The Target Credit Card hack highlights this problem. Alerts were made, lights did adobe flash. The problem was that so many lights flashed and so many alarms normally proceeded to go off that people didn’t learn how to separate the important from the noise. That’s where many complicated analytics techniques have historically failed: they’ve not shown people how to proceed. If you need a great example of IT’s normal approach to this problem then the ethernet port is a good example. Exactly, what does the color yellowish mean normally?
Its a warning color, so something that flashes yellow would be bad right? Doesn’t really seem sensible, would it? Its not just a natural way to notify. There are good technical reasons to take action that way (its easier technically) but that doesn’t actually help people. With security this issue becomes amplified and is often made worse through centralizing reactions to a security team that understands security but doesn’t know the business context. The task therefore is to categorize the kind of issue and have different mechanisms for each one. Its important when looking at risks around Big Data to understand what group a risk falls into which in turn indicates the proper way to alert.
It is also important to identify that as information becomes available an occurrence may escalate between organizations. So let us take a good example. A router indicates that it’s receiving strange external traffic. This is an IT functions problem and it needs to be managed by the group in IT or which deals with router traffic. Then the Big Data security-recognition algorithms link that router concern to the access of sales information from the CRM system. This increases the problem to the LoB level, it’s now a business challenge and the question becomes a business decision about how to cut or limit access.
The Sales Director might want to cut off all access to the CRM system rather than risk dropping the information, or may consider it to be always a small business risk when prearranged against closing the current quarter. The point is that the information is provided in a business framework, highlighting the information at risk so a business decision can be taken.
- Hubs as conceptual entities
- Capability to handle lots of priorities
- 999 cars out of 10 have a cover over their steering wheel
- “Do not get caught with your guard off: it could be disarming.”
Do they start shedding and patching, and do they alert law enforcement? The true point here though is that it requires to be systematic how it’s highlighted and escalated, it can’t all go through a central team. The CRO needs to be automatically informed when the chance is sufficient, but only to be informed then. If it’s a significant IT risk then it’s the work of the CISO to inform the CRO, not for every one risk to be highlighted to the CRO as if they have to deal with them.
If you answer “Yes, Yes, No” then you’ve found the right level and then need to focus on the system. If it’s “Yes, Yes, Yes” then you are actually cluttering if you show them everything that every person in their reporting tree handles as part of their job. In conditions of the system it’s important to believe on that “flashing yellow light” on the Ethernet port. If something is ok then “Green is good”, if it’s an administrative issue (patch level on the router) then it requires to be flagged in to the tasks to be done. If it is a live and active issue it needs to come front and middle. In conditions of your energy when securing Big Data you ought to be putting more effort into how you react than on nearly every other stage in the chain. If you get the last part wrong then you lose all the value of the previous phases.
The particulars of the top depends mainly on the average person office dress code (or the average person themselves), but a nice fitted, low, and/or ironed blouse or button-down is always appropriate. Make an effort to keep brand logos to the very least. While the options are endless nearly, clothing brands like Ann Taylor (ANN), Banana Republic (GPS – Gets Report), and Mango carry most of the staple pieces you will need for your workplace wardrobe (think personalized pants, blazers, blouses, pumps).
Is Jeans Business Casual? The short answer is, well, no. You’re probably better off not taking a chance and just putting on khakis or a dressier pant. But given the vast array of jobs, intensifying offices, and corporate and business cultures, denims are up for issue even. As a general rule, it is far safer to err on the side of professionalism and go without the jeans.
However, many offices do enable jeans, so it is important to check on with your company’s dress code beforehand. If you are lucky to have a more informal workplace that allows for jeans enough, try to adhere to dark-wash, tailored denims. Avoid skinny jeans with rips, openings, prints and embroidery, or light clean. Business Casual vs. Business Professional: What’s the Difference?
