Article: The Legend of Motorola: Embracing the Next Generation of Process Improvement by Tina Huesing.


In the 1980s, Motorola made waves in the business world with the development of its process improvement strategy Six Sigma.

Article: Going Beyond the Technical in SIEM by Author: Aleksandr Kuznetcov, CISM, MVP.


The majority of modern companies encounter information security challenges every day, ranging from external targeted attacks to internal leaks, despite using various information security approaches and tools. IT is rapidly evolving, in keeping with the threat landscape; but new approaches and tools mean new vulnerabilities. Violators are becoming smarter and faster. The classic confidentiality, integrity and availability (CIA) triad has not been enough to address these challenges, especially when information security incidents occur (i.e., the CIA triad was violated fully or partially).

Global analytical reports find a growing number of incidents annually and increasing incident sophistication. In other words, incidents have happened, are happening and will be happening. For timely incident detection and deep forensics, it is necessary to expand information security abilities and the CIA triad, ensuring accountability. However, accountability creates millions of security events; therefore, it is important to ensure effective security information and event management (SIEM) within an information security management system (ISMS).

This article addresses an existing imbalance between technical issues and process aspects related to SIEM. This gap is the root cause of some skepticism with and disappointment in SIEM.

Article: Technology-Based Trust With Blockchain by Luis Emilio Alvarez-Dionisi, Ph.D.


Emerging technologies such as 5G, microservices, the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, containers, blockchain and many others are shaping the meaning of “technology-based trust.” Consequently, technology-based trust deals with the acceptance that a particular technology is reliable, does what it is supposed to do and delivers what it should.

Although blockchain can be analyzed from a very technical perspective, it is also helpful to focus on technology-based trust with blockchain from a management point of view.

The PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) 2017 Global FinTech Executive Summary, Redrawing the Lines: FinTech’s Growing Influence on Financial Services stated that “blockchain is moving out of the lab.” However, this particular statement portrays how the application of scientific knowledge can be used for practical purposes outside the research and development laboratory for the benefit of the enterprise.

In fact, it is very interesting to see the effect of blockchain’s debut in the fintech industry with Bitcoin.

However, blockchain is well known for having disruptive effects by transforming financial services and supporting new business models, applications, processes, products or services.

As a result, it is important to understand the idea of technology-based trust with blockchain by grasping the concept of distributed ledger technology (DLT), the meaning of blockchain, blockchain types, intermediation problem and the use of trusted fintech products using blockchain.
