- What organizational culture is all about
- How to develop effective internal marketing programs to drive cultural change
- What are the key ingredients for a successful employee advocacy programs
- How to measure success of a cultural marketing program
Corporate culture has become a pop culture buzzword, but many executives don’t clearly understand the business purpose. This is one of the most untapped areas for marketers. Why? Consider this chain effect: Driving the right company narrative affects employee’s behaviors > collective behavior change affects company’s culture > and healthy organizational culture affects the entire company’s productivity. The stakes are high, with 70% of American employees are “disengaged” costing companies $450-to-$550 billion in lost productivity per year (Gallup). In his talk, Jason will address the genesis of the organizational culture movement, why it has become essential to growing a robust business and why it might possibly be the future of marketing.

The 22-year-old researcher, who goes by the name MalwareTech, has become an internet hero for their efforts to stem the spread of the WannaCry ransomware. MalwareTech, who is based in the U.K., did not disclose their identity or gender to CNN. MalwareTech published a blog post early Saturday morning detailing how they stopped the spread of this ransomware. Read the story here
It’s official: Most password-strength requirements are dumb
You must use at least one uppercase letter, a symbol, and a number. Or, wait, maybe not. ccording to the experts at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), some of the password-strength requirements drilled into our skulls over the years are actually not that helpful.
What’s worse, they may be counterproductive. As such, the institute issued a new draft of security guidelines on May 11, 2017, aimed at security professionals and recommending several significant changes to the password requirements we’ve come to accept as a necessary part of life.

Upon taking office in 2009, President Obama seized on electric vehicles as a tool for rebuilding American’s crumbling auto industry and curing an ailing planet. He has now spent two terms promoting the technology, investing in R&D, and providing rebates to push automakers and consumers closer to the age of electricity.
With just a few months before a new regime sweeps in, Obama’s Department of Transportation announced one of its final moves in that eight-year effort. It is funding a network of “electric vehicle charging corridors”—25,000 miles and 35 states of highway where EV drivers will reliably find places to plug in, every 50 miles or fewer.
If you’d like to learn more about EVs, then please register for ITP16 where you’ll be able to experience first-hand from Tesla’s team of knowledgeable assistants.
