Cybersecurity & Microsoft Business Information To Help Secure Your Company: TMSC International® Management & Leadership



A recent Microsoft email states:  

Cybersecurity covers the security of information, operations and computer systems. However, while the breadth of the definition varies, it is clear that cybersecurity issues have developed into significant national-level problems that now require government consideration, including the protection of assets, systems and networks vital to the operation and stability of a nation and the livelihood of its people.


Microsoft has produced a series of whitepapers deep diving into cybersecurity; each focusing on key information designed to help you navigate this ever changing topic.

Management and Leadership are positions of authority that require conflict resolution, critiquing, conferencing and other communication. Cameras are now as small as a cell phone. Company surveillance is a part of the security systems that secure expensive equipment, as well as monitor employee behavior.

Washington Monthly’s November 2009 issue has an article about how London has about a million surveillance cameras.

‘Two years ago I warned that we were in danger of sleepwalking into a surveillance society,’ said the British information commissioner. ‘Today I fear that we are in fact waking up to a surveillance society that is already all around us’ (Malanowski, 2009).

And employees in large and small companies are waking up to surveillance employment that is already all around us. Data bases that check the computer systems we use, some employment is terminated as a result of improper computer use.

Movies have been made that reflect the use of surveillance equipment to monitor crime, many years ago it did not seem as possible as it is. The police are not the only thing clocking your driving speed, so is a camera on the traffic light. Malls have cameras systems, some security TVs the customers can see. This new use of technology and advances in technology make the profession of surveillance available to individuals, an example is home security systems. Some homes have outside cameras that monitor the door and garage areas.

Other countries are more honest about the use of surveillance equipment. As Managers and Leaders we must stay up-to-date on surveillance abilities and protect individual’s rights. Management and Leadership also requires in some cases, becoming an advocate. Some surveillance use may be questionable.

TMSC International® Management & Leadership: Associations

Association is a relationship with someone or organizations. It is important to remember that the individuals we associate with and the organizations we join also tell something about ourselves.

I was raised in Los Angeles, California, many people “name drop”, they say they know people they may not know and they use peoples names to get things that puts the other person in the position to find out more about them.

As Professionals, individuals have letters of reference, resumes, and vitas. These documents show professional experience, work experience, and educational classes.

Organizations and personal associations also are important in career development.

TMSC International® Management & Leadership: Finding Internships

How to get a job has changed. In a Business seminar, it was predicted that individuals would change jobs/careers eight (8) times in a lifetime. I guess if you read Who’s Who, this is  not a new trend. My first career job after college wanted me to have two years of experience. I had to take a position that requires a High School Diploma to get the experience.

How can someone do a better job at starting a career than I did. I figured it out. I was required to do one internship for graduation. This experience was counted toward my experience for employment.

What if, instead of having fun during the Summer School Session, I did an Internship Each Year?

As a manager, I recruited Intern students. Many people don’t like internships because they don’t really pay. But because you are in some type of College/University program, you can get a position that gives you experience you would not qualify for.

Be Better than me! Participate in as many Internships as you can, Start your career in a higher “Position”.

Post Script (PS)

Look up the companies you are interested in. Company values can have an impact on your career. Some companies hire the intern-students. Some companies like to hire from within more than others. Some companies pay for education once hired. Some companies do not encourage employees to attend school. Company values are important to your future. Others know about companies and judge character, even if the judgement may be incorrect.
