According to survey, 57% believe that banks are the most vulnerable.
71% of Colombians are concerned about their data.
Consumers are really concerned about their personal data held by organizations; therefore, Unisys recommends that companies maintain a permanent security monitoring, and have knowledge and reporting capabilities within a comprehensive cyber security infrastructure. This, to protect information of citizens.
According to the latest survey ‘Unisys Security Insights’, who consulted the perception Colombians that their personal data be exposed accidentally or deliberately by some sectors of the economy that handle this type of information, 71 percent of respondents said that vulnerability may be higher in the telecommunications sector.
Meanwhile, 57 percent noted this weakness in financial institutions; 46 percent in the utilities; 40 percent, with healthcare companies; 39 percent, with the data of the Government; 37 percent, commercial establishments, and 36 percent to the airlines.
Colombia, with 47 percent, ranked fourth in the same survey on the likelihood that personal data could fall into the hands of unauthorized persons.
Colombians also consider ATMs one of the most vulnerable to cyberattacks channels. So it estimated 34 percent. Another 30 percent said that online purchases made on desktops or laptops do not generate a high level of security.
Credit cards and mobile banking, with 15 and 13 percent respectively, followed in the ranks of transactional channels that citizens feel weaker in the security chain of personal data.
The better off are mobile payments through smartphones and tablets for only 8 percent of respondents distrust the safety of these.
In his new book, ‘The Madness of technological solucionismo’ (Intellectual Key, 2015), the Belarusian intellectual charge against the dangers of the Internet and speech tecnoutópico
There was a time when Evgeny Morozov believed in the digital revolution. He hoped the emancipating power of the network, in the abolition of the old hierarchies, the emergence of a horizontal paradise fairer, into new technologies capable of ushering in a better world. Fever lasted little. It was the mid-2000s, in the days when he saw how blogs and text messages spurred the Orange Revolution in Ukraine and the crowdfunding enlivened the campaign of US Democratic candidate Howard Dean. Little soon realized that new technological tools could also be used by governments to monitor, generate propaganda and manipulate the conversation on networks. The result of these reflections was the heartbreak Internet (Destiny, 2012), a book in which he was skeptical about the ability of networks to be an instrument of political change. Skepticism that expands in his new book, The Madness of technological solucionismo (Key Intellectual, 2015).
Morozov a sandwich eaten in a meeting room of Stockholm Waterfront Congress Center, located next to the central station of the Swedish capital. Just made one of his provocative lectures at the Internetdagarna, annual technology event, and has not had time even to eat. Dressed in black from head to toe, shown as a quick, neat interviewed. His analysis of technology has taken off and has become a political discourse with transforming vocation.
There is a narrative, widespread on the idea of sharing on the Internet;technology companies constantly invite us to do so. Would you say that as aresult share more? Silicon Valley made an alliance in the seventies with intellectuals. There will always be people, who I call useful idiots, who will try tocapture the zeitgeist [Zeitgeist]. There will be books, lectures and talks for those intellectuals can make spokesmen for the cause. Silicon Valley promotes mininarrativas. We talk about Web 2.0 and, when exhausted, speaking of the Internet of things, the collaborative economy … identify small fragments occupy discussion for two years and then come out with a new story. Not much content in these narratives. I have worked long enough in this to say that is nonsense.After the collaborative economy will solidarity economy of care. What these companies tell us is false. When I go around saying that to understand Silicon Valley have to look at Wall Street , the Pentagon, finance, geopolitics or imperialism, they find it uncomfortable to hear because they prefer to talk about venture capital funds, entrepreneurs, garage of Steve Jobs, LSD …
These devices we use, called intelligent, they can become more stupid? You have to challenge the intelligent word. I like to apply a historical perspective.Many of smart devices that surround us reflect interests and commitments of the people who manufactures or configure. The reason people check again and again your Facebook or Twitter on the phone is that the systems are designed to create these units. The business model of this type of service is. The more clicks get, themore valuable I am; It occurs, almost as with the conditioning of Pavlov. The more mine clicks get, the more money they make me making services designed to maximize those clicks. I have a cynical, banal and rational that money is what governs the world perspective. And that explains how services are designed.What this system distracts us and hinders us to focus? Of course. Is it a problem of smart devices? No. It ‘s a matter of business model. I refuse to believe that there is another way to generate communication between people without causing distraction. It would be the final defeat of the imagination. We must be able to dream and think in terms that are not defined by Silicon Valley. For me, at this point, technology companies are like fast food chains, bookmakers or casinos: create and manufacture an addiction which then has consequences. In the case of technology, distraction.
Technology companies create an addiction that generates distraction “
The director of operations of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg , says Facebook helps us to express our authentic selves. This platform willprobably change the way we perceive ourselves and how we build, what do you think? Facebook is a service that is based on making us feel anxious about us, our friends, our place in society. People invest a lot of energy to update the information, anxiety is the currency that governs it . In this regard, it is clear that your being on Facebook affects how you conceive of yourself, how you see your relationship with friends, how you present yourself to others …
Does this mean that the more you use one is more anxious? I’m not saying that is a linear relationship, although it could probably be. There must be a time when you reach a plateau of anxiety and, at that point, medical you, you kill or you calm down [laughs]. It is hypercapitalism psychopathology.
What is hypercapitalism psychopathology? It’s an exploitation of your most cherished and intimate relationships! Your friendship with others for the benefit of a huge American company. With Facebook it is less visible. We not even conceive it possible to organize a project of resistance to these companies.Facebook is now attacking attack the most advanced capitalism. Against those who propose a change in the algorithm Facebook, I’m more drastic: I would build an alternative to Facebook with public money rather than accept that the only way to organize communications is through this firm.
In the eagerness to Silicon Valley to try to solve every problem that confronts the human being, it seems that WhatsApp tried to find a solution to our loneliness. Silicon Valley will sell anything that allows you to make money.If the loneliness, will sell you tools to make money with your loneliness. Few things today, are not subject to commercialism. Silicon Valley creates problems with one hand trying to solve with the other by selling new products.
Often they have called tecnoescéptico or technophobe. But what you say in your new book is that it is a digital heretic. Yes, I used that term. It was a way to position myself against contemporary debates about Silicon Valley. The truth is that if a heretic is meant someone who says things that are dangerous, subversive and going against the current of the debate, I am a heretic, if only by sociological nature. But my heresy has spread to other issues; I’m not a digital heretic, I am now more comfortable so in politics and the economy.
His speech in recent times is very oriented towards the question of data.What makes the debate on this issue is crucial for you? We are in an era in which the data is something around which emerging new business models and new forms of exploitation.
But people generally do not seem overly concerned about transfer their data. The important thing is to identify the points of exploitation, although this is done so that a pleasant one .
Does Google and Facebook are exploiting us? Exploit the data generated to make money with them; which has many other consequences, such as way that facilitates monitoring. For me, basically, Google wants to be the new welfare state and the new political party. They want to gather as much data as possible.And proactively fight disease; proactively they want you to be healthier;Proactively, they want to learn things you would not have learned any other way;generate free time for you and you only have access to it if you use your system.In that sense, they become the vehicle through which a type of social mobility or feed is generated. My fear is that hasnt reverse. They have the infrastructure, have the data. And if you want to launch an alternative service, it will be complicated.
What you do with our data? In the past five decades, data have become one of the most precious commodities.You sure want to know what chance you have of getting sick; your bank wants to know how likely you are not paying your mortgage. There ‘s a giant market selling data, not just digital type: if not look at what companies offer data when it is more than likely to end up being added on a managed by a handful of American firms base.
And what should be done with them?There are three options. One is thestatus quo : a couple of monopolies, Google and Facebook, continue still gathering more information about our life so that it can be integrated into smart devices: smart tables, smart thermostats; anything that has a sensor will generate data. Google Now is the paradigm of a system that tries to summon up all that data to make predictions and give you ideas. If you know you leaving reminds you to do the check in , tells you the time you will do, as a virtual assistant. It is the discourse of Google in terms of social mobility: giving the poor services that the rich already receive.
What are the other options? The second is to follow disruptors. There are companies that suck our data and turn them into money. One solution is for everyone to capture their own data and integrate them into a profile, giving access to anyone who wants to and charging for it. Thus, one becomes an entrepreneur. And the third option is still not very articulate, but it should be pursued. The data, in a good political, economic and legal framework, can lead to great services. The only future of public transport is a combination of data, algorithms and sensors that determine where people are and where you ‘regoing.
And who would the data in this case? Should we oppose the paradigm of private property extends to the data. There have been efforts to market to the air, and must be opposed. The data, without the ability to analyze, are no big deal.Today only some large companies are able to study them . This information should be under public control, that does not mean state control, but of citizens.The recent fascination in Europe by the idea of common , which has nothing to do with the common , is a healthy frame. People could pass these data voluntarily, but still owns them.
This is a political stance, what is what interests the common ? My own political and philosophical change in recent years has occurred because suddenly it became obvious to me that you can not win battles Silicon Valley dispersed mode. I can review a day, fight with these people on Twitter, and it does not change anything. The only way to change things is empotrarte in political and economic processes that can really change things. To me it means I have to take a realistic and sober position on what is possible around those who try tochallenge what Silicon Valley , Washington, Wall Street and the Pentagon attempt on the globe.
And what they’re trying to do? Money. I have an explanation of how it all works: a handful of companies set the tempo and the pace at which the world works. Are those that influence the texts that are being passed transatlantic treaties are to be signed in Europe and the United States. These treaties are drafted to protect businesses and non – citizens. In this sense, I am cynical, or realistic, about how power is distributed in the world these days. A Google and Facebook would like toexpand into other areas of the globe to accumulate more users, more data, sell more ads. But it is very difficult to have people who make a political reading of Google and Facebook because they see them as harmless or innocent, or as harbingers of post – capitalism, or as platforms to avoid the hegemony of the media. Facebook is good, people think, because it allows us to send messages outside the domain of newspapers and TV stations. Even political movements that attempt to challenge the dominance of neoliberal ideology these days can not make a sober reading of Silicon Valley.
It has experienced great physical change in the last two years. He has lost 40 kilos.When he moved from Palo Alto to Boston, he changed his habits, started exercising and stopped eating meat. Born in Soligorsk, Belarus, in 1984, in a family that worked in local mines potassium, trained at the American University in Bulgaria, a training center of leaders.With his studies of Economics and Business Administration, did an internship at JP Morgan before departing towards new technologies and soon saw the hidden face of tecnoutópico speech.He is the author of The heartbreak Internet (2012) and The Madness of technological solucionismo (Key Intellectual, 2015).
You actually do want to change? I want to change many things. The draft oppose the power of big business, which has traditionally been the prerogative of the left, and do not understand how the domain works today, because they do a good analysis of the technology and are not able to build or reclaim infrastructure they have been delivered with privatization.Without adequate political reading of how it fits Silicon Valley in all this, they can not resist the power of corporations. If you take a Yanis Varoufakis, which probably is the face of opposition to the neoliberal agenda in Europe is a great guy, with interesting things to say, but their understanding of the technological dimension of ?: zero modern neoliberal project. Take Syriza, or can, or many other actors who try to oppose the neoliberal capitalism today. They have a problem to understand that, for me, is the most important feature of capitalism today: its nature phenomenon propelled by digital information technologies.
And then … The least ambitious of my tasks would at least put these issues on the table so they can reflect on them who are opposed to the current neoliberalism led by large companies; get him to listen to some people who are engaged in a great confusion about the status of the current things that not even discussed anything because they believe that the old division of the tribe of the left and passed, who think that capitalism will be replaced a collaborative economy, a society pospoder, very flat …
I do not know if this is a good summary, but listening, it seems you now questioning neoliberalism more than Silicon Valley. Yes, it’s a good summary.For me Silicon Valley is an effect, not the cause, of neoliberalism. There are some structural changes in capitalism which are connected with technology. It would be wrong to think that all other factors that have shaped the landscape in which policy is made have become obsolete. It is important to clear the connection of Silicon Valley with the US military, which still provides much of the money.
What Silicon Valley? A Silicon Valley, at startups , robotics, biotechnology , facial recognition …
What does this mean? That the traditional factor analysis to explain the world, which was always the war, militarization, it has not disappeared. Silicon Valley now represents some structural forces that were identified long ago. War, Wall Street … Where does all that money spent on stupid startups ? It ‘s amazing that anyone who wants to create an app in Silicon Valley can raise 10 million dollars in an afternoon. You have to understand changes in the global economy. Why has redirected much money in the real economy, factories, investment in the productive sector, to the speculative financial capital? Our pension funds no longer invest in insurance bonds state but in other funds that reinvest in venture capital firms that reinvest in startups . You can focus the analysis in Silicon Valley, but you have to understand what makes it possible.
You studied at a university with liberal ideological foundations, but somehow influences on his political vision the fact of having been educated in Belarus? Belarus did not influence too much in my political education. It is an interesting place because Europe has managed to freeze time. I do not deny human rights violations and lack of freedom of expression. But freeze time, as away of preventing the neoliberal making industry, it is interesting, historians will study. In any case, my view has nothing to do with the fact of growing up in Belarus. I am left, but left conscious of the dangers of centralization of power and inflexibility.
And in another vein, the terrorist attacks in Paris have reawakened the old debate about the limits of privacy and security. How come face to face this issue? Empirical evidence shows that it is very difficult to say that advanced surveillance techniques implemented in Europe and North America has long been paid off. We see no evidence to suggest that the ability of intelligence services to monitor the activities of terrorists or known suspects, people who have been on the radar of work safety laws already quite permissive, has achieved much. So I have no reason to believe they will be more efficient if they go down that road.
More and more Spanish companies are making the leap to the cloud, albeit very slowly because of the uncertainty of the new technology. There are smart ways to take the plunge
More than 80% of large companies will use in 2018 environments cloud hybrid, sccording to a report by consultancy IDC. L exes to be a dominant technology environment, organizations are now evolving into a combination of different models of technology including cloud models from different vendors and legacy own infrastructure.
In this new technological context, the model of outsourcing or IT in-housetraditional is losing weight in favor of flexible service models, particularly the technology in the cloud. In fact, the budget for these traditional models will rise from 57% today to 43% in the next two years, while intended to cloud models will rise from 43% today to 57%.
It is a fact that more and more Spanish companies are making the leap to the cloud, although all experts consulted indicate that they are doing it very slowly because of the uncertainty generated face a new technology and ultimately to a change of paradigm. And is that cloud computing offers advantages that can not compete datacenters traditional: allowed to grow without having to worry about infrastructure, offers the possibility to access from any time, place and device, accelerates processes and, most importantly, infinitely it reduces costs because you only pay for what you use and eliminates the costs involved in maintaining physical facilities.
The first thing to tackling this transition is not so much the size of the company, but of how much data we talking about and what use of technology is going to sue
The magazine Business Review Harward has come to compare the cloud with the jump from steam to electric power which involved many advantages for factories. However, facing this process of change is not easy.
Towards a ‘cloud’ strategy
IDC predicted a couple of years ago that 70% of CEOs will change to a strategy cloud first 2016. The main problem that managers of both large and small and medium enterprises face is what specific services migrate . Today, virtually any IT service for different internal and external public cloud can be. But not in all cases it should be done immediately.
Explains Faustino Jiménez, CEO of Itconic, a technology company expert inmanaged services on cloud . “There is no solution or universal formula that serves equally to all companies that want to migrate your data to the cloud simply because each case is unique . a good analysis of the current situation of company systems is vital. ”
In this sense, the first thing that must be taken into account when facing this transition is not so much the size of the company, but of how much data we talking about and what use of technology is going to sue. For those cases in which it is calculated that the level of technology use will be low (for example, the self-employed), it is recommended to use cloud-based such as Office 365, Google Docs or WorkDocs products between others, that allow you to gain flexibility and price. If, however, is understood to be higher (SMEs or large companies that do not consume a lot of technology), it is further desirable to use cloud-based platform and a little more complex online management systems that complement the above. In this case there are multiple options such as Direct Invoice (online billing program designed for small businesses) or ContaPlus.
Finally, those SMEs or large companies that consume a large volume of technology must, before migrating directly much of their applications to the cloud, evaluate its strategy to make the best decisions based on the specific needs of each business.
Better start progressively
For Fernando Black, CEO of CloudMas, startup Spanish that offers consulting services in the cloud and the only Premier Consulting Partner of Amazon Web Services that are in Spain, “the first steps in the cloud can become a daunting experience if not do properly. therefore, before performing any migration is necessary to plan a strategy, have clear objectives, what it is the degree of criticality risks or outside the computer and see what apps want to move to the cloud. ”
In this sense, Black believes that “we must remember that there are three major sets of applications: you can not migrate because they are an older technology and is not safe to move them , which it is convenient to do so because they offer a great return but require much work, and that for their technical characteristics or the strategy of the company is necessary. An example of these we have in most involving mass storage or high levels of data processing as big data “.
In any case, always according to the CEO of CloudMas, it is best to start gradually. Conducting pilot tests with partial migrations with little or no impact on the ongoing operations in small groups of users and the simplest applications.
“Many large customers start to bet on the cloud for a case such as when they have to make a project of big data. In these cases a study of return on investment, a small test and finally the migration occurs. In the moment when tested in this way save time and money is when they decide to build a mass migration strategy , “adds Fernando Black.
What kind of cloud choose?
The next step is to choose the type of cloud: public, private or hybrid. The public cloud is one that is available to the general public and is run by a third party. In Spain include, among others, Gigas or Arsys, both aimed at SMEs. Among the biggest are Amazon Web Services, Azure, SoftLayer or 1 & 1. The private cloud for its part is in an infrastructure on demand, managed for a single client.
There are many differences between public and private cloud, such as the capacity of the infrastructure that is counted. In the public cloud resources are flexible and practically unlimited, while private depend solely on the organization and investment has been made, so it is rarely useful to scale large amounts of data. By having more servers public is also more reliable because it is more unlikely to suffer falls. On the other hand, costs are also different. The public cloud does not require initial investment and is usually cheaper since the services are shared by many users, while private costs are derived from the capacity and performance of each company.
The third option is, recommended when you want to keep a portion of your data in a private environment (such as personal data of your customers), and other public one hybrid cloud.
According Faustino Jimenez, “hybrid cloud is the logical first step in any large organization towards a model cloud . With the transition easily migratable environments to the cloud companies gain immediately in flexibility, productivity and cost savings. This type of cloud is also useful for those cases where you can not use the public either for safety reasons, because your programs are not prepared to run that kind of network or because you prevent the data Protection Act. ”
The safest option
According to the latest IDC report, although security remains a priority for organizations since the data come increasingly from their environment, most companies appreciate that resources devoted to safety by their suppliers are greater than which can allocate internally. Consequently, 68% of organizations believes that Cloud vendors are safer than their own department of information technology.
Despite the heavy security that used by most companies that offer these services, the fact is that the cloud is not a free technology malicious entities.Rather the complete opposite. Storing files and data is one of the main objectives of cybercriminals. Control of cloud security is not under our control, but we can take a number of precautions.
According Josep Albors, director of Education Technology Eset Spain, “it is best to find out if encrypt data from the source and from there send them to the cloud, or if instead send them in plain text and encrypted once migrated. it is also recommended that they have some kind of certificate. Although not infallible at least you know that a certified third party who have taken security measures. Finally, it is also advisable to check how access to the cloud occurs. If with username and password is insufficient. it is best to use two – factor authentication or even triple depending on what the data is. ”
