is omnipresent. It has already been changing our behaviour as human beings.

More than ever, Customer expectations matter.  Don't like that app that you just downloaded?  You can give it a bad review.  No response from the developers means lost customers, or worse, going out of business. Such a bad customer experience posted on Twitter, Facebook and various other social media channels can be very detrimental to your brand.

The Two Factors Killing GRC Practices by Jean-Christophe Gaillard

Many CISOs complain of communication problems with their business. They are not being listened to. They are not getting the budget they think they should get. They feel their business prioritises against security too often.

It has been a recurring theme amongst information security professionals for the best part of the last 15 years, and it is rooted in a wide range of factors, amongst which the profile of the CISO is often a dominant limitation.

Difference between Digitization and Digital Transformation by Sandeep Raut

I have seen many businesses saying they have embarked on digital transformation while in reality, they have just digitized some of their processes.

There is confusion over the two terms, Digitization &Digital Transformation.

 

The two terms are often used interchangeably when their actual meanings are totally different. In fact, they point to two very different ways of responding to disruptive technology.

Let me talk about Digitization: It is doing the same things, differently.

Standalone Digital Strategy? Culture Strategy? So what's in your Business Strategy? by Karen Walker

Organisations creating numerous standalone strategies supporting value realisation, is as counterproductive as musicians in a conductor-less orchestra, only having their individual sheet music.

Do organisations need a Digital Strategy?

In Don’t Draft a Digital Strategy Just Because Everyone Else IsKen Favaro argues that

How to succeed in your career in tech: a female perspective by Nadine Thomson

I recently chaired a panel interviewing inspiring women from different countries and backgrounds who have become recognised technology leaders in their fields. There was a lot of collective wisdom about how these women had navigated their careers and succeeded in becoming technology leaders. Here are three highlights from our conversation with the talented Sabah Carter, CIO of News Corp, Judith van de Pas, CIO of Shell Retail and May Yap, Global CIO of Jabil.

Digital Transformation Is More About Emotion Than Technology by Gareth Baxendale

Have you ever said a word so many times it begins to sound a bit weird? It’s known as ‘semantic satiation’ and happens when the person saying the word suddenly loses all sense of its meaning. It’s a peculiar phenomenon and one that happens, I believe, to the word ‘Digital’ for so many reasons.

Your organisation will likely have a digital transformation strategy in place and backed up by a digital leadership team and even a digital programme to make it all happen. ‘But’, you may wonder, ‘what is this ‘Digital’ thing and why does it require transformation’?
