Re: Digital transformation
Exactly. Incidents like those help companies do reality checks.No matter how big or small the company is.

Re: Digital transformation
Which is good in a way. I think it's good for even a company as big as Apple to realize that they aren't untouchable and working and devleoping on their security is still heavily important.

Re: Digital transformation
Yes, we witnessed in latest episode with Apple, where a company was able to unlock and get data from iPhone. That made Apple to check their measures much more intensly.

Re: Digital transformation
Eaxctly! And it worries me. In todays world it's so easy to hack and get into other peoples private accounts. Especially if they're good with computers.

Re: Digital transformation
You are right @dlr5288.

Security has alway been playing an important role. Now it has become even more key factor as we are into the era of digitalization and e-world. Hence we are now more prone to be attacked than ever before. Certainly more and more focus is going into security all across. But not to forget hacking industry is also evolving at the same rate. And enterprise world is tirelessly working to keep up the challenge.

Joe, as we all know, the blood-sniffing scenario is all too probable, but standing back from the situation a little and pretending to be fair (or at least fairer than a regulator with a scalp quota) it looks to me like security is one of those areas where everyone talks about it because it's important, but what can be done about it boils down to:

1) in large areas, nothing yet. We're making doors faster than we can invent locks.

2) in other large areas, just keeping common-sense, prosaic precautions in place to discourage casual exploitation (you may have to put up with some assaults by Evil Genius Giant Hacking Cooperatives but you don't want Bubba down at the corner store to be able to hack your system from his phone).

3)and in a third large area, there's a lot of uncertainty about how to do anything genuinely proactive, the penalties for committing to the wrong solution are high, and the benefits of committing to the right one are speculative.

So it's a very natural area for human beings to do what they do best: sit down, chatter, pretend to know more than they do, scare each other, repeat each other, try things at random. Not because the people involved are bad, incompetent, or lazy, but because it's really about all anyone can do.

Re: 56%
Joe, Michelle,

I don't think it's even as complex as handing the problem off to other people. Security problems are so intrinsic to communications that you can almost always cite them in any situation, and they come to mind automatically. Probably the last time it was a surprising insight was when someone said, "Hey, wait, what if a competing merchant pays the messenger to let him read this clay tablet? What if a robber follows the messenger to find out where the warehouse is? What if someone substitutes a clay tablet marked paid in full to take our wheat, and a fake purchase order to take our gold?"

@Michelle: Indeed, it's not like THEY'LL be fired over it!

Until, of course, they are...when a major breach happens and the regulators are sniffing around for blood, compelling the board of directors to offer up a sacrifice.
