Does DevOps Plus Open Source Equal Security?

There is a cost to prioritizing speed over software quality.
Today’s CIO is in a tough spot. As one of the fastest-growing professions, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, we are seeing more newly promoted CIOs enter the job market than ever before. In addition to this flood of fresh CIOs who have limited experience managing increasingly complex IT issues, we have CEOs and boards putting more pressure on IT organizations to deliver updates faster while keeping software agile and guaranteeing software security to prevent damaging outages, as we saw in the case of Equifax.

Het gevolg van deze slimmere technologieën is dat bedrijven steeds meer veranderen in softwarebedrijven.

Smartphones and the abdication of parental responsibility

Like most kids who have recently been given their first cellphones, Andrea’s 12-year-old daughter is pretty nonchalant about the whole thing. When asked what she likes best about her new iPhone, she shrugs. "Feeling responsible," she says. Besides, since her friends mostly interact over Snapchat and Instagram, the phone is a crucial way to keep in touch.

Think Startups Can’t Innovate in a Crowded Sector? Look How This One is Succeeding in Mobile

A saturated market sector or crowded niche is no reason to assume you can’t innovate your way to top-dog position. Rather than think you can’t possibly dethrone current market leaders, double-down on creative marketing, talent acquisition, customer satisfaction, and internal product building. One such company innovating their way to king-of-the-castle positioning is NYC-based Button, who have built a proprietary technology that gives brands a scalable approach to mobile partnerships, facilitating consumer discovery and commerce.

Bitcoin starts a new year by tumbling, first time since 2015

Bitcoin is already having a bad year. For the first time since 2015, the cryptocurrency began a new year by tumbling, extending its slide from a record $US19,511 reached on December 18. The virtual coin traded at $US13,150 as of 12.58pm in New York, down 8.1 per cent from Friday, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That’s also a fall from the $US14,156 it hit on Sunday, according to coinmarketcap.com, which tracks daily prices.

A look inside the fraught world of hospital cybersecurity

What happens when hackers target hospitals for money and patient information?
It happened in May this year, when the notorious software exploit WannaCry wiggled its way into the United Kingdom’s National Health Service computer network. The breach ultimately saw 16 hospitals shut down throughout the UK until things could be normalized. Hospital employees trying to use their computers during this time were unable to do anything useful. Instead, they were prompted to liberate their systems by sending $300 worth of Bitcoin to the anonymous attackers.
