"We have to move at a speed that, frankly, these collaborations have not traditionally been capable of."

Cybercriminals certainly are speeding up.

According to the FBI, the cost of online scams and fraud for Americans more than doubled from 2008 to 2009, reaching nearly $560 million.

The organizers of the Worldwide Cybersecurity Summit planned from the beginning for the event to be a launching pad for concrete results.

The biggest component of the conference organized by the EastWest Institute was a series of workshops where attendees – security professionals, government officials and business executives – worked with industry experts to craft suggestions for how their industries could prepare for cyberattacks.

By Patrick Thibodeau on Mon, May 10, 2010

Computerworld — Last week’s U.S. government report showing an increase of 290,000 jobs in April brought some good news to tech workers as there was a sharp increase in IT hiring.

CIO.com’s IT Job Search Bible

Perhaps even more important for tech workers, Dice.com, an IT jobs board, reported a sizable increase in the percentage of opportunities for full-time rather than contract workers.

In terms of the broader numbers, TechServe Alliance , an industry group that tracks month-to-month IT hiring trends, reported Monday that tech employers added 17,300 jobs in April, rebounding from a slight dip in March. Alexandria, Va.-based TechServe said the latest numbers, part of a mostly upward trend that started late last year, are a clear indication that momentum has returned to the technology market.

Foote Partners LLC in Vero Beach, Fla., Monday released a report that supported TechServe Alliance’s analysis of U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data. Foote said its analysis of IT employment saw a net gain of 8,800 jobs in April, representing a swing of nearly 16,000 jobs from March when IT employment dipped by nearly as much.

It’s important to note that that there is no one analysis or set of numbers on the state of IT hiring. The various groups that analyze labor data can pull from different government labor data sets, that can either be broad or more focused on bellwether categories, such as in the case in Foote. But while the approaches may differ, there is usually agreement on the broader trends.
