I encourage you to obtain a copy of the Financial Post Business April 2006 magazine on news stands ONLY on April 7, 2006 as an insert in the National Post newspaper.

For the article on IT security threats, Microsoft security expert Derek Wong provides his valued insights. Derek will also be speaking about the top 10 security threats at INFORMATICS 2006 held in Victoria May 28th to 30th.

CIPS has partnered with the National Post in the creation of a special technology section to appear in the April 2006 issue of the Financial Post Business magazine (to hit the streets ONLY on April 7 as an insert of the National Post newspaper).  This special technology section will include the following:

  • a profile of leading CIOs, focusing on their challenges, vision and what they need from their suppliers (ENMAX CTO and former CIPS President Kevin Brown I.S.P. is one of the CIOs being profiled.  CIO of Canada Jim Alexander is another CIO being profiled.);
  • an article identifying the leading Information Technology (IT) security threats and how to avoid them (Among the security experts being quoted: Dr. Tom Keenan I.S.P. Tom is a former CIPS Certification Council member and a speaker at this year's CIPS INFORMATICS 2006 event in Victoria; and
  • an article on the rising importance of IT governance (The CIOs who participated in the CIPS/RIS/Brown Governance CIO Roundtable held last November in Toronto have been quoted.  Allstream VP of IT and former CIPS Nova Scotia President Andrew Morrisey I.S.P. has also been quoted.).

As part of the partnership between CIPS and the National Post, CIPS has a feature page with an I.S.P. and an INFORMATICS 2006 sidebar.

The CIPS page contains the article, "IT Governance: An Opportunity or Hindrance?" by CIPS VP John Boufford I.S.P.

The Financial Post (FP) Business magazine reaches over 1.2 million readers each month.

  • I'm looking forward to this edition. Will it be made available online?

  • That’s a good question. I wish the issue would be available online. However I believe it’s only available on news-stands on the date mentioned.

    I would be remiss also not to mention the fine work by Mylene Sayo, PR Manager, and the team at CIPS National led by Executive Director, Mary Jean Kucerak for making this all possible. It’s a tremendous collaboration providing value to the profession, businesses, and IT professionals. In particular, I want to highlight CIPS VP and I.S.P., John Boufford’s feature article on “IT Governance: An Opportunity or Hindrance.”

    Cheers,
