Enterprise Digital Intelligence Risks: Need for Smarter Search Tools

Ronald Kopfer Jr, Founder and Chairman at Heureka Software, LLC based in United States participates in Risk Roundup with Jayshree Pandya to discuss “Enterprise Digital Intelligence Risks and Need for Smarter Search Tools”.



The digital global age creates large amount of digital content- that is digital data. Without having effective ability to search digital data and have timely access to it, is like having a car, but with no gas. Just having digital content has no value, if it is not accessible in the right format at right time.

The solution seems to revolve around “search engines”. By having effective “search engines” is how individuals and entities across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be able to access the digital content either on individual computer, intranet or internet.

When we talk about any individual entity, organization or an enterprise, it is through such “search engines” that the internal human resources (individuals) find the information they need from anywhere, in any format, from anywhere within their entity – in databases, document management systems, inside anywhere-anyplace within their corporate boundaries.

Getting the right information at the right time is the key to right digital intelligence.  So in absence of effective tools and techniques, for any entity across NGIOA to have to go through large amounts of digital data within its organizational boundaries across nations is a complex challenge and a critical security risk.

While there are several search engines for the digital data and information that is published on internet, when it comes to any individual entity or enterprises internal intranet across the geographical boundaries, effective “search” is still a complex challenge. This is more so—when the nature of enterprise boundaries is now blurred in cyberspace, geospace and space. (CGS).

Moreover, there are reports that most enterprises still lack central data and information repository that covers their boundaries across CGS.  Even the ones that have one are not very effective.

When enterprise data and data intelligence search is still a complex challenge and when we don’t have an ability to know whether the data and information that is found within the enterprise boundaries is authentic, it is a cause of concern. It is also a concern because even today different components of an entity or an enterprise has no knowledge or intelligence about the available data across its corporate boundaries.

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve “Global Peace through Risk Management”. It is her strong belief that collaboration between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the NGIOA framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the digital global age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!
At Risk Group, Jayshree is defining the language of risks and currently developing thought leadership, researching needed practices, tools, framework and systems to manage the “strategic and shared risks” facing nations in a “Global Age”. She believes that cyberspace cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As cyber-security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched “cyber-security risk research center” that will merge the boundaries of “geo-security, cyber-security and space-security”.
Previously, she launched and managed “Risk Management Matters”, an online risk journal and one of the first risk publications, publishing “Industry Risk Reports of Biotechnology, Energy, Healthcare, Nanotechnology, and Natural Disasters” over the course of five years. Jayshree’s inaugural book, “The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk”, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Roundup

“Risk Roundup” is an “integrated strategic security risk dialogue” for nations: its government,  industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) in cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS).Risk Roundup is released in both audio and video format and is available for subscription at (Risk Group WebsiteiTunesGoogle PlayStitcher RadioAndroid, and Risk Group Professional Social Media).

About Risk Group
Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
