    A Focus on Refresh

    In this post, I concentrate on approaches and tactics to refresh aspects of a computing portfolio. In the first post in this series, I asked, “Is there a model that will help us analyze and begin to address difficult obstacles regarding needed change, expansion of method or complexity?” The model I proposed involved three Rs: renew, refresh and rework. Last week , we explored renew, now let’s consider refresh using an example featuring Java.

    IT Security Standards

    This week, I continue the computer security topic with a discussion of security standards used by security professionals. An example is ISO/IEC 27001, a standard that specifies a management system that is intended to bring information security under explicit management control.

    IT Security People

    This week, I continue the computer security topic with a look at what “security people” do on a day-to-day basis. So far, I have discussed hardware and software, and now I want to explore the human aspects of security and security administration. Last week, I wrote about identity and access management products, endpoint security and messaging security programs like secure email gateways. Security specialists install and maintain products in these categories but the job of security specialist is bigger than that.

Companies have to buy the research from IDC to see the latest study but often a slightly older version of the document is available from companies that have licensed it for product marketing purposes.

    This week, I continue the computer security topic with a focus on computer security hardware. Many of us think about security with primarily a software focus. It seems to us that protecting and hacking is mainly about understanding and using software.
