Red Hat Shares - Edge computing: Security
Edge security is becoming increasingly important as more organizations turn to edge computing to benefit from the flexibility of hybrid cloud computing and deliver faster, more reliable services at a lower cost.
When we surveyed IT decision makers in 2021 for our 2022 Global Tech Outlook report about what emerging technologies they were most likely to consider using in the next year, or are currently using, 28% said edge computing (up from 25% in 2020). Furthermore, a July 2022 report from 451 Research reveals that "large organizations will significantly expand edge computing infrastructure in two years."1

In edge computing, an increase in data and processing outside the traditional datacenter creates potential risk to organizations. Reduced physical security, a limited compute footprint, lower cost expectations and remote management are often compounded by a lack of IT personnel. These issues combine to create relaxed standards for security and policy and expand the attack surface.

Is This the Year of Private Networks?
With the rise of 5G comes the rise of private networks. Private 5G networks allow companies to manage all of their devices, services, and assets in a more secure, private, and efficient way, having more control of their network.
With enterprises facing the need for accelerated digitization and 5G designed to provide solutions for these obstacles, this could be the year of 5G.

Industry Challenges

Some of the most pressing industry needs are reliable coverage, higher bandwidth, speed and security. All of these challenges pose very real financial, regulatory and privacy risks, and at the same time, significant competitive advantage if they're all met. Security, in particular, continues to rise in priority, with weekly corporate cybersecurity attacks were up 50% last year alone. Still, while cybersecurity concerns are up, more demand for operation efficiency has created a tightrope walk for enterprises.

10 Mistakes Rookie CIOs Make - And How To Avoid Them
From trying to change too much to underestimating the political nature of the role, IT leaders and advisors lend insights on what most often trips up first-time CIOs.
Newly minted CIOs have a wealth of guidebooks, white papers, and blogs to help set themselves up for success from day one, as the first 100 days of a new leadership role are crucial.

But theory can only take a new leader so far. Practice is how leaders are made, and as anyone who has gone through this challenging process knows, those first months on the job as a CIO are likely to be rife with mistakes.

How You Can Manage And Eliminate Technical Debt
What do out-of-date third party components, a product backlog, and a rushed software launch all have in common?
All are culprits that cause technical debt (or 'tech debt') to pile up.

Technical debt is a lot like financial debt - you're acquiring an asset now and promising to pay for it later. Sonatype CEO Wayne Jackson notes that ignoring tech debt is like a 'sugar high' during a software release. It allows you to ship more software faster, with all sorts of bells and whistles, making both customers and investors happy.

Until, of course, something vital breaks. This can lead to significant rework and refactoring, increasing your costs and, critically, slowing a development organization's productivity to a crawl.

6 Tactics To Boost Creativity On Your IT Team
Creativity powers innovation, and innovation wins market share. Consider this expert advice to build a work environment that values creative thinking
For IT teams, creativity is not just about looking toward the future; it also involves examining the present. Creativity is necessary for productivity.

In IT, there are many Information Technology Infrastructure Library- (ITIL) and Capability Maturity Model (CMM)-based processes that provide a framework for carrying out certain tasks. At times, employees fall back on these processes to boost productivity. But in the end, it's the creative companies - the ones that are developing leaner, more efficient, and more flexible processes within those frameworks - that come out on top.

Cyber Security: The Message That Never Makes It Up To The Board
Cyber security was never a purely technical problem; it is now a leadership imperative in many firms
For the past 20 years, cyber security - information security in its early days - has been seen primarily as a technical matter, to be solved by technologists using technology means.

In most organisations, it has never been 'owned' as such at Board level in spite of the tidal wave of cyber-attacks which have rocked most industries across the last decade, and the false pretence by many that it's on their agenda.

NAS vs. Cloud Storage: Which Is Better For Your Business?
On-site NAS and cloud-based NAS are the two main file storage options. Organizations need to weigh the benefits and drawbacks of each to make the best choice.
For many companies, their first foray into networked and shared data storage comes with the deployment of their first network-attached storage system. NAS offers a logical and relatively painless transition from server- and client-based storage with processes and operations familiar to the most popular server OSes -- Windows and a variety of Linux distributions. Most NAS gear runs atop one of those ubiquitous OSes, giving system admins a user-friendly leg up on the networked storage learning curve.

5 Ways Data Storage IT Pros Enable Business User Self-Service
Enterprise data storage professionals are increasingly finding themselves at the center of business discussions: finding important files, showing departmental usage, recalling files from archives for an audit or new research, moving distinct data sets into the cloud to import into a new analytics environment, and deleting data to satisfy regulations
Meanwhile, these tasks have become more complex. Hybrid, multi-cloud, and edge infrastructure means that data increasingly lives across many different silos and is difficult to find and move when needed. The data storage administrator or architect must navigate many decisions and do the right analysis to ensure that data is protected and where it needs to be for both users and budget requirements.

Of course, users and executives don't care much about these details. They want cost-efficient storage and fast and secure access to the right data sets to facilitate better decisions and new ideas. Data storage IT teams have an important role in collaborating with departments and end-users to help everyone meet their goals. Rather than focusing solely on data storage technology procurement, configuration, and spend management, storage professionals now must focus on right-placing data and empowering line-of-business users to help themselves.

PCIe 5.0 Arriving and to Invade SSDs
Electrical bus PCI Express (or PCIe), which stands for Peripheral Component Interconnect Express, is a standard developed by PCI-SIG for connecting peripheral devices to a motherboard including graphics cards, sound cards, video capture cards, network/WiFi cards, and storage devices.
It is the dominant bus for connecting expansion cards and devices (alongside USB, used for externally connected devices). When PCIe is used for storage, the NVMe storage protocol is typically used

I/O bandwidth doubles about every 3 years for this popular interface for SSDs.

But, on its side, PCIe 5.0 doubles PCIe 4.0 spec bandwidth in less than 2 years., September 20th, 2022

OpenAI Open-Sources Whisper, A Multilingual Speech Recognition System
Speech recognition remains a challenging problem in AI and machine learning. In a step toward solving it, OpenAI today open-sourced Whisper, an automatic speech recognition system that the company claims enables 'robust' transcription in multiple languages as well as translation from those languages into English.
Countless organizations have developed highly capable speech recognition systems, which sit at the core of software and services from tech giants like Google, Amazon and Meta. But what makes Whisper different, according to OpenAI, is that it was trained on 680,000 hours of multilingual and 'multitask' data collected from the web, which lead to improved recognition of unique accents, background noise and technical jargon.

The 'Hopper' GPU Compute Ramp Finally Starts
You can't be certain about a lot of things in the world these days, but one thing you can count on is the voracious appetite for parallel compute, high bandwidth memory, and high bandwidth networking for AI training workloads.

The Cost Of Single Sign-On (SSO) And Password Management
By 2030, the SaaS estate will look different. KPMG expects shadow SaaS (also known as business-led SaaS) to be more than 80 percent of the overall SaaS service layer in just 8 years.
Naturally, most security teams are seeking ways to fortify their organization's evolving, dynamic SaaS estate-many times, turning to legacy solutions like cloud access security brokers (CASB) or identity and access management (IAM) providers.

Far too often, IAM, SSO, and password management tools have the same fate as CASB, with their decade-long run of failure. And just as CASB failed to keep pace with the changing SaaS service layer, identity and password management solutions have failed to keep pace security needs for identities.

Security Buzzwords To Avoid And What To Say Instead
Consider these thoughtful approaches to define what security really means in your open source project.
Technology is a little famous for coming up with "buzzwords." Other industries do it, too, of course. "Story-driven" and "rules light" tabletop games are a big thing right now, "deconstructed" burgers and burritos are a big deal in fine dining. The problem with buzzwords in tech, though, is that they potentially actually affect your life. When somebody calls an application "secure," to influence you to use their product, there's an implicit promise being made. "Secure" must mean that something's secure. It's safe for you to use and trust. The problem is, the word "secure" can actually refer to any number of things, and the tech industry often uses it as such a general term that it becomes meaningless., September 20th, 2022

Poor Identity Management Amplifies Ransomware
While ransomware is malware, security leaders must go beyond legacy anti-malware approaches to mitigate risk.
Ransomware is a data-centric threat; that is, ransomware preys on corporate data. Cunning and successful ransomware attacks hijack user access with an aim to encrypt sensitive files, stealing data. So, if ransomware is all about the data and the hijacking of user access to get to the data, then the more data a user can access, the more attractive target the user is for the attacker.

In the early days, cloud computing was seen as just another way to consume an application. Those applications (now called software as a service) covered tasks such as salesforce management, accounting, inventory control, etc. Cloud was not really viewed as that revolutionary because this type of app consumption had existed for decades in more primitive forms.

Email signatures ostensibly make your communiques look like they're wearing a nice suit, but really, it's just an extra part of the email that we can't help but read. No one likes to read more emails than they have to.
You may have seen them embedded at the bottom of an incoming email like a business card you didn't ask for. Sometimes they feature contact information, sometimes there's also a website URL and logo, and sometimes email signatures are longer than the email itself, telling you the whole journey of that person and their email, with a motivational quote or company slogan, a Hallmark-type picture, and something else that thankfully doesn't load.
