Every day, people make choices about the things they value.
Recycling versus sending it to a landfill.
Riding the bus versus driving to work.
Bringing your own bag to the grocery store versus using plastics.
These choices collectively define who we are, how the world sees us, but more importantly; how we see ourselves.Read More

At Online Business Systems we have our feet in two different worlds – Digital Transformation and Cybersecurity. As you can guess, we get a lot of questions about how to plan for and incorporate a security strategy when designing and executing a digital transformation project (e.g. process automation, transforming to a paperless organization, incorporating AI, or a cloud migration.) I have read quite a few articles and blogs written on this topic recently and had a few thoughts of my own based on my experiences being on the front lines where we’ve seen security done well (and also, unfortunately, not so well.)Read More

In a world where autonomous systems are becoming more numerous, there is pressure to build similarly autonomous agents to observe these systems for anomalous behavior. Given the complexity of the systems, and the fact that it is not economically viable to employ humans to observe them, we must find a way of algorithmically solving this problem.Read More

Back in May, I had the chance to attend the WCISC conference in Winnipeg and listen to James Comey share his thoughts on security, leadership and integrity. If you’ve had the opportunity to hear James Comey speak, regardless of your political persuasion, I think you’ll agree with me – he is an excellent communicator. Over the hour session he shared many humorous and impactful stories about his role as the Director of the FBI and the direction that his life has taken.Read More
We hear a lot about the pace of change and the increasingly sophisticated threats facing organizations today. You don’t have to look much further than the daily headlines to read about new ways of doing business, or the latest successful data breach.
What’s becoming very clear is that Cybersecurity is not a sprint, but rather a marathon.
Each leg of the race presents new challenges and requires a commitment to diligence, risk management, and continuous program improvement. What we’ve done in the past is now proving to be insufficient and ineffective for the unpredictable terrain ahead. Different threat landscapes requires different solutions …and occasionally you need to stop, rest, and re-hydrate along the way.
Digital Transformation has become quite the industry buzzword. It’s become a goal for most organizations to achieve, yet more than half of these attempts are unsuccessful. What is it that prevents a successful digital transformation? If you’re not one of the companies that has already failed or is on the verge of failure; keep reading to ensure you too, don’t become part of that rapidly growing statistic.Read More

From Finance and Energy—to Agriculture and Education; enterprise companies everywhere are reaping the cost-saving benefits of having a well-designed and maintained Design System.
But what exactly is a Design System? Why is it important to have one? How do you begin to implement and maintain one, and when should you consider building one for your organization?Read More
