Join us for a roundup of the top stories on InformationWeek.com for the week of December 7, 2014. The show begins with The Week in :60, then we'll be talking with the InformationWeek.com editors and correspondents who brought you the top stories of the week to get the "story behind the story." We'll be sure to wrap things up with the always thought-provoking Geekend writer David Wagner.
In our first segment we’ll talk with InformationWeek.com editor Chris Murphy about the hospitality industry CIO who’s on the hunt for 100 talented new people for his organization. (http://www.informationweek.com/strategic-cio/it-strategy/cio-hiring-100-it-pros-what-he-needs/a/d-id/1318018) The specific skills he needs — and the way he’s going about finding them — might well surprise you. They’ll certainly be thought-provoking if you’re on the lookout for your own new IT talent.
Next, in a happy holiday season filled with security Grinches eager to steal your personal data along with the digital roast beast, Dark Reading’s Sara Peters has a ray of hope with her story on major progress in universal two-factor authentication. (http://www.darkreading.com/universal-multi-factor-authentication-steps-closer-to-the-mainstream/d/d-id/1317993?) The new standards might not save this Christmas but might they be enough to make 2015 just a little bit brighter? Tune in to find out.
Finally, Dave Wagner join us for a Geekend tale that looks at the latest code-ready solution to a problem that’s as old as Santa Claus and restless 5-year old children. You won’t want to miss this story on the technology that just might help you survive Christmas Eve.
Join us for the show and for the incredible Friday Afternoon Conversation that runs beside the program. This is your chance to talk with your fellow InformationWeek.com community members about the news items that mean the most to your profession, your enterprise, and your work life. We'll look forward to having your voice in the discussion!
