Curves® and Jenny Craig® operate 7,000 Curves clubs and franchises globally and 400 Jenny Craig locations supported by IT service desks in California, Texas, and Australia. The two organizations combined to form Curves Jenny Craig in November 2013. Outdated systems, known internally as “the black hole,” plagued Jenny Craig with inefficient processes and created a lack of accountability. For example, records could not be categorized or prioritized properly, tracked by date or owner, and they could be intentionally hidden in an ambiguous status. Without visibility, Jenny Craig had no way to quantify the impact of their customer service. Mary Carter, manager of IT service, summed it up, “We had no reporting prior Cherwell Service Management.” Curves was in even worse shape as they logged tickets in an Excel® spreadsheet.
The NSA’s Information Assurance Directorate left many people scratching their heads in the winter
of 2015. The directive instructed those that follow its guidelines to postpone moving from RSA
cryptography to elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) if they hadn’t already done so.
“For those partners and vendors that have not yet made the transition to Suite B elliptic curve
algorithms, we recommend not making a significant expenditure to do so at this point but instead to
prepare for the upcoming quantum-resistant algorithm transition.”
The timing of the announcement was curious. Many in the crypto community wondered if there had been
a quantum computing breakthrough significant enough to warrant the NSA’s concern. A likely candidate
for such a breakthrough came from the University of New South Wales, Australia, where researchers
announced that they’d achieved quantum effects in silicon, which would be a massive jump forward for
Websites provide online businesses with an unprecedented level of contact with customers and end
users. However, they also place business information where it can be easily accessed by third parties –
often using automated tools known as “bots”. For many organizations, bots represent up to 50%
or more of their overall website traffic, from good bots engaged in essential business tasks to bad
bots conducting fraudulent activities. Regardless of business impact, bot traffic can reduce website
performance for legitimate users and increase IT costs. Organizations need a flexible framework to
better manage their interaction with different categories of bots and the impact that bots have on
their business and IT infrastructure.
