As we say goodbye to the fall months, we say hello to a few months off from CIO forums. With our Minnesota event on December 5th, we can breathe a sigh of relief until the forums start back up with The 2017 Boston CIO Forum, on March 21st. However, we aren’t going to sit idly by until March. We have some hard work to do in order to pack the place in March. Plus, we have a lot of top secret projects in the works that we are sure you’ll love!
On November 1st and 2nd in the Portland Convention Center, hundreds of conference-goers and vendors gathered to share in the teaching and learning of emergency preparedness and emergency leadership skills.

The recent IoT DDoS attacks have proven the fragility of some key systems that power the Internet. In this case, users’ ability to get to websites was cut off because the address of the website (such as google.com) could not be resolved to its internet address (18.104.22.168).

In this article, Bryce discusses the attack in term for non-technical business executives.
