CIO pyramid scheme

Summary:On this week's Technolatte podcast, the Australian team looks at the ABC hack, the role of the CIO, and a class-action suit against Vodafone.

How exactly did the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) get hacked? Why is the CIO role being split into so many different C-something-O roles? And will a class-action suit for something that happened to Vodafone two years ago be successful?

On this week's Technolatte podcast, the Australian team discusses:

  • The site for a two-year-old ABC TV show being hacked in response to an interview with an anti-Islamic Dutch politician

  • Why the role of the CIO is now being increasingly split into other roles , such as chief technology officer and chief data officer

  • Law firm Piper Alderman remaining confident that customers who were unhappy with Vodafone in 2010 or 2011 will still be interested in signing up for a class-action suit against the company .
