Discover The CTU Experience
Like clockwork, when the New Year rolls around people everywhere resolve to make a fresh start. It makes sense. The slower pace of the holiday season that precedes the New Year is a perfect time for personal reflection. It’s during that time, your mind gravitates to the many things you wish you had done but never seemed to make time for.
As a project manager responsible for completing projects successfully and within scope, it’s imperative that you know the stakeholders. Stakeholders can be a person or organization with an interest in the project’s completion. This can be anyone from an influential customer, sponsor, the public or performing organization involved in the project.
One of the most difficult things law enforcement officers must do is to interview rape victims. They must be asked highly intrusive questions that force them to relive an extraordinarily painful experience. Yet the hard, cold fact is that cops aren’t therapists. Their primary goal is to capture the rapist and to keep another victim from going through the same pain.
In most organizations, the Chief Security Officer (CSO) or Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is responsible for alerting the Chief Information Officer (CIO) and other key executives of potential security risks related to the business’ critical Information Systems (IS) infrastructure and data. Another key responsibility is to mitigate cyber-attacks.
In previous posts, I’ve written about potential security threats you face when it comes to protecting your computer systems and data. In this post, we get personal as I share ideas for protecting your personal assets from digital vulnerabilities.
The word “smart” can be defined in many different ways. Such a seemingly simple word can mean anything from bright and quick-witted to the more negative connotation of being insolent. In the 1980s more meaning was added to this simple word when George Doran, Arthur Miller and James Cunningham used “smart” as an acronym to define a goal setting process to be used when managing people.
Anyone pursuing new professional opportunities these days understands that leveraging social media, and the identities established in the various communities, is critical for success. But does social media really work? Check out these statistics from an annual Jobvite survey.
I recently presented at the Trans-Border Narco-Terrorism Conference co-hosted by Angelo State University, Texas Tech and the Transborder International Police. The conference was a perfect example of regional collaboration between academia, public sector – both from the U.S. and Mexico – and the private sector. It was a success, not by virtue of the number of participants, but rather by who was present, the information shared, and discussion of the hard issues found at the nexus of narcotics trafficking, crime and terrorism.
The economy is slowly recovering. But what can be done to fix the challenges we are facing?
In early January, 2013, Forbes.com reported the flu had arrived nearly five weeks ahead of season, and was already active in over 41 states.
With the launch of our new master’s degree in homeland security, Colorado Technical University is sending a clear signal to all stakeholders in the field – from policymakers to players in the public and private sectors, and to all those staking their careers on some facet of this growing arena.

Big data is more than just hype from the tech world. The proliferation of information across multiple dimensions is real. It comes from everywhere, from cellphone GPS signals, to purchase records and to the updates we make to our favorite social media websites.
Is bringing a popular U.S. industry to Russia a good thing? The Burger King Corporation is attempting to find out. A recent Moscow Times article describes the Burger King Corporation’s strategy to increase competition with fast food rivals McDonald’s, KFC and Subway for a share of the Russian fast food market. Fast food is certainly not new to Russia but Burger King is late to the game, with Subway, McDonalds and KFC holding the top market share.
“Hey, @SeattlePD: What’s the Latest?” is the title of a New York Times article discussing one of the more interesting uses of social media by law enforcement. The article describes a new Seattle police department Twitter campaign that involves the agency launching 51 “hyper-local,” computer-automated Twitter accounts, in addition to their main profile. The project is called “Tweets-by-beat,” and it transforms the traditional police blotter into a real-time source of information, neighborhood by neighborhood.
If you’ve visited your doctor recently, you may have noticed some changes in your medical record and the accessibility of your medical record. There’s a lot less paper. That’s because many health care providers are taking advantage of an incentive program created by the Department of Health and Human Services to improve the overall quality of health care. These recent changes fall under the Meaningful Use criteria established by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid.
