Royal Bank opens cyber security lab on campus

Article retrieved from the Daily Bulletin on January 30, 2018. 

The Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) is opening a cyber security lab and investing $1.78 million into research at the University of Waterloo to develop advanced cybersecurity and privacy tools.

Online malicious attacks and botnets have become increasingly sophisticated and targeted as people share more and more personal data online. Security teams are often working within legacy hardware systems, across international borders with varying restrictions, and need to prepare for the post-quantum threat. Researchers are poised to create new solutions beyond the current infrastructure, the current encryption systems and the current computing capabilities.

Practical tips on how to manage your career for happiness and success

This article is from CFA Institute Talk posted on January 22, 2018.

The environment for modern careers has changed dramatically over the past few decades.

Many describe the current environment as volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA). In this VUCA environment, organisations assume little or no responsibility for helping to manage employees’ careers. Meanwhile, professionals increasingly approach career planning from a total life perspective, putting emphasis on flexibility and personal development to remain both competitive and sane.

Often, the critical difference between successful and unsuccessful careers in the new work environment comes down to intentional, active, and effective career management. Your career is your responsibility, and it is up to you to take advantage of your opportunities and circumstances to further your career. A new guide from CFA Institute, Career Success: Navigating the New Work Environment, provides a practical model of career management designed to maximise passion for your work and minimise dissatisfaction in your career.
