Re: Security
That's a crazy one! I can't say it was surprising. There have been whispers about facebook's use of data for some time now.

Re: Security
So true! Actually securing systems and software takes a lot of work. Keeping things safe enough seems to be really difficult in the current climate. I don't envy the teams responsible for such projects.

Re: Security
@afwriter That's right. Companies need to be able to detect the signs before the breach actually occurs, not after. I feel companies brush security under the rug because they just don't have the properly trained staff to keep up with it.

Re: Security
@mpouraryan  I also have been a victim of hacking but luckily not on my computer. My bank card was hacked at an ATM machine during the days when people were inserting devices into the machines to collect personal data. It wasn't a pleasant thing, however, the bank handled it very well for it being the early days of hacking.

Re: Security
It is up to us--no  one else--we have to be aware--and we have to understand how to protect ourselves.    It is easier said than done especially in light of the challenges we have to deal with--including hackings (and I have been a victim multiple times)...

Re: Security
What really stinks is that it's not like security has a concrete solution. The only thing any company can do is try to stay one step ahead of the bad guys. As the article indicates it is important to remember the important of security even with all of these other exciting advancements.

Security
Security has been an issue since the Internet came into being, even before then, and, yet, somehow we still can't seem to get it right. Look at all the major retailers that have been hacked, including Target and many others. Security is also probably the top reason businesses were hesitant to move to the cloud.

Re: Security
@afwriter - I feel pretty confident that you are exactly right. Even the current news is barely registering as a blip on the radar screen of the news media. I'd be curious (via Facebook poll of course) just how many people have even heard the story, much less even care. I honestly wasn't even fully aware of the story until earlier today. Prior to, I just wasn't really surprised. And doubt I'll ever be surprised that more of our personal information is being taken from Facebook than we ever truly realized. Or maybe we always realized it and just didn't care. One of the two. Either way, I'm certain 1984 will be gradual, and we'll passively agree to the entire process.

Re: Security
As I look forward to our continued dialgoue as we bid farewell to Q1, I wanted to report on this interesting insight..and the interesting survey I hope the community will have a chance to reflect upon: 

Chertoff talks cyber risk. In part 2 of our 2-part interview, Chief Executive caught up with former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff to talk about what CEOs and boards are missing when it comes to cybersecurity.

Cyber disconnect. CEOs and their chief technology officers disagree on what the most important cybersecurity risk threatening their organizations' success is, according to a new survey.
