“Shadow IT” is a major concern for organizations of all sizes. The term refers to efforts by members within an organization to acquire and manage their own IT resources.  In the early days of networks, this might have involved bringing in an unauthorized technology to create a personal Wi-Fi network.  The primary danger lay in that this technology was not under management of IT and thus could unintentionally expose the company’s network and digital assets.

Cisco's highest-tech digital offering in five years -- Project Squared, which hit their Partner Summit in L.A. last week -- breaks digital boundaries by tapping into analog sensibilities.  Yep. You read that right.  Analog.  Turns out, counter-intuitively -- and yet shockingly intuitive once the light bulb flashes on -- analog is the way to understand digital.

Many corporations face the challenge of keeping end-users satisfied with their company’s IT services while maintaining control over information that is critical to the success of their business. Baylor College of Medicine recently found themselves in a similar situation. Compounding these conflicting efforts, Baylor needed to negotiate and resolve issues around researcher grant funding (which is granted to a researcher or project) as well as solve for challenges plaguing the College itself.

Compliance, what is it? The dictionary defines compliance as, “the action of obeying, or complying, to a wish or command.” In IT, we think of compliance as adhering to the rules placed on us by the government or industry, to better secure our intellectual assets and customer data. When we think of compliance we think of PCI, HIPAA, GLBA, FISMA, and so on. But if regulatory compliance is meant to help us protect our data, then why are so many “compliant” companies being breached? The answer is simple, “Compliance does not equal security”.
