TED TALLEY: For the greater good

The deadly covid surge and the related, stymied vaccination campaign have me lately thinking of the mid-20th century — literally in the middle of, not retro kitchen decor — when children and adults were required to get polio vaccines. To avoid paralysis or death, we took the medicine. It was simple and for the greater good.

I don’t recall my first polio injection or the small pox one, though I still have the pox scar on my shoulder. But the memory of the sugar cube of the later, more effective Sabin vaccine is vivid. In 1962 we assembled at the junior high gymnasium in my Louisiana hometown. No protest banners waved on the playground. No angry shouts. At the dawn of the space race, science was respected.

Hundreds of tiny white paper cups, like those for ketchup at the malt shop, held bright pink sugar cubes. We kids were happy.

The lack of women in cybersecurity puts us all at greater risk

Women are highly underrepresented in the field of cybersecurity. In 2017, women’s share in the U.S. cybersecurity field was 14{13aab5633489a05526ae1065595c074aeca3e93df6390063fabaebff206207ec}, compared to 48{13aab5633489a05526ae1065595c074aeca3e93df6390063fabaebff206207ec} in the general workforce.

The problem is more acute outside the U.S. In 2018, women accounted for 10{13aab5633489a05526ae1065595c074aeca3e93df6390063fabaebff206207ec} of the cybersecurity workforce in the Asia-Pacific region, 9{13aab5633489a05526ae1065595c074aeca3e93df6390063fabaebff206207ec} in Africa, 8{13aab5633489a05526ae1065595c074aeca3e93df6390063fabaebff206207ec} in Latin America, 7{13aab5633489a05526ae1065595c074aeca3e93df6390063fabaebff206207ec} in Europe and 5{13aab5633489a05526ae1065595c074aeca3e93df6390063fabaebff206207ec} in the Middle East.

Women are even less well represented in the upper echelons of security leadership. Only 1{13aab5633489a05526ae1065595c074aeca3e93df6390063fabaebff206207ec} of female internet security workers are in senior management positions.

I study online crime and security issues facing consumers, organizations and nations. In my research, I have found that internet security requires strategies beyond technical solutions. Women’s representation is important because women tend to offer viewpoints and perspectives that are different from men’s, and these underrepresented perspectives are critical in addressing cyber risks.

Teachers for Tomorrow’s Schools (TTS) is comprised of combined credential and MA applications that prepare expert, reflective, collaborative, and visionary teachers who are committed to improving K-12 education in urban schools. Understanding how to navigate the net with discernment is the most pressing cultural mission of our age.” So asserts Matthew D’Ancona , political columnist for the Guardian and the New York Occasions, in his timely and passionately argued new book, Post-Truth: The War on Truth and How to Fight Back D’Ancona writes that he sees his book as an exploration of the declining worth of truth as society’s reserve currency” and asks: So what takes place when lies not only proliferate but also seem to matter significantly less – or even not at all?” We met with D’Ancona in June, when he spoke at the OECD Forum in Paris.
