Information security breach turned into teachable moment

Karen Goulart Karen Goulart Profile: Karen Goulart

Technically the public didn’t need to know about the recent information security breach at “The New York Times.” No customer information was compromised and no damage was done to affiliated entities.¬†Yet the paper decided to do what newspapers do best and present an in-depth look at the incident in service of the common good. That’s why this week’s SearchCIO.com Searchlight leads off with the piece — it offers insight into how hackers operate and reminds us to be aware that this can and does happen to businesses of all stripes. If you can get past the item about security concerns related to Facebook’s Social Graph, the Searchlight has some less stress-inducing items on the new BlackBerry phones, heartwarming uses for big data and more.

This isn’t going to cut it.
