Big Data & Cybersecurity
The CES 2019 in Las Vegas finished with having 182k visitors, 4,4k exhibitors and (!) 1k speakers. An electronic consumer fair focussing 2019 mostly on Internet of Things (IoT) and Tech with Artificial Intelligence (AI).
A revolution at home which makes it much easier for computers to do our work. So visitors expectations were high. But instead of flying cars they got software based “intelligent toilets” around $10Tsd.
Except this, other products presented could be tried out and discovered, stimulating the reward center in the brain and emitting neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine by feeling a spa-life at future home.
What has not been transmitted fully is the need of 5G for advanced IoT and a certain cybersecurity the big data which makes even toilets safe and not hackable.
To become serious, the cybersecurity and the privacy of big data will be the biggest challenge over the next couple of years.
As privacy is a state law related topic, big data & cybersecurity departments will become usual for every corporation to remain competitive in their branch. This implicates that every C-level manager should upgrade his knowledge to be able to transform his team.
Lets apply this to our topics Yachting, Real-Estate and Hospitality Industry. rep10_2
Property Builders experienced that "1st location, 2nd location, 3rd location" loose their importance. The catchy phrase "tech first" is growing, and with it the management of big data collected through mobile devices from housing or i.e. shopping mall clients. With it the need of knowledge using analyze tools and applying cybersecurity is growing. As a result the workflow of sales departments will change dramatically. Only who adapts himself to the NEW will survive the competition.
As the Hospitality Industry started years ago to collect and manage datas of clients, they already have skilled marketing and analytics teams who can jump easier into unsorted mass data produced by IoT. Identifying high-value clients in the Hotel business through an international database network to attracted these who spend more in additional services like fine dining, spa treatments, sports activities or entertainments than in simply checking in and checking out was the target. Some hotel groups already started successful to use their transactional and customer data across its chains, and combined it with unstructured data of SocialMedia.
Summary: there are already massive amounts of big data available – it is what each company does with it to increase sales or to survive the industrial disruption.
I had to talk lately about this topic in some Spanish business circles and I will write 2019 more about this focussing Yachting, Real-Estate and Hospitality Industry. Deeper going articles published in magazines will be linked here. 1903p

Are you always ON? You sleep with your data?
The digital era developed a mindset to be ‘always on’, because data never sleeps. And many C-Level executives manage their pocket-sized data around the clock and go to bed with it. A study published by economist.com has facts:
19% - as soon as they wake up
17% - before going to bed
…others - leave it at the office.
And almost every leader thinks they handle it quite well. This tells us that many leaders, especially the middle-aged upwards, are living in the past. 2398

Wordpress tripled vulnerabilities in 2018
An increase of 300% with 542 security glitches were mainly caused by bugs in plugins (98%) as reported. As a result we advise as always to reduce the amount of plugins, integrate them in the template, make a security or malware removal scan and don't update Wordpress earlier than the plugins.
Editors Note: I personally see 3 other problems you should be aware of.
• First the problem with the child version architecture, which won't get actualized with the update,
• then a missing control instance before distributing plugins on the WP platform as everybody can publish uncontrolled code making money with "open doors"
• and last but not least the last years leave of high qualified program coordinators because of dissonance with the development of the Gutenberg editor.
As advise for the IT responsible staff: stay up-to-date by installing a 404 tool grabbing all spider attends for plugin file search. 1786
Facebook Fake news reduced
Fake news has been shared on Facebook primarily by older, very conservative people in the US related to a study published in the science magazine advances.sciencemag.org. Yann LeCun, Chief AI Scientist bei Facebook commented:
TV Commercial written by artificial intelligence
When humans and machine work together incredible things can happen. That’s why the script of the TV Commercial for the new Lexus ES, a car which anticipates driver input, was entirely written by an AI and shot by an Oscar-award winning director.
They collected raw data around emotional human responses to these adverts and turned that into categories. From the data, the AI formed the ability to attempt to ‘turn on’ different emotions within a viewing human. They also commissioned a study in collaboration with MindX - an applied science division of the University of New South Wales, Australia - to examine the preferences of intuitive individuals for aspects of car adverts.

Well, even I don't see any mind penetration for prospective clients it sounds as a good step ahead. 2413
