COVID-19 Cybersecurity attacks

Cybersecurity technologies to identify, protect, detect, respond and recover are extremely important, but not sufficient. HumanOS upgrade is required to safely use the Internet and It is not only about training and awareness. It is about the way users must behave online and IT community must openly acknowledge system vulnerabilities. Humans are the weakest and strongest links in Cybersecurity.

2020 Focus: The People

Successful IT executives focus on the people. Leaders need to become more of a trusted advisor. It's important for IT executives to partner with UX, HR and employee experience teams to aid with the shift in workforce dynamics, like emerging technologies or AI interactions.

Takeaways

  • IT executives need to focus on software user

Siemens Mobility and the Onboarding of an IT Offshoring Centre During Covid 19

In March COVID-19 forced the team of Siemens Mobility IT to decide if they go ahead ramping up their offshore Technology Hub in India fully virtual or if they stop - they decided to go for it!

Key Take-away:

The main success factor for the virtual ramp-up was to give the people the feeling of belonging and being part of the global organization. In addition to this transparent and continuous communication as well as virtual team building in various ways play a key role. The first step to create this feeling is a virtual onboarding week, during which the newcomers are welcomed with a CIO keynote, get to know the organization and learn what their team's function is. The team ensures that they understand the big picture!

Data 2020, Fueling AI

This year will offer a wake-up call for many, as the overall cost of getting data wrong will be realized. Chief Data and Analytics Officers (CDAOs) and CIOs focusing on AI will rest assured knowing their teams have what they need when it comes to data. One of the major obstacles is sourcing data from a complex portfolio of applications and convincing gatekeepers to say yes. Effectively using intelligent automation will require compelling efforts in data cleansing, integration, and management that IT will need to support. Correcting previous data issues in legacy systems can be a considerable hurdle to leap, especially for larger enterprises. Top organizations will increase, and possibly double, their data strategy budget. 

Takeaways 

  • Mishandling data comes at a huge financial cost 
  • AI offers more predictable means of safeguarding data 
  • IT teams will need to be effective at cleaning and organizing data

Thought Leadership

Becoming More Decentralized

Today, increased centralization has put the power and trust into the hands of the few big players. This, of course, raises many security concerns. The risk of disruptions and undesirable outcomes increases as centralization opens the door to exclusive possession or control of commodities and services. As a result, technologies like Blockchain implemented to create decentralized alternatives as they move computing resources away from centralized servers. 


Takeaways: 

  • Evaluating the risks of centralization on availability, confidentiality and resiliency 
  • Exploring decentralized technologies like Blockchain and edge computing that offer visibility as well as enhanced security for your organization
  • Understand the fact or fictionalization of developing AI strategies and the cause for concern for decentralized AI models

Executive Boardroom

The Internet of Things (IoT) Meets the Internet of Behaviors (IoB)

We are approaching a point where individual activities tracked by IoT devices and systems will be recorded digitally by an ?Internet of Behaviour? (IoB) to influence benefits and service eligibility for people across the world. The idea behind IoB is to be able to digitally link a person with their actions. For example, connecting your identity by way of facial recognition with an activity such as renting a car will be tracked digitally. In addition, IoB will also be used to influence specific behaviours. For example, Progressive's Snapshot and Allstate's Drivewise offerings monitor and record a driver's behaviours and in turn offer higher or lower rates based upon those behaviours. However, there have been concerns raised over the ethical implications of spreading this technology to social services (i.e. schools or assisting living) attempting to compensate or discipline certain behaviours. 

Takeaways 

  • The internet of behaviours is a digital replication of consumers' actions 
  • Facial recognition software will be used for everyday verification 
  • There are many concerns regarding the ethics of IoB, are they valid? 

Executive Boardroom

The Expansion of Blockchain

Blockchain technologies are being used today by organizations across all industries around the world. AIG has deployed blockchain technologies as a means of saving costs and increasing transparency, while De Beers is using it to track the importation and sale of diamonds. Next on the list: content authentication. Outside of legitimate news, technology is being used to generate believable fake audio and video. Fake news has been around forever, but the rise of social media has brought forth social media bots that have greatly accelerated the rate at which fake news is spread. Organizations and governments can use blockchain technology to authenticate content and counter against deep fake technology. By doing so, an unchangeable and shared record of content is created that is viewable to consumers. 

Takeaways 

  • Blockchain technology has countless applications 
  • Can blockchain be deployed to combat deep fake video and audio content? 
  • Demystify blockchain and how to implement it
