Contingency Plan vs Fallback Plan

Today we are going to discuss the contingency plan and the fallback plan. This topic is very important from a PMP and PMI-RMP exam point of view. You may see a few questions testing your knowledge on this topic.

So understand this topic well.

Contingency and fallback plans are developed to manage identified risks. Since both plans are used to manage risks, you may wonder which plan you will use if any risk occurs.

A risk can be one of two types: identified risk, unidentified risk. Identified risks can be further divided into many categories, such as: primary risk, secondary risk, residual risk, etc. Now you may think that if any of these risks occur, which plan will you use to contain the risk?

This complicates the situation.

You have two kinds of reserves to manage the reserve: contingency reserve and management reserve. Now the question comes to mind which reserve will you use to implement the contingency plan and fallback plan?

Sylvester Stallone as rocky Balboa sylvester stallone

I grew up with the Rocky movies, and as you can tell from my updated profile pic, I still love them today. Now Creed – the seventh (!) Rocky installment – is in the cinemas. I thought this is reason enough to look back and reflect about what Rocky teaches us.

Rocky has stood the test of time as its lessons apply today as they did four decades ago. I skipped on the self-explanatory ones such as “it ain’t about how hard you hit, but about how hard you can get hit…” Here are my top five Rocky lessons, and I would love to hear your favorites:

  1. @telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security.
  2. @HERE Maps with Offline Navigation is just like your satnav or GPS. See your location and get accurate directions to your home.
  3. @Wunderlist helps millions of people around the world capture their ideas, things to do and places to see. Whether you're using phone, tablet, PC or Mac
  4. @Skype: Say “hello” to friends and family with an instant message, voice or video call on Skype for free.
  5. @LinkedIn: Manage your professional identity. Build and engage with your professional network and find perfect job.
  6. @Office: Explore Word, Excel... for an easier screen-reading experience, new ways to work together on documents, and tools that help you do your job.
  7. @XE: Get free live currency rates, tools, and analysis using the most accurate data with offline features. Other services include XE Trade money ...
  8. @swarmapp is an app that helps you keep up and meet up with your friends with check in feature to place that you have just visited.
  9. @KAYAK searches hundreds of travel and airline sites to help you find and book your flight for the absolute lowest fare.
  10. @TutanotaTeam: The open source app Tutanota enables you to send end-to-end encrypted emails to anybody with a tip of your finger.
  11. @duolingo: Learn languages completely free, without ads or hidden charges. It's fun, easy, and scientifically proven.
  12. @VyprVPN: encrypts your Internet connection to protect your online privacy and security, without sacrificing speed
  13. and of course @Twitter: Connect with your friends — and other fascinating people. Get in-the-moment updates on the things that interest you.

The ever-present threat of cyber attacks, highlighted by the host of massive data breaches affecting most sectors and countries, is forcing business of all sizes to take action. Some reports tell us that cyber security is a hot topic in the boardroom, while other reports imply that the board isn’t placing enough emphasis on this thorny matter.

Nevertheless, cyber crime and its associated consequences are here to stay, and if the board is not yet asking the tough questions, it is time that it did. While some might argue that the board is ill-equipped to challenge the CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) about cyber security risks and their counter measures, several organisations have already embarked on director training in cyber security.

Although boards of directors and CEOs may not need to know why a certain type of malware can penetrate a firewall, they will need to know what their organisation is doing to address threats known to penetrate firewalls. Discussions of cyber risk at board level should include identifying which risks to avoid, accept, mitigate or transfer (through cyber insurance), as well as reviewing specific plans associated with each approach.

software testing

Recently, software glitches have increasingly affected the average consumer – at airports, or with online banking. Often, we hear that the software wasn’t properly tested. But what does this mean exactly?

Every now and then, really spectacular software breakdowns occur. The opening of Heathrow Terminal 5 became a public embarrassment because the baggage system failed to function. More than 17 million customer accounts at RBS and its subsidiaries NatWest and Ulster Bank could be accessed for some or all of the day because the installation of customer management software corrupted the entire system. One of the biggest Austrian banks paid out €21 million to appease its customers with vouchers because the new online banking software didn’t work for days on end.

Errors like these are not only damaging to a company’s brand, but can also be very costly. The goal of software testing is to avoid such incidents and the consequences. On the following pages, we explore the topic of software testing and address these main questions:

twitter marketing tools and software

The majority of social media management tools are made specifically for Twitter or include Twitter along with other social networks. The following are just a sample of tools that can help you grow your audience, manage your status updates, monitor your brand, and measure your results:

Followerwonk – Followerwonk (mentioned earlier) will help you find people to connect with on Twitter based on keywords in their bio and location. You can sort or filter results by number of followers, number they are following, and tweets (along with their authority score).

HootSuite – HootSuite allows you to manage your Twitter profiles (along with other social networks including Google+ pages) all in one place. With their tabs and columns layout, you easily can monitor a variety of Twitter searches for people talking about your industry, people talking about your brand, Twitter lists, mentions, direct messages, and your home screen.

When NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden first emailed Glenn Greenwald, he insisted on using email encryption software called PGP for all communications. But this month, we learned that Snowden used another technology to keep his communications out of the NSA’s prying eyes. It’s called Tails. And naturally, nobody knows exactly who created it.

Tails is a kind of computer-in-a-box. You install it on a DVD or USB drive, boot up the computer from the drive and, voila, you’re pretty close to anonymous on the internet. At its heart, Tails is a version of the Linux operating system optimized for anonymity. It comes with several privacy and encryption tools, most notably Tor, an application that anonymizes a user’s internet traffic by routing it through a network of computers run by volunteers around the world.

Together with John Steele, Paul Hansmeier and Paul Duffy, attorneys at Prenda Law (formerly known, among other things, as Steele Hansmeier, PLLC), he made life fairly miserable for thousands of potential defendants. Prenda sought out web users that allegedly downloaded porn illegally. The firm then filed copyright infringement lawsuits against the users, threatening a lawsuit that would rat the users out for downloading porn and also subject them to a substantial statutory penalty for copyright infringement. Prenda promised that it could make all of that go away for a few thousand dollars (you can read more about the scheme here). Reportedly, the firm raked in millions as a result.

Gibbs wasn’t actually a member of the firm; he was “Of Counsel” – first to Steele & Hansmeier and then to Prenda. “Of Counsel” is sort of the equivalent of an independent contractor in the legal field: you have an affiliation but you’re not a bona fide employee of the firm.

For many years, I've worked as a technical editor and writer. As a result, I've had the privilege of proofreading the work of some truly brilliant, highly educated people. I've also had to write highly technical material that was then reviewed by experts. The review process is usually cordial and intellectually stimulating. Educated people are generally grateful when you fix their typos and their dangling participles.

They tend to be tough but fair when criticizing your writing. They generally stick to a rational discussion of facts. So I was unprepared for the kind of comments I got from the general public after I started blogging. Occasionally, someone would say something like, "Wow, that's interesting." But most of the comments are nothing more than poison pen letters: abusive nonsense intended to serve no other purpose than to provoke an emotional response. In short, I often get attacked by Internet trolls.

patent

Every now and then I have an application that is subject to a secrecy order by the government that restricts disclosure of the invention and prevents the publishing or granting of a patent. I noticed that a current application being held up really doesn’t seem to contain sensitive information but the application may have triggered the order itself by making a reference in the description that one of its many uses could be by the military. It would be analogous to an invention for an improved water bottle that you might describe as being beneficial to the military (a group that often needs bottled water in far away places) but that really is ordinary, everyday technology.

If you don’t know, the Invention Secrecy Act of 1951 requires the government to impose secrecy orders on certain patent applications that contain sensitive information, thereby restricting disclosure of the invention and withholding the grant of a patent. This requirement can be imposed even when the application is wholly created and owned by a private individual or company without government sponsorship or support.
