The growing threat of cyberattacks is a huge cause for concern. According to some of the country’s foremost intelligence experts, the U.S. may encounter a massive cyberattack on the horizon. An attack of this scale is predicted to cause damage comparable to a Category 5 hurricane, where everything from vehicles to pacemakers could be compromised. The country needs to be ready – and not just the public sector. Private businesses, regardless of size, would be taking an extreme risk if the necessary precautions are not put into place.

The literal and perceptional damage caused by security breaches can be astronomic, as we have seen from high-profile leaks at SonyEquifax and Yahoo. When developing a strategy, you have to be able to properly assess the […]

In 2018, software development saw exponential growth in areas including blockchain technology and artificial intelligence, and the New Year has the potential to bring even more change through recent developments in automation, cybersecurity and legislation.

Software development professionals have a unique opportunity to leverage these new developments this year, and the first step in doing so is learning how their industry has been impacted.

Automation is undeniably looked at as an integral part of a software developer’s workflow. From using it to avoid repeat coding to stress-testing for systems, automation holds an incredibly valuable place in a developer’s world. In fact, recent data has shown that the percentage of development teams notautomating has dropped by more than 50 percent in the last two years, and teams that fully apply continuous integration (CI) […]

The word “automation” has both sent chills down the spines of American workers and filled business owners with glee.

The debate over automation generally has individuals falling into two camps: those that fear its impact on jobs in the country, and those that say the potential for automation to increase production will only help bolster our economy. Regardless of where anyone falls in that discussion, the truth is this: automation is coming, and it’s coming fast.

Industries like retail and IT robotics stand to see billions in market increases in the near future. Also, between 39 and 73 million jobs have the potential to be automated by 2030, but less than five percent of occupations involve activities that can be “fully automated.” Further, the Wall Street Journal recently wrote that […]

No, it’s not a fait accompli; where one gives up due to the inevitability, but quite the contrary.

Are we tired of hearing about data breaches (DB) yet? Sure, this is a natural reaction as the number of DB disclosures continue to increase. Security professionals are keenly aware of the DB risks, yet there are conflicting theories about the effect of frequent DBs on consumers and their behaviors. We’ll explore a few views on what DB fatigue (DBF) is, how to move past it and the protections needed either way.

So, how much DB news is too much? When do people tune out the news and warnings of data breaches? During 2018 there were successful hacks against every sector. The ITRC is a great resource to find […]
