    Did you help your child join a cyber-crime network that spies on your company?

    Hackers finding victims in social networking sites is nothing new. We’ve been warned about increased risk to corporate data from malware attacks via social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn for years now. And yet, most companies are still more worried about what their employees might post about them on these sites than they are about the backdoors, Trojan horses and other entries into their databases that start with signing on to social...

    The Unfortunate Cookie – A Chinese Restaurant Cyber-Security Caper

    I was fascinated to read the New York Times story by Nicole Perlroth, about how hackers and cyber-spies are gaining entry to corporate databases through company third parties who have weak or no security of their own. Back in the day before it was considered politically incorrect, we used to talk about building a “Chinese Wall” to prevent access to information by those who shouldn’t be allowed to see it.  So, the part of the...

    Frozen: waiting for the next best thing

    I’ve been thinking lately about where I have so often found myself over the past 40 years- feeling frozen in place, afraid to make a decision to buy a piece of technology out of fear that as soon as I do, it will be replaced in the market by something better and cheaper. It started back in the mid-70s when I was in college and contemplating the purchase of a cassette tape player to add...

    True Detective – Lessons in Removing the Mask of Corruption

    I spent seven hours yesterday in a marathon session watching HBO’s new series, True Detective, in anticipation of the final installment. And, I must confess, this was the third time I viewed the episodes, trying to piece together more information that might let me see the true identity of the leader of a cult of masked men responsible for a raft of ritualistic killings.And yet, I have to admit that I felt no closer to...

  7. Shaun White: Halfpipe Principled Performance in Sochi

    As everyone watching the Olympics or reading any news media knows already, Shaun White decided a few days ago to drop out of the slopestyle snowboarding event in Sochi, avoiding the risk of injury that might undermine achievement of his top priority goal – a record-setting win in the halfpipe competition. He’s been getting some flack for that decision, mostly from younger slopestyle competitors who felt that if he had made the choice earlier, maybe...

    “Do we really need a corporate code of conduct?”When’s the last time you heard this question asked in your company, if ever?  And do you react with surprise or even a bit of annoyance as you read it here, thinking it’s stupid to even ask such a thing in 2014?Perhaps it is. Whether your company has established a code of conduct because it faced a legal requirement to have one, or to satisfy stakeholder demands,...
