Some insurance companies, such as AIG, have put themselves in dire financial circumstances. The billion in these companies have received in federal bailout money has added fuel to the economic downturn. On the other hand, the $21 billion Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company doesn’t need one cent of taxpayers’ dollars to preserve its customers’ wealth. This 150-year old, highly profitable company has more than $1 trillion of life insurance protection in force. Products include life insurance, long-term care insurance, disability insurance, annuities, mutual funds, and employee benefit services. In fact, the company maintains the highest available ratings for insurance financial strength from all four major ratings agencies.  Read More

General Motors. Motorola. Panasonic. These companies began 2009 by announcing massive layoffs. The economic downturn has just about everyone questioning their job security. What will it take to find another one? While IT plays a key role in running the systems that power organizations, IT people aren't immune from layoffs, as CIOs struggle to cut costs and to do more with less. To get some answers on how CIOs and their staff can cope with this situation, enterpriseleadership.org turned to Paul Glen, the author of the award-winning book, Leading Geeks -- How to Lead and Manage People Who Drive Technology, and a management columnist for Computerworld. He has more than 10 years of experience delivering and managing IT products and services. He has taught at MBA programs at the University of Southern California and Loyola Marymount University.  In fact, many graduate programs often cite his book in courses about managing technical professionals.  Read More

It’s hard to avoid all of the news stories about the economic downturn, company layoffs, or employees being asked to take drastic pay cuts.  Most employees understand that businesses have no choice but to reduce their costs. On the other hand, those disgruntle employees or former employees in dire financial straits could find themselves doing things they wouldn’t normally do. As a result, these employees could pose a whole new set of security threats to an organization. Brian Wolfe, a security expert and co-founder of Laurus Technologies, an IT consulting firm specializing in security, says that companies must have controls in place to make sure that people can’t do things, such as authorizing a purchase order to a fictitious vendor, and having funds disbursed to a company that never receives the goods.”  Read More

Dr. Norman Jacknis has much experience finding innovative ways to use technology. For 10 years, he served as the CIO for Westchester Country, one of the most prosperous counties in New York State. His mission focused on working with business leaders to create real business impact from IT. Because he had extensive knowledge of the business, Dr. Jacknis used every opportunity to speak to the CEO, who he reported to, about how to improve things, some of which didn't necessarily involve technology, but management issues or policy issues. He says, "I wasn't afraid to say we can use technology here, but you first need to address this issue."  Read More
