Can I predict the future accurately?

I alone cannot. Not with all the tarot cards, tea leaves and palm readings in the world, I wouldn’t be able to predict what will happen to you, or anyone else for that matter, tomorrow when you get out of bed.

But actually, in InfoSec Compliance, there is a semi-easy way to find out what may happen in the future; it’s by looking at historical data. Seeing how you have behaved and reacted to situations in the past can help make more accurate predictions about your future. Reviewing historical compliance data lets you see how far your organizational compliance posture has evolved, so you (and perhaps more importantly, your auditor) can understand where you’re likely headed.

“History is a better guide than good intentions” – Jeane Kirkpatrick

I’m not a history teacher (there was more money to be made in InfoSec than in teaching, sorry to say) but although having to wait 6 months to a year to complete an audit is frustrating (it’s is the least we can say), it makes sense. Here’s why I say that; A few weeks ago, we explored the differences between SOC 2 Type 1 and SOC 2 Type 2. I’ll avoid a major recap here, but suffice it to say that the 2 types of SOC attestations are similar in many ways; both auditing controls and policies, with the goal of understanding compliance posture. Yet there is a huge difference – SOC 2 Type 2 is about the value of conformance over time and Type 1 is about the here and now. And we all know that of the two, SOC 2 Type 2 is far more valuable.

There are two reasons why looking at history is so crucial:

For current year compliance assessment

The objective of standards such as SOC 2 and ISO 27001 is to establish practices that enable an optimal compliance posture. To do this, select the most important controls for your organization. These can include controls such as event logging, monitoring, and incident management. This may also include proper change management, such as change detection, change requests, designs and approvals, security testing for changes, rollback of changes, and emergency change processes and even more. Either way, once the controls are agreed with the auditor, then you have to wait some time to see if they are actually implemented and ensure you still get the same results.

If you can demonstrate that your controls are still working as intended over that time frame, that’s a powerful demonstration that your compliance strategy is strong. And that’s why it takes so long to prepare for SOC 2 Type 2 and that’s also why it’s more valuable than a Type 1 report. he history is an essential element.

To show compliance maturity over time

The other reason we care about history is to understand maturity over time; this is particularly important in ISO 27001, where improving maturity year on year is a major factor. Do you remember the first time you prepared for the ISO? It was enough that your controls consisted of having policies and procedures in place and showing management commitment and decision-making regarding security measures, as well as good access management, focused on the processes of integration and disintegration. But we both know that while that’s great for an early-stage startup, it wouldn’t fly at Microsoft, or even a startup with a few years of audits under its belt.

Section 10 of ISO 27001:2013 covers the continuous improvement of the Information Security Management System (ISMS) assessment. Section 10.1, Nonconformities and Corrective Actions, discusses the corrective procedures taken when your company encounters a nonconformity. Section 10.2, Continuous Improvement, discusses how your organization inspects, reviews, and then measures these procedures to ensure that improvement is always ongoing. The focus is on ensuring that your compliance posture is always worked on and optimized and that each year is better than the last.

“If you want to understand today, you must seek yesterday” – Pearl S. Buck

This is the advantage of having access to the compliance history; it lets you see where you’ve come from and where you’re headed. With the right tools, you can demonstrate ‘conformance over time’, to show improvement in internal and external standards.

They say that if we are not careful, history repeats itself; I say the more careful and intentional we are in developing our compliance policies and procedures, then hopefully, with any luck, history will continue to repeat itself.

Students at the Montgomery School regularly attended coding sessions with Barclays Digital Eagles, writes 6th grader Lacey Evans.

At their meeting, we each have a laptop and a live video will be shown on the screen. We all log into Scratch by carefully following their tutorial.

Barclays talks about the scratch project and if you get stuck they will slow down and let you catch up.

Everyone in the class really loves it when we learn to code with Barclays. We learned both complex and simple coding chains on Scratch, from using the pen function to creating fun games.

The coding course is live, or you can catch up on their website.

It is also great to do Barclays coding projects with many other schools across the country, especially designing a playground project for Safe Internet Day 2022.

Jenny from Year 6 said: “Barclays tutorials are easy to follow with outstanding results. They also help children develop good ICT skills.

Year 5’s Connor said, “It was fun and interesting and I learned a lot of coding skills.”

Made in Monty’s permanent home at the City Institute

After appearing in the institute on Arthur Street as Christmas approached, Made in Monty had the pleasure of announcing that the boutique will definitely open in the same location from Monday 11 April.

Val Padbury and her husband, artist Richard, who was a stage artist at the Royal Shakespeare Theater for over 30 years, both make jewelery and create original artwork and crafts.

Val makes a wide variety of unusual items including Christmas decorations and decorative burlap bags.

Val said: “We are so excited. We will be selling our own original artwork, sheep themed decorative items, eco-friendly burlap shopper with fun designs, and self-made jewelry. In addition, we have leather goods, scarves and gift ideas from other selected suppliers.

“During lockdown we have developed new jewelry designs, as well as additional designs in our selection of burlap bags, adding a fish and bunnies along with others.

“We have enjoyed our pop-up shops at the Old Bell Gallery over the years, and at the institute more recently, and are delighted to make a permanent home for our shop in Montgomery. We are waiting for it with great impatience. »

The store will be open Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Montgomery Library is due to reopen in the institute building in the coming weeks, having moved to what was the old reading room and retaining a similar amount of shelf space.

The Cloverlands Car Museum having moved to Llanfair Caereinion, and once the current refurbishment is complete the institute will have another room available for community events.

Easter Egg Trail offers family fun

An Easter Egg Trail for children and families will take place in Montgomery from April 8-26.

Pick up a card for £2 from Bunners on Arthurs Street or Spar on Broad Street, and follow the path around town to find the letters and create an Easter word.

Once you complete the course and the word, you can collect a chocolate reward from Bunners or Spar.

Children must be accompanied by an adult to follow and complete the course.

All proceeds from the Easter Egg Trail will go to the Friends of Montgomery School, which is currently fundraising to support the school and its learners, including computer equipment, food technology equipment and forest school resources.

Friends of the School would like to thank individuals and businesses, including Tesco Community Champions, for their kind donations.

Explore Monty with newly launched trail guide

With the arrival of spring and the Easter holidays approaching, why not take the opportunity to take a walk or bike ride through our beautiful city and countryside of Montgomery with Montgomery Trails?

With five circular walking trails, four biking trails and two city quiz trails, the whole family can enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.

Trail leaflets are available from various outlets around town or you can download them from www.montgomery-trails.co.uk.

Ex-employees sue Alphabet Inc’s Google over racial discrimination against black people

Civil rights attorney Ben Crump filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against Alphabet Inc’s Google this week, claiming there had been a pattern of racial discrimination against minority employees. It’s a lesson for many tech giants and other emerging tech companies that racial discrimination is bad for their reputation and should be avoided in order to maintain corporate dignity.

The lawsuit alleges that April Curley, who is black, joined an entry-level role at Google from Alphabet Inc, despite having a master’s degree and five years of experience. Curley’s work focused on increasing company diversity by recruiting potential employees from historically black colleges and universities. Curley says the company’s campaign to generate diversity was actually a public relations move. Instead, she says she faced discrimination and hostility because of her race.

Ways to avoid racial discrimination and also the mistake made by one of the tech giants like Google

To manage stress

Currently, there are many ways to avoid racial discrimination in a company, stress management is one of them. An organization that has a racism-free environment may appoint employees who have a history of racial discrimination in employment.

Friendly working environment

A company should follow the ideology of employment leadership rather than an authoritarian environment. It will ensure a friendly environment among the employees of the company, and everyone will have freedom of work. This will eventually increase the productivity and employment status of the company. A positive image of an investment firm with respect to employee rights is essential to its survival.

Continue the conversation

One of the best ways to avoid racial discrimination is to keep the conversation going. There must be actions to back up your words, otherwise they will remain empty promises. Employers can do this by initiating productive and respectful discussions, forming employee resource groups, training on harassment and discrimination prevention, and creating channels where employees feel safe to talk about issues. racial.

Just 18 when she got a chance to show off her math skills, this number-wizard was solving complex equations in an era when there were no calculators, computers or spreadsheets.

When companies represent the rich diversity of the wider population, they perform better

By publishing the first algorithm for Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine, a general-purpose mechanical computer, she created a career path for others to follow. She is the original computer programmer: Ada Lovelace.

This Women’s History Month, I want to honor Ada. She’s the reason I and many others are in the tech industry and have the careers we do. We owe it to her, she paved the way.

History in the making

As a woman in tech for over 20 years, I’m used to seeing vastly outnumbered women in the C-suite and the boardroom. As a Latina, I often found even fewer minorities around these tables. This is an important question to explore. Why is there a lack of representation of women and minorities in tech?

Learning about the history and roots of where and when women and minorities began their professional careers has been inspirational to me throughout my career. Ada Lovelace opened the door wide open for all to follow her path – and women and minorities were among the first behind her. Yet our current state of diversity, equity and inclusion bears little resemblance to early pioneers in the field, leaving much work to be done but also great promise in its fulfillment.

In the early days of coding, women flocked to programming because it offered rich opportunities and reward for merit. At the time, most men considered programming a more trivial task than building hardware, so they didn’t pursue it. And women have taken the lead as software developers of their time.

For example, did you know that 273 women behind the Colossus machines at Bletchley Park during World War II helped decipher German Axis messages? These women played a vital role in the operation of the computers used for decoding. And by now you’ve probably heard of the book/movie “Hidden Figures” and the black women who were instrumental in moving NASA projects forward. Nicknamed “human computers” for their ability to perform very complex mathematical calculations by hand, they broke down barriers that others could follow.

Personal computer privilege

The 1980s, however, brought significant changes to the technological landscape. The world of programming has been turned upside down, shifting from a career primarily traversed by women to an industry heavily dominated by young white men. Personal computers first came home in the late 1970s and early 1980s, which completely changed the pool of students enrolled in computer science degrees.

The introduction of PCs into homes largely excluded minorities because mostly affluent white households could afford them. During this same period, the Hollywood trope of the “computer nerd” was born, thanks to films like “Revenge of the Nerds” and “Weird Science”. The big-screen stereotype applied mostly to white, awkward boys — not women, minorities, or frankly even “cool kids.” Add to that the fact that boys were more likely to have received a computer as a gift from their parents, put it in their bedroom, and had more quality time with their dads – you can see how the engagement of girls and boys with minority computer technology has declined accordingly.

The more hands-on experience gave these white male applicants to college a much wider advantage. The few women and minorities who have pursued careers in technology have been singled out and put under additional pressure for not being “real programmer” or “hardcore” enough by not spending enough time in front of computer screens. computer or wanting to pursue something other than 24/7 programming.

The origins of a field determined by mastery of mathematics and a penchant for detail were discounted in favor of those with hands-on computer experience. And young white men stood out as having these newly required skills. This edge over the competition pushed the bar for college recruitment and ultimately led to a significant reversal in the ability of women and minorities to pursue careers in computer science.

Learn our history and look to the future

Learning the story of Ada Lovelace and the career women who followed brought me to a defining moment as a woman working in technology. Ada, the Bletchley Park Wrens, the hidden figures of NASA and so many others taught us everything we need to know today: that the world of technology is so much richer when everyone participate. Technology, programming, coding – these skills are really based on a person’s talents and appetite to keep learning, and these are also areas that are constantly changing and evolving.

The fight for women and minorities in tech lives on today. On the one hand, the COVID-19 pandemic has added insult to injury for women in tech, who are twice as likely to have lost their jobs or been laid off as men, according to a recent article by CIO.

On the other hand, the remote work that is now ubiquitous for knowledge workers has eradicated the geographic barriers that have historically helped prevent minorities from participating in the tech industry. the harvard business review reports that more than 90% of growth in the technology-intensive innovation sector between 2005 and 2017 occurred in just five US metropolitan areas. As someone who lives in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, I can relate to passing on a lot of technology opportunities given that relocation just wasn’t an option for me. Perhaps after COVID, we can expect a world where work is a thing you do, not a place you go – and we can still remove one of the historical constraints that has prevented greater representation in technology workforce.

Our present reflects our history and we can change the future when we learn from our past. As a minority woman, I wouldn’t be where I am today without the help and mentorship of many white men who believe in me and give me the opportunity to succeed. I want to thank them and the countless allies who understand that a person’s attitude and ability determine their altitude in a workplace where diversity is celebrated. Just as our workforce is better when all are depicted, this battle cannot be won without all contribute to the cause.

By remembering where it all began and what has contributed to who we are today, we can work better to break down the systemic biases that have been imposed and ensure that technology is an exciting career for anyone with the skills. and the will to do that. When boardrooms and C-suites represent the rich diversity of the wider population, businesses perform better and humans realize their potential.

“When I can see her, I can be her.” When we can see ourselves in others, we can strive to be in those positions and do even more. Let’s be those trailblazers for the next generation of computer nerds. Something tells me Ada would agree.

King Elementary students learn to make a difference through hunger awareness project

At King Elementary School, a project-based learning initiative to raise awareness about hunger has unleashed an infectious and creative energy. Grade five students learned how they can make a difference in the community.

In a language arts lesson on problem and solution models, Laverne McDowell, a fifth-grade teacher, introduced her students to information about what food insecurity is and its impact on families. This piqued the students’ interest and inspired them to dig deeper.

“The students worked on the project for a long time. They spent weeks analyzing data on hunger in Prince William County and Virginia. They met and collaborated on how to get involved and get the word out to our school community, McDowell shared.

Using information from their research, students demonstrated their knowledge by creating bulletin boards, badges, banners, posters, and writing newsletters to raise awareness of the issue. Some of the bulletin boards are displayed on a table in the school hall. A “hunger jar” sits on the table where students and staff can donate money to be sent to local food banks.

“I truly believe in project-based learning because it empowers students to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging, and complex problem facing the world. We need young people who are ready and able to meet the challenges of their lives and the world. Students can address issues that are important to them and their communities,” McDowell said.

The project-based learning initiative left a lasting impression on the students. Reflecting on their efforts, Adriana said, “I learned that not everyone eats three meals a day. And that we need to pay more attention to situations like these. Also, if you could help one person, it would make a big difference.

Mia shared, “It was an honor to do this project. I learned that we can all do something to help each other. I can bring families together and we can plan food drives.

Diana added: “I learned so much from this project. There is no other word to describe this project, but amazing. I will remember everything we have done and let more people know about food insecurity in our communities.
