Data breach regulation is coming -- is your organization ready? My colleague +Kyle Flaherty has written a good post to introduce the subject and tell you what's at stake.

Data breaches are in the news nearly everyday, and governments throughout the world are looking to create compliance legislation to protect individuals. But this regulation takes different forms. What is your company doing to get ready for pending data breach compliance rules?

Starting a tech-oriented G+ circle -- NOT social-media related -- where I can share interesting stories (including from my employer, BreakingPoint Systems).

I'll be selective about adding people to this circle -- so please tell me if you'd like to be included.

(Not you, +Jennifer Leggio -- you're included by default. ;)

Are you taking advantage of the thriving project management community on Twitter? And which great PMs did I leave out of my article?
Twitter is a haven for active online conversation around project management and managing projects, but you have to follow the right kinds of accounts — and thus interact with the right people — if you want to get the most …<br /><a href="">Read »</a>

This article gives some good insights into high-frequency trading environments and the cyber security threats they face, although -- as with many articles like this -- it tends to portray cyber threats in tones that are a bit too cloak-and-dagger for my taste.

The short version is that these low-latency high-frequency trading environments . . .

1. Are very important, especially because of the amount of money that traverses them every second of the day.

2. Aren't much regulated.

3. Aren't nearly as well understood as traditional networks from a security perspective.

4. Are going to get more important, not less.

If you want to know more about the issue, I also recommend a blog post by a colleague of mine, which talks about both her experience in testing low-latency network equipment and the broader challenges faced by operators of these networks:

The Elephants in the Room: Meeting the Challenges of Low Latency and High Volume for Financial Exchanges

If you want to know more about this (with or without any interest in my company's wares), please do let me know.

Basic Information
Ariel and the rest of the staff at Skybridge have done a WONDERFUL job of creating a vibrant learning environment where students' needs and interests come first. The whole Skybridge community embraces an individualized, inclusive approach to education that welcomes each person's strengths, weaknesses, and areas of interest. My kids are brilliant and funny, but they needed something different from even the great magnet programs in public schools; they have thrived at Skybridge, where their thirst for learning is satisfied in ways that honor their differences and celebrate their contributions. Parents of students who need a different approach to education should definitely talk with Ariel about whether Skybridge would be a fit for their children in 6th through 12th grade.
