I didn’t manage to get to sessions where data security was the main topic, but I know it was a large topic of conversation all around the conference. Law firms are being held reaponsible by clients for keeping data that belongs to those clients secure, but it’s a tough thing to do when you don’t even know what data you have or where it’s been stored. Trying to do that is the first challenge many firms are facing.
Smart enough to get in, not smart enough to cover their tracks when getting paid. That doesn’t seem so smart. Which goes to show, that security around Twitter could have been a lot better, and people who work there maybe should have been a little less careless. That doesn’t bode well for the rest of us when even a big tech company can’t get this right. How many of us have people on staff who might fall for this kind of phone-based attack?
What should we think of the complicated, super-smart hackers who also manage to be so easily identifiable? Should we accept that the hardest thing about any conspiracy, and this goes for all the conspiracy theories out there, is making sure one person doesn’t do something stupid and give it all away?

But long hours don’t make you more effective: you’re wasting time spinning wheels because you’re…
It’s that first line that should grab your attention because so many people do not see mental health struggles as something that impacts them, or will impact them. But the numbers don’t lie. Someone you know, probably even someone very close to you, is dealing with mental health struggles as you read this. Someone you work with is doing the same themselves or supporting someone else who is.
How great would it be if we all recognized that and provided a safe place for them to talk about those struggles instead of not welcoming their voices and causing more harm?
I don’t think we can even imagine how helpful that would be because we see it so infrequently. It’s time for that to change.
The technology is getting better. Just this week I downloaded Facebook’s Moments app to take a look at it and sure enough, it pretty much nailed every match of a person in a photo on my phone with their Facebook profile. I don’t think we are going to stop businesses and government agencies from using…
