Lockheed Martin to acquire Industrial Defender - Industrial Cyber-security market heats up

Cyber-security was an unknown business driver a few years back. The recent attacks and the possibility of a 'cascading failure' due to cyber-attacks on networks and industrial control systems has made cyber-security a 'must-have' solution for systems security purposes.

Cannibalize Yourself - Growing your business without fear

I speak with executives every day. That’s my job. And the job of the executives with whom I speak is to grow their business.

"I Want to See What You Do"

Time for a secret: One of my favorite books is The Street Where I Live, by Alan Jay Lerner. It’s Lerner’s memoir of how he (in collaboration with Fritz Loewe) wrote My Fair Lady, Gigi, and Camelot (I really do love my golden age of musicals, I really do). I re-read it at least once a year.
