In a previous podcast, I was joined by Bob Fecteau. Bob is what I call a Tier 1 CIO at SAIC.

Here is the link to our conversation.

Tier 1 CIOs are, in my opinion, in the top 5-10% of the profession.

In this conversation with Bob, we discussed the importance of Financial Literacy within a CIO role.

Bob had a great quote on CIOs stepping up to the challenge of mastering financial literacy, “[CIOs] own ultimately the responsibility to make sure that costs are managed, controlled and understood.”

Bob will also be headlining the next 10X Innovation, Strategy, and Leadership Session on February 10th. The central theme of this event is “What are the financial demands of the CIO?”

Here are just a few of the critical questions he will be addressing:
✔️ Do you know how much your assets cost?
✔️ Do you have your assets categorized appropriately?
✔️ How do you pay for it all?

Happy National Data Privacy Day!

National Data Privacy Day is observed each year on January 28th and raises awareness about the importance of respecting privacy, safeguarding data, and enabling trust. 🤝

The theme for 2021 for individuals is, “Own Your Privacy.”

Your personal information is like money 💵—it has value. Make informed decisions about when and where you share your personal information. 💻

James Crifasi and I discussed this topic in-depth as it relates to the increasing levels of fear and uncertainty and how to avoid falling victim to scammers.

For businesses, the theme this year is, “Respect Privacy.” Consider adopting a privacy framework to protect your business from data breaches.

In my conversation with Adam Gordon, Edutainer & SME at ITProTV, he is in favor of having a zero-trust architecture across the board to manage risk.

If You Don’t Have a Seat at The Table, Is it Your Fault or Your Business’?

“If you don’t have a seat at the table, is it your fault or your business’?”

This topic came up a lot in our last Mastermind meeting. Companies today need the CIO and Business IT Leader (BITL) roles more than ever.

If you don’t have a seat at the table, it is time to reflect on why. If a business does not have a CIO or Top Business IT Leader at the table, then the business will ultimately struggle and possibly fail.
