commissum Sponsorship of Open University Student Prize

commissum is proud to again be the sponsor of the prize for the Open University Post Graduate module for Information Security Management; the M886 module. This is the second year that commissum has sponsored this prize.

The winner of the prize this year is Canadian student Sara Maharaj, from Ontario. Sara took the Information Security Management module as a standalone course for her professional development. The Information Security Management module is very focused on taking a practice-based approach; this encourages the student to base what they do upon an organisation that they are familiar with.

The course provides the foundation knowledge, understanding, analysis and synthesis needed to develop a practical information security management system (ISMS), to the standard set by the ISO/IEC 27001:2005 and BS ISO/IEC 17799:2005. It also targets helping the students acquire the personal development skills that they need to keep abreast of important developments in the rapidly changing field of Information Security.

Sara, having successfully undertaken the course as the top student, said:

“The course provides valuable insights into how to strategically manage information security within the organization. The practical exercises force you to think through a methodical implementation of the ISO 27001 standard, which facilitates excellent learning.”

Managing Director at commissum, Martin Finch, is a keen advocate of this practical approach to learning. He said:

“When students are given the opportunity to apply what they learn during the course of the module, it not only reinforces the lesson and benefits them and their respective organisations, but also instils a sense of great satisfaction”.

Last year’s joint winners were Ian Knight and Sally Anderson. Ian Knight who graduated with a BA/BSc Open Degree took the Information Security Management course as the last step in his degree journey. Ian works for a major Telecoms provider, with responsibility for Information Assurance on large client contracts. He said:

“The course materials were some of the best that I have encountered in the OU and in other study; I found the course to be of immediate practical use in my work almost from the start of the first unit”.

Sally Anderson, who is Head of Web and IT in a leading University, also commented on the practical nature of the course, saying “I have directly applied the new knowledge and skills to my work already and have the confidence now to advise and manage information security on behalf of my organisation”.

“Data Dynamite” Published; How Liberating Information Will Transform Our World

Innovative, cheap ways to use real-time data plus removing restrictions to it will help companies make better decisions, streamline and improve government, and empower the public, according to “Data Dynamite,” published today.

datadynamite.jpg (288×419)

The book, subtitled “how data will transform our world,” was written by “data dude” W. David Stephenson, and published by Data4All Press. It is available in e-book and print versions.

The book draws parallels between a potential explosion in uses for data if it becomes accessible to everyone and if new tools make it easy to share and understand, and how publishing of new works bloomed after Luther translated the Bible into German so ordinary people could understand it and printed it rather than having monks copy it. Stephenson says legitimate reasons made it hard for government and companies to gather, process, and disseminate data in the past. Technology removed the barriers, but the old “data scarcity” mentality prevails on the part of management and must be ended.

The book calls for a 4-step process to liberate data:

  • apply “tags” to it the first time it is entered, giving data meaning and context
  • distribute it automatically and in real time, when it will be of most use
  • make it available to everyone in an organization – and often outside it – who needs the data (rather than to just a few elites)
  • provide new Web 2.0 tools letting non-technical users analyze and act on data collaboratively.

The book is aimed at senior managers in business and government and at the general public.

“Data Dynamite” details a wide range of pioneering examples of liberating data, including:

  • online medical records
  • an “Internet of Things” prescription jar that notifies your doctor when you take a pill
  • a Mexican concrete company gaining competitive advantage by operating with real-time data,
  • and an online patient community which shares information on their conditions to help drug companies find cures.

Genes Reunited Releases Ship Passenger Records Online

Genes Reunited, the family history website, has announced that people will now be able to view passenger lists online. The lists include people onboard ships departing British ports for long-distance voyages across the world from 1890 to 1960.

The passenger records offer a range of information from simply the passenger’s name and age, to much more detailed information; the departure and destination ports, the ship’s name, date of travel as well as actual descriptions of the passengers themselves, such as, UK address, year of birth, marital status, occupation and nationality. Through these records it is possible to find some truly unique information about ancestors who voyaged overseas.

As well as the range of detail that can be found in these records, there are also some famous names which can be discovered, in particular Hollywood royalty such as a two year old Elizabeth Taylor, a 56 year old Alfred Hitchcock, a 22 year old Audrey Hepburn and finally a four year old Olivia Newton-John who was on her way from London to Australia.

The passenger records cover the period of mass migration to Australia between 1947 and 1960 when an estimated 710,000 people travelled there from Great Britain. This ‘golden age’ of migration to Australia was prompted by the launch of the Government’s ‘Ten Pound Pom’ scheme to encourage Britons to emigrate to Australia and enhance the nation’s skilled workforce driving its economy forwards.

Similarly to today, the records reveal a high number of retirees also travelled to Australia to spend the rest of their lives in the sun, with 17,385 retirees emigrating from the UK during the 1950s. Furthermore, 140,511 housewives travelled to Australia in the same decade. The records also show that there were 58 divorcees and 215 widowers listed who may have journeyed to the country to make a fresh start.

Rhoda Breakell, head of Genes Reunited, commented: “The wealth of passenger list records now available on Genes Reunited is an invaluable resource for people tracing relatives they believe may have left the UK from 1890 onwards. The passenger records may very well provide a missing link for many family historians who have hit a brick wall in their research, as well as helping those outside of the UK to trace back to their British and European heritage.”

The easily-searchable and user-friendly database on the family history site will enable would-be genealogists and family historians alike to view digitised images of the original ship passenger records online, which contain over 1.1 million pages, listing the 24 million passengers who travelled on long-distance journeys from UK ports.

Parcel2Go Simplifies Shipping For Amazon Marketplace Sellers

It has just become easier than ever for Amazon traders to give their customers access to a wide range of fast and efficient shipping options, thanks to the UK online parcel delivery specialist, Parcel2Go.

For years, Parcel2Go has been helping online businesses to offer delivery services from some of the world’s leading couriers through its free Application Programming Interface (API). The system can be integrated with a wide variety of e-commerce platforms, allowing a business’ customers to automatically access details of parcel delivery services once they have gone through the firm’s checkout process.

The API provides Amazon Marketplace sellers with a quick and simple way to manage their orders and book a specialist courier service. It enables businesses with an Amazon Seller account to download details of sold items, including shipping addresses, directly into a Parcel2Go account. Previously it was necessary to upload an Excel spreadsheet with sales data in order to take advantage of the service, but this is no longer the case thanks to the latest update from Parcel2Go.

Once Amazon sales details have been transferred into a company’s Parcel2Go account, the firm will have access to a wide range of domestic, European and worldwide delivery services from leading courier companies including FedEx, ParcelForce and DHL.

Richard Mercer, Head of Marketing at Parcel2Go, said: “The new system has been designed to make it quicker and simpler than ever for Amazon Marketplace sellers to stay on top of their shipping operation. Access to discounted shipping options are readily available and as couriers will pick up packages from a residential or commercial address at no extra charge, businesses will not have to spend time carting their goods to a post office.

“Parcel2Go is constantly looking for ways to help businesses make eBay parcel delivery or Amazon parcel delivery shipments for less, and we believe this new system for Amazon sellers really breaks new ground.”

Businesses using that want to take advantage of the API simply need to register with Parcel2Go, login to the ‘My Parcel’ section of their account and click on the ‘Integration’ tab. Further instructions on booking a cheap courier are provided by clicking Amazon Item Shipping.

Plusnet Launches Plusnet Pro

Plusnet has launched a new, additional bolt-on to its broadband packages called Plusnet Pro.

Plusnet Pro is now available to customers as a bolt-on to both Plusnet Value and Plusnet Extra broadband package for an additional £5 a month.

Plusnet Pro is a traffic prioritisation service perfect for gamers and home workers who want to make the best of their broadband experience. With Plusnet Pro, the user’s traffic is prioritised and maintains stable and reliable broadband at full speed across the entire day.

Having a prioritisation service means customers are guaranteed lower latency, so no matter how busy the network gets there will be no slowdown to their service, meaning customers can still experience uninterrupted downloads.

This is beneficial to those who game in real-time, utilise services such as Team Speak and interact with other players on-line using a fast broadband connection. Home workers using a company’s Virtual Private Network (VPN) can benefit from video conferencing with such services gaining precedence over the network.

This product development is unique to Plusnet and underlines the importance the ISP has always given to traffic management. Since 2007, Plusnet has carried detailed information on traffic management on its website. Following the recent call-to-action from the Broadband Stakeholder Group, Plusnet has committed to early adoption of the Key Facts Indicator and made this available to customers in April 2011.

Jamie Ford, CEO of Plusnet said: “Just like paying a little extra to do a fast check-in at the airport, Plusnet Pro is for users who want to ensure the best possible high performance internet experience even at busy times. With Fibre not yet available in many areas of the country this is the best service accessible to all the market to ensure lower latency and that you get the fastest speeds available to you regardless of when you’re online.
