From Calcutta to Grace Hopper—how the tide is changing – IT Showcase Blog

Numbers don’t lie, and they don’t judge. They don’t care if you’re a woman, or where you grew up, or if you speak with an accent.

These are some of the thoughts I’ve had after speaking at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Conference and the Women in Statistics and Data Science Conference. After my presentations, I met with diverse groups of young women who are entering fields rooted in math and science. They wanted to know how I got here, what kind of training I’ve had, how I got on the management track, and how I came to lead a data analytics team at Microsoft.

I was honored and humbled by the experience. I was also proud, not about where I’ve come, but that the questions they are asking at the beginning of their careers are different than the ones I asked at the beginning of mine. Instead of wondering if they could pursue a career in data analytics, they asked me what steps they should take to become a leader in the data analytics field.

And while the questions are different now, and women and people of diverse backgrounds have more opportunities than when I was coming up, we have much more work to do. The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) field is still dominated by men, and even more so the senior or technical roles. For a variety of reasons, girls are not choosing to study these subjects in school as often as boys do, and when they do, they are still fighting for equality in many ways.

Yet despite all of this, I firmly believe the tide is turning, and that, if we keep pushing hard for more opportunities, there is reason for optimism. All I must do is look back at how I persisted in my journey from Calcutta, India, to Redmond, Washington, and then think back to the young people I met at Grace Hopper and Women in Statistics and Data Science to know this is true.

Making the numbers add up

Growing up in India in the 1960s and 70s, it was typical for more emphasis to be placed on boys—they were encouraged to go into STEM fields, whereas girls were typically expected to study humanities (literature, history, etc.). If you were lucky like me, and you had progressive parents who could afford private school, you absolutely went to an all-girls school where you could mostly pursue your career of choice (contending with some raised eyebrows if you leaned toward math and science). I attended all-girls schools from childhood all the way through getting my undergraduate degree in economics at Lady Brabourne College in Calcutta. It was only when I got my master’s degree in econometrics at Calcutta University that the classes I took were integrated with men.

You would think that attending a private school meant I would have a leg up on getting into a STEM field, but to me it felt like something I had to fight for every day. In secondary school, I remember we had only one math class and one science class per day, compared to plenty of writing, literature, and humanities classes. In primary school, my father always used to complain that we didn’t have enough math homework. At one of my parent-teacher conferences, he complained to the teacher, and the next day she gave us a bunch of extra math homework. The other students were like, “What’s with all the math?” My teacher looked at me, and said “you can thank Sarmila’s dad for that.”

This kind of subtle, limiting thinking continued throughout. When I was ready to graduate with my undergraduate degree in economics, I went to get a letter of recommendation for graduate school, and one of my professors actually blurted out, “When are you going to start a family?” Eventually, it worked out. I persisted enough to get my master’s degree, moved to the United States to get my doctorate, and launch myself into a career that eventually landed me at Microsoft.

Fly like an eagle

All my life, until I finished my Ph.D., I had a poster of an eagle flying alone in the twilight sky. That eagle was my talisman, always reminding me that, “In Life, Your Attitude Determines Your Altitude.” Working in tech in my era, I learned to tough it out, to hold on to my dreams, and to pick my battles. When things get challenging, I always think back to that eagle.

When I was talking to those young women at those conferences, I told them, “at times, even today, you’ll face stereotypical attitudes—you need to keep pushing for change. We all have come a long way on our circuitous journey. The tides are changing, and women are now ahead of where they used to be. But that said, firm conviction in yourself is your best ally.”

On cloud-first policy, not all companies are equal

Cloud guru Daryl Plummer had some weighty numbers to share with the CIOs and other IT folks at Gartner’s Symposium/ITxpo in Orlando, Fla., earlier this month: By the end of the year, 77% of organizations will have adopted some type of cloud computing. And by 2019, nearly 90% will be using cloud.

“Cloud-first is the mantra for the day,” said Plummer, a Gartner fellow and research chief. He was referring to the policy many organizations are adopting that requires them to choose cloud computing for new tech iniatives unless there’s some reason, regulatory or otherwise, not to. “Maybe next it’ll be cloud-only. But today we’re still in a cloud-first mode.”

Well, some organizations are — and they’re blazing a path in the cloud, seeking and even reaping vaunted benefits such as lower overhead costs, near-zero maintenance, and the ability to quickly experiment and scale up or down in response to even the ficklest business demand.

Judging by IT leaders attending the conference, though, organizations today vary widely on whether they’ve adopted a cloud-first policy, the types of cloud services they’ve taken on, the pace at which they’re adopting them and how they’re rolling them out. And some are — to use Plummer’s term — lingering in the “cloud-maybe” phase.

‘An enabler’

PBF Energy, for example, a petroleum refining company in Parsippany, N.J., is in a “very conservative industry,” said director of applications Yael Urman, and has just started moving pieces of its IT and business operations to the cloud.

I think cloud is not a target, but it’s an enabler. My target is to bring value or to add to the top line and the bottom line.
Yael Urmandirector of applications, PBF Energy

The company uses a cloud infrastructure deployment by Amazon Web Services as an archive and moved to Workday’s cloud application for human resources a few months ago. Beyond that, business applications are on physical servers, and as yet there is no strategy for moving to cloud, Urman said.

“Previously we liked everything on prem, and now we understand that there are more options and we should consider them,” she said.

Indeed, PBF Energy is mulling a cloud-first policy. Now, for example, the company uses SAP’s enterprise resource planning system — traditional, server-bound software. But when the time comes to renew the hardware that software sits on, it may consider a switch to a cloud infrastructure service and building ERP on that.

Changing the company’s IT focus to cloud would suit PBF Energy, Urman said, because the company grows by acquisition, so computing power could be easily ramped up as refineries are added.

And cloud makes business sense, she said. Today, PBF Energy hooks sensors on field equipment to the device-connected internet of things for information on machine wear and tear. In the future, technologies such as artificial intelligence, which requires the storage capacity and processing power cloud can provide, could be layered on top to refine data collection efforts and make smarter parts-replacement decisions, potentially saving hundreds of millions of dollars. Cloud for cloud’s sake is the wrong way to go, Urman argued.

“I think cloud is not a target, but it’s an enabler,” she said. “My target is to bring value or to add to the top line and the bottom line.”

Cloud exploration

Bill Schneider is also from the slow-to-cloud oil and gas industry. And like Urman, the vice president of IT at Pioneer Energy Services in San Antonio, is eyeing cloud technologies to someday house and crunch vast amounts of sensor data — and tap new business value.

But the company, which offers drilling and well services, has a way to go. It has a private cloud implementation and is piloting applications in the public cloud “to get a better understanding of how we could move some of our critical infrastructure there.” As for current critical company data or applications in the public cloud: “We haven’t taken that leap yet,” Schneider said.

Pioneer Energy Services also hasn’t yet tapped the cloud for a popular use: trying new things. But Schneider is not blind to the wisdom of doing innovation in the cloud over the alternative: buying a server, setting up networking and building software.

“That’s where we would put it, honestly,” he said. “If we were to develop something, especially in the digital space, I think it has to live on the cloud.”

Cloud-first policy in motion

BECU, the fourth largest credit union in the U.S., is farther along on the journey to cloud. Julie Wesche, vice president of technology operations at the Tukwila, Wash., financial institution, is working to “get out of the data center business.”

That entails examining the whole range of as-a-service options — software, infrastructure and developer-centric platform — and determining where they might fit in BECU’s IT operations, Wesche said. The company is also looking at the possibility of using colocation facilities, or colos — data centers that rent physical space for servers, power and cooling — for other parts of its IT environment.

So far, Wesche sees a lot of room for more SaaS — human resources and recruiting are good matches, for example. Applications requiring colo cloistering are fewer. Those include systems with information that can’t move to the cloud because of regulatory compliance, because the information is too sensitive or because the technology is not compatible with a cloud provider’s.

“We’re having a lot of conversations with vendors,” Wesche said. The credit union has persuaded some vendors to develop applications for cloud. Legacy systems, though, are a no-go. “Some of them, because of what they are, the vendors will not support them.”

BECU is 26% in the cloud and more than 90% virtualized — and that’s helping it to become a cloud-centric, post-data-center organization, Wesche said. Could it ever hit the all-cloud mark or close to it?

“Out there, out there. I think we’ll end up with a majority in the cloud over the next 18 months,” she said. “But yes, I think it will be the exception that would be in a colo space.”

Equifax breach response deemed insufficient in multiple ways

The Equifax data breach compromised the personal data, including Social Security numbers, of 148 million Americans, but experts are critical of how the company responded to the incident.

The Equifax breach was detected on July 29 but was not disclosed until Sept. 7. After the disclosure, Equifax came under fire after reports surfaced that executives had sold stock in the company prior to the breach disclosure, and because language in the terms of service stipulating that victims who take advantage of the TrustedID credit and identity monitoring service could not sue if that service were to fail.

Despite these issues, the CEO of Equifax, Richard Smith did not comment on the situation  — beyond a brief video posted with the initial announcement — until Sept. 12. Smith claimed the Equifax breach disclosure took six weeks from the time of detection in order to give time for the investigation and because the company “thought the intrusion was limited.”

“As of Tuesday [Sept. 12], more than 15 million people have visited the website and 11.5 million are enrolling in credit file monitoring and identity theft protection,” Smith wrote in a public statement published by USA Today. “We took the unprecedented step of offering credit file monitoring and identity theft protection to every U.S. consumer. Every consumer, whether affected or not, has the option of signing up for the services.”

Protection and monitoring

The identity protection service offered by Equifax was limited to one year of protection, which has been standard in incidents similar to the Equifax breach, but experts said was not sufficient.

Peter Tran, general manager and senior director at RSA, said, turning off the protections to those affected by the Equifax breach after one year “would be like turning off a pilot’s instruments mid-flight.”

“From a cyber defense perspective, pervasive visibility and continuous monitoring is imperative for both known cyber threats and suspicious digital movements and for any breach of this magnitude due care should extend to the affected consumers and/or end users,” Tran told SearchSecurity via email. “The bottom line is no one knows at this point the extent and duration [of] this incident’s exposure and risk.”

Equifax’s security was lax and allowed a huge breach, but one of their responses to the breach can now exacerbate and enlarge the harm impact of the breach.
Rebecca HeroldCEO, Privacy Professor

Ferruh Mavituna, CEO of Netsparker, said a Social Security number (SSN) “is for life and it is very difficult to have it changed.”

“The majority of people do not change their SSN, even in the case of an identity theft. They do not want to deal with the paperwork, bureaucracy, the police, etc.

So one year of ID monitoring is not enough to protect the victims in the long run,” Mavituna told SearchSecurity. “The SSNs will still have the same value one year down the line, so the attackers just have to wait until the numbers are no longer being monitored and the victim stops keeping a close eye on the number to use them.”

A number of experts noted that Equifax stands to profit off of the identity and credit monitoring services if enough victims continue to use the product after the free year has passed.

Eduard Goodman, global privacy officer of CyberScout, said with just one year of service, “Equifax is offering to monitor their own files on all of us, which is essentially free to them, then go on to make a profit on offering credit and fraud monitoring in the subsequent years.”

“The personal data exposed in the Equifax breach are truly the keys to the kingdom for identity theft,” Goodman told SearchSecurity. “Those records for millions of Americans will end up on the dark web, for sale to cyber criminals who can use your name, birth date and SSN to perpetrate a variety of scams. Often, the consumer is on their own, trying to repair the harm to their finances.”

Equifax breach ramifications

Rebecca Herold, CEO of Privacy Professor, said the impact of the Equifax breach “goes so far beyond just the SSNs.”

“The PINs of every one of the frozen personal records that Equifax has, whether or not they were included within the gargantuan breach, can now be determined by every person on the planet. Their format for creating PINs are so obvious; basically just the date you put a freeze on your account,” Herold told SearchSecurity. “Think about it; most folks putting a freeze on their account will do so soon after the breach was announced, making it not too hard for cybercrooks to just call up and remove the freeze. So Equifax’s security was lax and allowed a huge breach, but one of their responses to the breach can now exacerbate and enlarge the harm impact of the breach.”

Goodman said the Equifax breach should highlight the need to seriously rethink SSNs in terms of “verification and identity management in the 21st century.”

“The SSN has served us beyond what it was meant for and as a country. There are solutions that can be put into play. These include utilizing advanced biometrics, voice recognition, even typing pattern recognition. It will also involve the utilization of some combination of advanced encryption and blockchain technology,” Goodman said. “My concern is that the government will lean on a stale concept such as a national ID card or citizen ID number, both of which offer the same pitfalls as a SSN.”

Tran said identity management and authentication “should never be tied to a single point of failure and relying on data points alone such as birth dates, social security, driver’s license numbers and the like have posed challenges for many years.”

“This breach was the final knock-out punch to show a move to electronic identification (e-ID) multifactor identity and authentication technology, life cycle and governance platforms is long past due,” Tran said. “It’s likely going to spark aggressive legislative discussion on whether a new national e-ID program will be implemented to include the use of a unified smart card CHIP/PIN, RFID and/or biometric identification standard to reduce the current and future data exposure risks.”

Herold noted there are security and privacy risks in such e-ID programs as well as major logistical issues in moving away from SSNs.

“Some want to move to biometrics, but that will include not only technology challenges, but also significant privacy issues. A big challenge is that so many organizations, of all types and sizes, now use SSNs, and have used them for many decades. It would probably be a bigger challenge than moving the U.S. from [imperial measurements] to the associated metric units. Our ideas for how to do identification need to dramatically change from what we’ve been considering. We are stuck in an identity innovation rut and need to have a dramatically new idea, that is comparatively easy to switch to. Such inspiration has not yet been described, though.”
