How to hire and retain Black tech pros — for real

American companies are once again promising to increase minority hiring and retention in the aftermath of the 2020 police killings of George Floyd and other Black people and subsequent Black Lives Matter demonstrations. But Black people have heard this promise before — for decades, in fact — with little tangible change in the low employment numbers of Black engineers, developers, and IT pros.For companies that really do want to change their staffs to better reflect diversity in the US, it’s time to go beyond words and take action. To help you do that, Computerworld talked to several people in the frontlines of promoting the hiring of Black people for tech jobs. Their advice was strong and unambiguous: Define the business case for diversity, then follow up with a determined action plan and establish the metrics to monitor the results and adjust course as needed. And perhaps even harder, learn to truly connect with the Black community to establish the relationships that lead to sustainable diversity.To read this article in full, please click here

BrandPost: Why Hyperconverged Infrastructure Reduces Lifetime Costs

Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) has been around for some time, but it is now being used by many mainstream enterprise data centers. It blends the elements of a traditional three-tier architecture (compute, storage and networking) into a single software-defined solution. In doing so, it offers cloud-like economics and scale without compromising on performance, resiliency and availability.That’s all well and good, but much is made of HCI’s ability to reduce your operating costs. Is that true, and exactly how does HCI do it?Modern IT’s biggest challengesWith multi-billion-dollar digital transformation projects already in progress, IT needs to justify every dime spent. This goes beyond upfront capital expenditure. You need to maximize the efficiency of every investment over time.To read this article in full, please click here

Where to find and recruit Black tech pros

The shock of the killing of George Floyd and other Black people in 2020 got Americans talking again about racial disparities — and companies talking again about improving diversity and inclusion. With Black History Month now winding down, there’s even more talk.But there’s been talk off and on for decades, with little result.By some measures, the proportion of Black people in engineering professions has actually dropped since the 1980s, despite all the awareness. More recently, while there have been improvements in Black representation in IT positions across industries, Black representation in the US tech sector as a whole is still just half of what the Black population overall is. Black representation remains even lower in the tech vendor community.To read this article in full, please click here

Why Apple should let you define private places on iPhones

If you’ve ever found the Significant Locations section on your iPhone, then a recently published study that shows how such data can be used to decipher personal information about users should pose some alarm.Significant Locations The way Significant Locations works is that your iPhone keeps a list of places you frequently visit. This list usually shows your favorite places and shops and will, of course, log the location of any service you might visit often, such as the medical center.Apple gathers this information to provide “useful location-related information” in its apps and services, and promises this data is encrypted and cannot be read by Apple. But I’m a little unclear whether this information is made available to third-party apps.To read this article in full, please click here

Apple tramples on security in the name of convenience

Apple plans with iOS 14.5 to allow masked enterprise employees to access their iPhones if they are also wearing an Apple Watch (running WatchOS 7.4), that is unlocked. Heads up: This is a quintessential convenience vs. security trade-off from Apple, and if you don't insist that workers refrain from using the feature, corporate security will suffer.In short, it will be make it much easier for corporate spies and cyberthieves to snag your company's intellectual property, which is being created, stored, and shipped within smartphones today at a far greater rate than 2019 — aka the pre-COVID-19 times.[ Related: When work-from-home means the boss is watching ] Apple has refused to let this convenience do anything other than opening the phone (which is bad enough). And it will not allow the feature to bypass facial ID authentication for the AppleCard, ApplePay or any third-party app (such as banks and investment firms) that have embraced Face ID. That tells you pretty much all you need to know about how much of a security corner-cutter this move is.To read this article in full, please click here

BrandPost: 3 ways HCI helps improve your data center security

As we all know, nothing is 100% secure — perhaps none more so than when legacy server infrastructure is involved.$4m per data breachAccording to figures from IBM’s Cost of a Data Breach report1, the average financial cost of a security breach in 2020 was $3.86 million. The cost to reputations (both corporate and personal) can be long-lasting and even more brutal. It’s clear to see why regulations such as the EU’s GDPR come with hefty penalties for data breaches.As a CIO or senior IT worker, you’re increasingly being asked to do more with less. Budgets are squeezed while expectations rise, yet new security threats still need focused time and resources. It’s a tricky position to be in - you don’t have to be a magician to work in IT, but it helps.To read this article in full, please click here
