In today’s self-service, on demand economy, 24x7 technology reliance has become a given.Individuals across businesses work flexibly and remotely, including at weekends. Yet what happens when the vital piece of kit to support that work – the tablet, phone or laptop – fails? Typically, a wait of 2.9 days for a replacement. How does that fit in with a consumer world offering immediate click and collect and delivery via drones?This model is outdated and inadequate. Why can’t individuals get click & collect access to essential equipment 24x7? Why are desk-side support organisations not leveraging the proven technologies now available, from smart lockers to remote laptop build, to provide users with fast access to a laptop configured with their own passwords and data?Anthony Lamoureux, Director of Velocity Smart Technology, explores how the integration of smart locker technology to IT Service Management (ITSM) Applications is set to provide users with fast, … [Read more...] about Self-service click and collect is the future of IT support
Supported by Energy & Environment By CLIFFORD KRAUSSAPRIL 4, 2018 Continue reading the main story Share This Page Continue reading the main story HOUSTON — A cyberattack on a shared data network forced four of the nation’s natural-gas pipeline operators to temporarily shut down computer communications with their customers over the last week.No gas service was interrupted, the companies said, and the interruption of customer transactions was merely a precaution. It was unclear whether any customer data was stolen.The attack highlighted the potential vulnerability of the nation’s energy system, cyberexperts say. Beyond consumer and business data — energy companies possess much proprietary information about their holdings, trading strategies and exploration and production technologies — the increasing dependence of pipeline infrastructure on digital systems makes them a particularly ripe target. Control valves, pressure monitors and other … [Read more...] about Cyberattack Shows Vulnerability of Gas Pipeline Network
In recent times, cyber security disasters have been no stranger to big corporate businesses and public organisations, 2017 was rife with them. WannaCry brought many organisations across Europe to a standstill, including the UK’s National Health Service, causing huge uproar and external scrutiny. Shortly thereafter, the Equifax data breach occurred, a security breach that exposed the personal data of 143 million people, was the result of no more than a vulnerability in a web-application. At the heart of these attacks were exploits simply caused by outdated software.Thinking about the devastating simplicity of these cyberattacks, there are five key things that we can take away:1. The attacks caused major financial damage to the businesses affected and their customers.2. The aftermath of the disasters ruined reputations and brought negative worldwide attention down on those involved.3. These attacks, while destructive, were not in any way sophisticated, the attackers targeted … [Read more...] about Windows as a Service: A security disaster waiting to happen?
Until a few months ago, it was thought that the issue of net neutrality had been definitively settled by the ruling of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 2015; however, that all changed with the new Trump administration and statements by the new FCC chairman - just reappointed for 4 years by the US Senate - who called the net neutrality rules a "mistake."The FCC has since launched a process to challenge net neutrality; a move that some web users and tech companies view as a frontal attack on a basic guiding principle of the Internet. There was a day of protest from the main digital platforms and many other companies. For many people, the net neutrality principle and the unrestricted flow of data fuels innovation. Think YouTube, Netflix and Spotify. Changing the rules might not only hinder the next great digital native company, but an entire range of traditional companies navigating their digital transformation. Digital Transformation driven by innovationThere is broad … [Read more...] about Net Neutrality: Why it’s Vital for Digital Transformation
If you're reading this, you need to see "The Cleaners". It's an incisive new documentary that shines a light on the most uncomfortable questions about social media and the online age. You might want to look away. But, as the film shows, that's a big part of the problem. This unflinching documentary, directed by first-timers Moritz Riesewieck and Hans Block, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this month. In a quiet year for movie deals at the festival, "The Cleaners" hasn't yet been picked up for distribution by movie theatres or streaming services. But someone needs to get their chequebook, because this searingly relevant film is essential viewing. The "cleaners" of the title are the internet's content moderators: the men and women employed to analyse your videos, photos and social media posts and decide if they're offensive or A-OK. In the past few years, the rise of fake news, social media bubbles and increasingly polarised discourse around the world have led … [Read more...] about Vital documentary ‘The Cleaners’ dishes dirt on social media
For many in enterprise IT, internet of things (IoT) initiatives are no longer a goal, but quite simply a reality. By the close of this year, Gartner predicts the number of connected items gathering data across the globe will reach a staggering 8.4 billion, rising by a third on the previous year’s forecast. Whilst rapid consumer adoption represents a large proportion of that figure, businesses are on pace to employ 3.1 billion connected things in 2017 alone, with some of the most compelling use cases of this technology coming to light within the industrial sectors. IoT’s role in business transformation The information collected by networks of connected devices has proven to be so valuable, it has become an essential component in helping companies to gain a deeper understanding of their own business and informing their strategies. In the case of mining, autonomous haul trucks have worked to maximise uptime, resulting higher productivity levels within … [Read more...] about Is your enterprise network ready for the IoT revolution?
