Landing a presidential innovation fellowship is a prized position but those who have taken on the challenge say they would do it again, but were surprised by the lack of resources. It definitely requires thinking out-of-the-box and a strong constitution to work within entrenched bureaucracies try to get things done.

Time to Reconsider Enterprise Email Strategy
Cost, time, and risk. It's the demand trifecta vying for the attention of both technology professionals and attorneys charged with balancing the expectations of their clients and business units with the hard reality of the current financial and regulatory climate. Sometimes, organizations assume high levels of risk as a result of their inability to meet the costs involved in data protection. In other instances, it's time that's of the essence, as with a data breach.
