  1. This is a GREAT article, despite the dismay of breaches and data insecurities, in that it keeps one of my pet concerns front and center: Security. Everyone needs to be a mini-Security Officer today. Most individuals and organizations enjoy Security largely as a matter of luck. For some free insight check out the blog, “The Business-Technology Weave” – you can Google to it. Anyone else here reading I.T. WARS? I had to read parts of this book as part of my employee orientation at a new job. The book talks about a whole new culture as being necessary – an eCulture – for a true understanding of security, being that most identity/data breaches are due to simple human errors. It has great chapters on security, as well as risk, content management, project management, acceptable use, various plans and policies, and so on. “In the realm of risk, unmanaged possibilities become probabilities.” Keep “security” front and center! Great stuff.
