You just woke up in cold sweat because you realized that you never bought holiday gifts for your cousins who love regulations, your forgetful uncle Jerry, your quick-minded aunt, your tech-savvy nieces and nephews, and of course something for you. Now shipping deadlines have passed, store shelves are barren, and inflation has made some of those must-have items 3x what they should cost. And forget about wrapping up those gifts, as there’s hardly any time left before Santa arrives.
In the IT security world, there’ve been a lot of sleepless nights recently due to a newly discovered security vulnerability that lets attackers who are not even very technically sophisticated, remotely inject code on a computer and take over control of it. This is due to a mishap in a very popular Apache Java program logging component, now nicknamed “Log4j” (techies can read more here).
Registered Encryption, The Must-Have Gift of 2021
I’m not telling you anything new when I say that this holiday season is a bit unique—maybe not as unique (or uniquely bad) as last year, but certainly a time without precedent in my memory.

From Humble Beginnings, Early Innovators Set the Stage for Today’s CDOs
We want to recognize those IT staffers who started with humble beginnings – sometimes as the company IT or process operations guru gifted with a silver tongue for explaining the technically complex, business simply. These are the heroes that today’s Chief Digital Officers (CDOs) should recognize — and we are looking forward to recognizing these folks ourselves, for identifying early on, the art of the possible with technology. They showcased how newly emerging technology, if employed in the right ways, could truly transform their business operations — one process at a time.
Are We Still in an Interconnected World? Apple’s Big Sur Sure Made Us Aware
Are we still living in an interconnected world? There is now talk of more isolation — that is unless you have your COVID immunity passport (as we discussed in our article “The “New” Haves and Have Nots”).

The Science Behind the Effectiveness Biden’s Eye Contact in Debate

What is “Legal Proof”? Optimize! Panelists Share a Decade of Use in Courts
