African communicators coming to Johannesburg

first_imgThey will be attending the third annual 2010 National Communication Partnership Conference. The conference will be held in Johannesburg on July 29 and 30.The theme of the 2008 Conference is ‘Africa’s time has come, Mobilising for 2010 and beyond’. This is a call to action to everyone to stand up and be counted. It is derived from South Africa’s bid to host the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, which was themed ‘Africa’s time has come – South Africa is ready’.The many entities that work within the shared communication framework of South Africa’s 2010 National Communication Partnership include Government Communication Information Systems (GCIS) the International Marketing Council (IMC), Proudly South African, the South African 2010 FIFA World Cup™, SA Tourism, private sector and Civil Society.Explains Nkenke Kekana, the Chairperson of the 2010 National Communication Partnership, “We want to achieve a coherent and action-oriented plan. That is why the conference this year is held over two days as against the one day conferences we held in 2006 and 2007. The conference will make it possible for African communicators to exchange ideas and practical suggestions on how to improve the continent’s image and reputation in the world, using the opportunities presented by the 2010 World Cup”.“It is also a way to build African solidarity and to foster a climate that contributes to African growth and development”, said Nkwenkwe Nkomo, the Co-Chairperson of the 2010 National Communication Partnership.The first day of the conference will have a South African focus, and delegates will be introduced to the United South Africa Campaign.The second day will focus on sharing the Partnership’s communication framework for the next two years and the emphasis will be on Africa. One of the highlights will be a presentation by a Public Relations expert from Africa who will address the way to mobilise, communicate and market the continent.Ends.Issued by:Meropa Communications on behalf of The National Communication PartnershipFor more information, please contact:Lauretta Theys: 011 772 1000/ 083 444 4755laurettat@meropa.co.za orPamela Dlamini: 011 772 1000// 082 686 2198pamelad@meropa.co.zaGosebo Mathope IMC: 078 784 3724gosebom@brandsouthafrica.comlast_img read more

TV.com Comes to the iPhone

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … frederic lardinois Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologycenter_img Thanks to the new TV.com application from CBS, you can now stream clips and full episodes of popular TV shows like ‘CSI:Miami’ or the original ‘Star Trek’ right to your iPhone or iPod Touch. You can even watch full episodes of Beverly Hills 90210, if you are so inclined. Besides shows from CBS, the app (iTunes link) also features shows from CNet, Showtime, and the CW. Currently, the only other app that features full episodes of TV shows is Joost, but we are still waiting for iPhone apps from other TV networks, Hulu, or Sling. Great App, But Not Enough Content Overall, the application is smartly designed – the scrolling bar for the different channels at the top of the app is a very neat feature, for example – but the amount of content is somewhat limited. That, of course, is a problem that TV.com is quite familiar with, especially after Hulupulled its videos from the service’s web site.The fact that you can’t easily see if TV.com actually has full episodes of a particular show or only clips is especially problematic. A 30-second clip from ‘Numb3rs,’ for example, isn’t usually going to be very interesting, while short clips are probably all you want from the ‘Late Show with David Letterman.’Will TV.com Push Others to Release Similar Apps?It’s a shame that there is currently no application that features a broader range of content from a larger number of networks. The Joost application is interesting, but its content, too, is limited, and we are still awaiting the launch of the rumored Hulu application. NBC experimented with an iPhone compatible mobile site a while back that actually featured full episodes, but that site doesn’t seem to feature any full episodes anymore. At least, however, Apple isn’t blocking these apps, which are, after all, competing with the downloadable shows in iTunes. Tags:#Apple#mobile#NYT#Podcasts#web Related Posts last_img read more

Physical Security Executives Gather to Demystify IT Techno-Babble to Better Engage the C-Suite

first_imgIn response to the growing number of cyber-attacks and data breaches that are increasing the exposure to corporate C-suite and boards of directors, a select group of thirty high-level security executives gathered in Chicago February 26th for networking and sharing strategies to better position themselves in C-level discussions.The intent of the meeting was to provide a plain-English translation of IT security concepts and actions intended to give the physical security leaders the background to engage in discussions of protecting information and technology with their corporate peers and executives. “This was a unique gathering of senior security professionals that included the current president of ASIS International and three past presidents,” said Ray O’Hara, executive vice president of AS Solution and one of the past presidents. “It is amazing how much our existing security expertise directly relates to the information security world.” Dave Tyson, chief information security officer at SC Johnson and the first CISO to lead ASIS as its 2015 president, addressed the attendees. A recognized expert on the topic, Tyson started his career in traditional security practice before earning his MBA in digital technology management. Prior to SC Johnson, he worked for companies such as IBM, eBay, and Pacific Gas and Electric.Tyson provided the attendees easily understandable explanations of common IT buzzwords to demystify the techno-babble. The goal was to allow security practitioners to understand the challenges and make better business decisions related to: – Infrastructure – Applications – Cloud – Mobile – Big data – Social media – TOR – Dark web- Sponsor – Hosted by Keith Blakemore, director of security and loss prevention at WW Grainger, the gathering came about from discussions by Blakemore, O’Hara, and Tyson. A December 27, 2014, Forbes magazine article titled “Why It’s Time for a Board-Level Cybersecurity Committee” by Betsy Atkins, a three-time CEO and a director at Darden, HD Supply, and Schneider Electric, reinforced the need for the meeting.In the article Atkins writes, “Step one for every board is to understand that it is supposed to be offering oversight on these risks as part of its fiduciary duty. The board needs to assure there are internal controls in place to protect the corporation’s cyber assets. The stakes are high. A study found that up to $21 trillion in global assets could be at risk from cybercrime. What is needed is a solid board structure for monitoring and managing cyber risk in the company. To begin, I recommend is a series of committee briefings so ‘cyber security’ is demystified and better understood.” The full article is available on forbes.com.
