There’s Just No Excuse
The recent court case Brown v. Tellermate Holdings, Ltd. has illustrated that the term “ignorance is bliss” unfortunately doesn’t hold much weight in the United States legal system anymore. In a marked change from past practices where organizations contracted with outside vendors to handle their technology needs, the ruling determined that businesses have a responsibility to have at least a basic understanding of the systems being utilized by their employees. This specific instance (that of a company using a cloud solution) had to do with the ownership of the data in question; showing that the corporate leadership had no idea how the technology worked on it’s most fundamental level.
As data breaches and other technology-based problems arise, the legal requirements on organizations will only increase. Cloud computing is no longer the Wild Wild West of a few years ago, today it has evolved into a mature enterprise grade tool that will be in use for decades to come. But in this era of rapidly changing technology, how does the average leader keep up with the fundamentals? Most tech savvy vendors unfortunately don’t like to divulge the inner workings of their products, lest their clients manage to go out and compare them to other products.
