Is your website secure? Your company’s network? Your bank account?
Are they ‘blockchain secure’?
I think that sentiment could play strongly in the market as this now infamous tech reveals its capabilities.
Despite the cryptocurrency craze that continues to showcase the technology, I can’t help but come back to cybersecurity as its enduring potential benefit. And that makes sense, the two go hand-and-hand, if your breakout use case is digital cash, it clearly has to be secure. But the opportunity is so much larger than protecting the authenticity of digital payments, this could be a solution to protecting the authenticity of our online [...]
Salesforce expanded the ‘National Park, Natural Beauty’ theme even further this year at its developer conference TrailheaDX. At first take, I can hear the skeptics: ‘technology and nature are opposites, who is Salesforce kidding by blanketing its platforms, cloud products, apps, and developers with a ‘feel good’ gimmick suggesting otherwise?’ And while I can hear that argument at face value, I would suggest that soon enough, if one looks into the body of evidence that literally surrounds us, software and other information technologies WILL be quite natural on Planet Earth. It’s already in the clouds is it not? I think it’s also in the [...]
Everyone has a unique set of New Year’s Day resolutions, and computer programmers’ resolutions and wishes for 2018 are bound to differ greatly from your run-of-the-mill average resolutions.
And if there’s anything a programmer should plan on doing to make him or herself a better programmer in the year ahead, it’s to get equipped with a new stash of helpful programming tools.
Here are six of the top tools you may wish to add to your programming tool box for 2018:1. Get the latest version of Retrace
Retrace has long been an essential coding tool that lets you track how often you access Web-based HTTP services. But every new version of Retrace is seeing substantial [...]
Anyone who knows me, knows that leaving the City on any given weekday is NOT something I’m exactly enthusiastic about. That commute, be it by car or Caltrain, leaves a lot to be desired these days. So to make the trek down on the Peninsula to attend a seemingly off-demographic conference being put on by an engineering acronym you’ve never heard of … may seem a little odd [#fairenough]. In this case though it was most certainly warranted, and I hope next year in its 5th, the Women in Engineering, International Leadership Conference (#WIELEAD) invites me to return.
‘Marketing’ and ‘Innovation’: two words that have traditionally been cloaked in vagueness, if not uncertainty. Why? Because they get abused by association and diluted in practice. Inconsistent results, substance, and meaning tend to have that effect. But when they click … [wo]man-o-[wo]man, that’s the stuff of business legend. And when the combined term ‘Marketing Innovation’ is firing on all cylinders, well, that’s something to write home about (or on the homepage at any rate). It would appear this is such a time, for are ABM and predictive marketing ever hitting their stride!
For purposes here, a simple definition: [...]

The latest news points to the fact that cybercrime is quickly overtaking physical crime, and by some reports, cybercrime is now in the lead. From last year’s hack of the cheater’s website, Ashley Madison, to this year’s hack of the DNC emails that are being blamed on Russia, cybercrime is at an all-time high and it is going to get even worse by all estimates.
Not only will there be human cyber thieves and hackers, but at the rate Artificial Intelligence, AI, is growing, soon those cybercriminals will be machines and not people at all. With all of the attention being diverted to cyber criminals, it might be a very good time to earn your criminology degree online. Who knows, you [...]
As we near the end of this god-forsaken year entitled 2016, there is certainly a lot to reflect on (or retract from depending on your disposition). This month has felt pretty surreal if not 100% in-conflict coming off last. I mean how is one supposed to feel merry with cheer given the defacement that is now set to be in control of America, not to mention all the other horrible developments around the globe? Santa is 100% happy he lives in the non-nationalized North Pole, except of course all his polar bear friends are dying from starvation due to climate change. There is that. Nonetheless (or perhaps despite the lessening), the two events in about as many weeks that caught my [...]
How do you define success? Sounds like something you’ll hear at a beauty pageant, right? You can quote the greatest men in history or the most iconic pop stars. Or you can make your own and find the words happiness, contentment, riches, influence to fit perfectly.
But how do you write it down on paper? Once you think you have achieved career success, you can’t simply reduce it to a nice quote. The fact is you must have something to show for it. You can’t expect people to just take your word for it. There are important figures to help you gauge success, or failure. You can always argue how happiness is the key to career success or how a sense of fulfillment defines success, but [...]
Penetration testing of Internet-facing fintech applications is an essential necessity in the age of online competitors and cybercrime. Penetration testing gives you the independent assurance that all the hard work you have invested in designing and implementing secure infrastructure or applications has paid off and your product won’t fall apart when subjected to malicious activity – as eventually it will be. Deciding on the specific type and scope of penetration testing however is not straightforward. Here is a basic introduction to assist with informed decision-making. Web application penetration testing Penetration testing of Web applications involves identification of [...]
