"How do we keep our data secure?" is the question nearly every organization is asking these days. The last spot any organization wants to be in is that of a security breach. Stephane Nappo, an industry known Chief Security officer, is often heard saying "It takes 20 years to build a reputation and a few minutes of cyber-incident to ruin it". And here he's just referencing the fall out of a business's image from a breach and not even touching on the mass harm that can be done with stolen data in the wrong hands.

In the last few weeks, I have had a number of conversations with customers about what we have come to call the Automation Paradox. What happens is that organizations seeking to automate manual processes are so busy, that they cannot find the time to invest in automating in the first place, and so they find themselves frozen - unable to move forward. I took some time to talk to customers who got through this, and found a number of themes that may help you get past this.

Back in the day, before I was a father, before I was a husband, back when I was more of an adrenaline ‘junkie’, one of my ongoing adventures was skydiving. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a hobby as I never followed through with a certification, but I took my fair share of jumps. When I first started I would go with either a ‘static line’, where a cord hanging from the plane would pull my chute, or go on what is called ‘tandem’.

Back in my mid to late 20s, my most prized possession was my Yamaha R1 motorcycle. Living and working in the city of Milwaukee meant I didn’t need to worry about finding parking, gas was cheap, and it was fast, one of the fastest sport bikes on the market at the time. But with that speed and power comes great responsibility, and I took that responsibility seriously. If I was going to go out and meet friends, I promised myself, not one sip of alcohol.

Recently I joined a team to run a ‘Ragnar’. A ‘Ragnar’ is a running race where you and an additional seven teammates run a course that typically lasts around 24 hours non stop. Our team joined over 300 other teams running this Ragnar trail course in the middle of the woods in northern Wisconsin. This course consisted of three loops, a 3 mile loop, a six mile loop and a seven mile loop.
