Microsoft Cloud solution – Security, Auditing, Traceability and how do they react to data breach

You might have an interest in Microsoft cloud hosting security, auditing and / or data protection, just like me. I’ve collected a few good links, that should get you started.

First of, a little on how they react if breaches will happen, because they will at some point in some way. Major or minor…

Secondly, this white paper examines how Microsoft investigates, manages, and responds to security incidents within Azure.

Perspective of life

a friend of mine wrote this, which I encouraged to share with others, as it, at least for me holds, so much perspective that it would simply be a shame not to share that. Declining to do that, I asked if I could post it, which I was allowed as long as the author remained anonymous. So be it.

Life and love flashes just in front of you….There are no sure paths. If there’s one thing life has taught me, it’s that you can never predict how it’s going to turn out or what opportunities may rise unexpectedly. It’s good to ask questions and reach your own conclusions, because what if circumstances have changed and conventional wisdom is just flat-out wrong? It’s good to take stock and figure out what will make you the happiest, even if the answer is unique and makes your friends and acquaintances shake their heads. The sad truth is, sometimes people are judgmental.
Selling my house, “big” car, no tv, giving away tons of clothes and stuff etc etc made people think I was “crazy”. This was decisions leading me to a more authentic me…
If we make nonconformist decisions or hold nontraditional ideas, we’re going to catch a certain amount of heat, whatever our age. Not only that, but we’ll be making our own road maps as we go, which can be a solitary and scary endeavor. Sometimes we’ll fail spectacularly, and our failures will be all the more visible because we were trying something unusual — something people didn’t think we should be trying, or something people assumed we couldn’t make work. Even when we do succeed, people will try to belittle what we have accomplished. The conventional advice on this subject is that we shouldn’t care what people think, but sometimes we are going to care, no matter how hard we try to deny it. Therein lies the dark side to living a life outside the normal boundaries. It takes courage and self-respect, and sometimes it will sting in spite of ourselves. Sometimes we may weaken a little bit and wish we could be like everybody else…playing it safe!!!

Being like everyone else? We cannot convince ourselves to be. It’s so much more exciting and fulfilling to question, to think, to decide what we honestly want and plot our own route to achieve it. It’s exhilarating to take risks and feel the buzzing, growing vitality of being alive and creating our own life stories. When I falter, I remind myself of how happy I am to have the power of choice, to be able to do what I love so much of the time, and to belong to a network of people who trust and love me to be me, no matter what choices (or even mistakes) I’m making……

Criticism – Organizational/Personal – Perspective

This article will give you some perspective on criticism. Both in the form of understanding, but also as a tool to work with. This has been referenced from the idea development post, as criticism can also be a tool to refine ideas.

Idea Development – Organizational – Perspective

The objective of this document is to enable management to develop and evaluate employee ideas on a constructive level and provide a positive feedback that will encourage employees to try again and again. The concept is to have employees feel that they are a part of the entire organization, rather than just an item in the block. Contributing to future development, as well as being a resource for progress for the organization.
Furthermore the goal is to ensure development of personal skills for the individual in respect to self realization needs.

The Lite – Organizational Development

Some time back I had an idea on how to organize a company. I was sick and tired of all the backhand agreements made, the muttering around the coffee machine. The benefits some got, but not all. The managers constant trying to escape paying more, always arguing for paying less. From that I devised a concept which should be able to remove all that – at least in theory.

I haven’t been able to work further with this concept, so I wanted to release this for public inspiration. As I believe the concept itself is strong and deserves further work. I will continue working with this when I get time, but anyone interested can take the idea and work further with it. Either in a separate document with due reference to original author and referenced contributors.

Any comments, feedback is welcome at any stage! 🙂

The Lite concept is about reducing any organization to the minimum required, using a standardized approach in any aspect of the organization, making it easier to navigate, with less things to consider in the daily work. The Lite concept is not about earning more money, but making the money necessary to exist. Working in an environment that empowers the individual, to reap the benefits of good times and encourages to work harder in bad times.
The first Lite concept introduced is OrgLite, which is an organizational hierarchy based on the Lite concept.
