Ideas from the leading technology analyst and research firm
Many if not all IT providers openly support and endorse the NIST Cybersecurity Framework published in 2018. While laudable, supporting and endorsing an industry standard does not automatically equate to their products delivering on these standards. If anything, organizations should exercise caution as to what any IT provider’s support of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework really means and how it applies to the solutions they offer.
I travel quite a bit around the US and, lately, even around the world, in my role as a principal analyst and CEO for DCIG. However, my experiences on my current trip to Recife, Brazil, are a little outside of the norm as I am staying in Recife, Brazil, in an AirBnB that primarily targets Portuguese-speaking Brazilians. This has forced me to know at least some Portuguese to operate (i.e., buy and order food and hail Ubers.) Further, my experiences with stray horses and the Omaha Hamburgueria may not align with what one might expect if staying at a resort specifically targeted at English-speaking tourists.
This week and next I find myself in the northeast part of Brazil in the coastal city of Recife. My oldest son’s engagement to a wonderful woman from this part of the world sparked my interest in coming here. She does plan to move to the United States once she completes the immigration process. However, my wife and I wanted to better understand her background and culture of Brazil. To do so, we came to Brazil to visit her. Having now stayed here about a week, here are my TOP 5 general observations so far from my current trip to Recife, Brazil.
