Together we are stronger. And together we can make a difference. Due to the current health situation in our community, 10 leading healthcare systems are joining forces, creating CaringForSouthFlorida.org to help keep South Floridians safe and healthy during the pandemic.
We all need to do our part:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds – especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
- The CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
- Stay home as much as you can. If you must leave your home, the CDC recommends staying at least six feet from people who are not from your household, in both indoor and outdoor spaces.
For more information on what you can do to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community from COVID-19, see the CDC’s prevention tips. Remember, prevention saves lives. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/index.html

Insecure, Unsafe, and Lying Software.
Eduardo Fernandez, Professor of Computer Sci & Eng at FAU
Software systems are now an integral part of our life. Databases maintained by a variety of institutions & organizations define who we are, what we own, what is our expertise, our jobs, as well as holding our flight reservations, tickets for concerts, appointments, etc. In other words, they hold a panorama of our past, present, and future life. Most parts of this panorama persist through our whole life, and even beyond. Therefore, we need to expect that this data is accurate, protected properly, and designed appropriately. The entities that control all these data have an enormous influence on our lives and must be trustworthy. However, due to greed or negligence, sometimes software systems turn against us.
We show three recent examples of software that was intentionally or negligently mishandled by important corporations: Equifax’s database breach of 150 million records (insecure software); Volkswagen’s emission controls pollution deceit (lying software), and Boeing’s 737MAX crashes with 346 people dead (unsafe software). Details of these cases are described to see the errors and the intentional or negligent decisions that produced those outcomes. We’ll discuss how we can prevent these problems.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to roil businesses, many executives believe that both business and the nature of work will change forever. In order to support the business effectively, CIOs and technology executives need to help reimagine and reinvent the business and help the CEO and line-of-business leaders identify new opportunities in core, parallel, and new markets. Technology executives also must work with the executive team to identify what the future of work looks like and provide the infrastructure and tools necessary to support this new way of working.
